The Mongol Rally was the craziest, most intense, amazing, energizing, frustrating, fascinating thing we’ve done and we are still trying to process it! It’s impossible to remember every moment, but we are so thankful for all of the people that supported us before we left and along the way. We discovered a lot about an area of the world that was a mystery to us and we learned and reaffirmed things about ourselves (yes, we are both cranky when hungry). We are truly grateful for the friendship, hospitality and positive energy all along the way.
An extra big thank you to our friends and family who tirelessly helped us with all of our fundraising efforts and organization for the trip, and to all of our sponsors - check them out below!
Secret Level Films - an awesome Toronto-based production company.
Central Dental - if you need a dentist in Ottawa - check out Dr. Eid, he's awesome!
Ruze - Clean and simple feel-good products for environmentally-conscious customers.
Loudmouth Printhouse - Ottawa based artist-inspired graphic design and printhouse.
David and Sarita - Thank you for your generous support of our car. Your family picture made us many friends along the way!
At last count, we had raised over $8,000 for our two charities - The Stephen Lewis Foundation and the Lotus Children's Centre and that's not including the money that will be raised from the sale of our car! (You can still donate to our charities via the links at the top left if you feel so inclined).
We are still waiting to hear back from the organizers on how much our car sells for, but we are sure it will make a pretty penny.
We'll post more pictures from the trip once we have a chance to sort through all of them.
