MKpandas46 for the Weilor Primary School

Year 1

MKpandas 46

£3,179.10 raised towards our £3,673.00 target.
Help us reach our goal!

We live in Milton Keynes, a city lost in the UK countryside. Life sometimes here is boring enough, so once we said to ourselves

"Why don't we do something crazy next year? Why don't we participate in the Mongol Rally 2017?".

And that's it. We will then drive a 15 y.o. Clio from the city were we live, Milton Keynes, to Ulan-Ude, in Russia, crossing the magical land of Mongolia. But then someone told us

"You know that Mongol Rally is for a good cause?",

and us

"No, really?",

then they replied

"Oh yes, it's a charity race! You need to raise money to do that, and donate them to a charity association you want".

We then pondered for a couple of seconds, made a couple of calls, and finally concluded

"Oh super-cool!! We'll be super glad do to that! And you know what, we're gonna do even better! We're gonna donate the money we raise to Mary's Meals, and we will push very hard to cover all the expenses to provide a yearly need of food and forniture for the Weilor Primary School in Liberia!".

This is more or less what happened.

Apart from the nice story, we are researchers, and as such we truly believe in the value of education, which is for us one of the fundamental bricks to build a better world. Liberia is one of the most food-vulnerable country in the world, and education cannot be guaranteed without food support. That's why next year we are going to drive for a very long journey, about 10000 miles, to convince people to support our cause, and donate money to give the Weilor Primary School's children a better future.
