Wanted: Sponsors

Posted by: Scott In: Pre-Rally

It’s getting down to the line now. We have only 97 days left until the start of the rally. There’s a lot left to do, and there is still much money to be raised.

We are, of course, always grateful for personal donations. Without all of you this wouldn’t be possible. What we are currently looking for are some businesses, local and otherwise, that would be willing to sponsor our team for a modest tax-deductible amount. In return for a sponsorship your company will receive press coverage as well as your logo and web site link on our site. Your logo on our rally car is also an option.

Sponsorship opportunities start as low as $300. If your company is interested please contact us. The application deadline is July 15th (but the earlier the better as far as publicity for your company goes!).

Hope everyone had a good Easter Sunday!

Our Goal

Posted by: Scott In: Pre-Rally

I’ve been posting a lot on the adventure aspects of the rally of late. I must admit that that is one of the big draws for me—the chance to travel to foreign lands and interact with different people and cultures. But that’s not the main goal of this trip.

As most of you probably know by now, we are in this to raise money for our main charity, Mercy Corps. Since its inception in 1979, Mercy Corps has donated over $1.5 billion in assistance to people in 106 nations across the globe. They take a “teach a man how to fish” philosophy to philanthropy—aiming at the root of the problem instead of just providing temporary assistance. Their main goals over the past thirty years have been education, medical care, training, and clean water and sanitation.
