a Truly Worthy Cause

The Adventurists’ mission statement is simple “make the world less boring and save a bit of it too”. It's only fair as we go out of our way to see all the world has to offer that we make an effort to give a little something back.

While the Kooks were spread across the globe excitedly anticipating the journey, a horrific flood struck the intended start location. Rain swept through the Kerala region in southern India in magnitudes not seen in a century at the cost of nearly 500 lives and thousands of homes.

It seems only fitting then that the Kooks use this trip to try and give a little back by raising funds for those impacted by the floods of Kerala. The Kooks will be teaming up with Habitat for Humanity to raise money to put roofs over the heads of those who have found themselves homeless. 

After the extreme generosity shown by our donors in smashing the original $1 per mile goal, the new aim is to raise $1 for every kilometer the Kooks travel (approximately $4,000). To get those donations flowing, we are offering small incentives for reaching the following pledge targets:

  • $20 - Travel with us in spirit and have your name sketched on one of our Rickshaws with a pic to prove it!

  • $100 - ↑ + a postcard with a handwritten thank you from somewhere along our journey. Blessed by a monk.

  • $ TOP 2 DONORS $ - ↑ + Name one of our Rickshaws!! The name will be on everything and everywhere, make it witty, funny, crass or boring. Doesn't matter. Your choice. (within reason...no “Rick-@%$&-Shaw”)
