Our fellow travelers at Abandon the Cube have decided to venture into a whole new arena—volunteering. They have abandoned their cubicles to travel, and now they are using their love of travel to help people in need. This summer ATC is tackling the Mongol Rally, a 10,000-mile race from London to Ulan Bataar that will take the adventurers through twenty countries and several time zones.
The rally will last over a month, depending on the route these intrepid wanderers take. The end result is a dust-covered duo in Mongolia donating their rally car to be auctioned for charity, and delivering the money they raise for Mercy Corps Mongolia. They also hope to volunteer their time once on the steppe before continuing their independent travels in South East Asia.
ATC would love for you to get involved by making a small donation to Mercy Corps Mongolia through the Abandon the Cube website. Each donation gets them closer to their goal, and thus closer to the steppes of Mongolia! You can also donate via the widget below. If you are looking for a great way to spend your summer in 2011 then look no further than next years rally—ATC will be on hand to answer any questions about the race, the charity or Mongolia if you have an interest in participating next year.
