G'day Everyone!

Team 'That's Not A Car!' here consisting of Patrick, Haylee, James and Natalie, reaching out to you from stunning Sydney!

WHAT?
On Sunday 16th July 2017, we will be embarking on a life-changing journey to London, England. From there we will thunder over 16,000 kilometres across mountains, desert and steppe of Europe and Asia, to finish about 40 days-ish later, and over a quarter of the way around the globe, in Ulan-Ude, Siberia. We will be doing this crazy trip all in the name of charity.

There is...
No backup
No support
No set route


WHAT DO YOU NEED & WHAT WILL I GET?
We are very keen to get to the Mongol Rally finish line in Ulan-Ude, Russia (the middle of woop woop). To do this we need a lot of different things to keep us going (and to get us started again when we most likely cark it in the middle of the Kazakh desert).

We've consulted with experts from around the world and we've whittled down our wish list to a survival list. Everything on this list is vital to the success of our mission - well almost everything. And for helping us out, we're going to help you out in return. Here's a list of rewards:

Level 1: Listed on our website and social media as a sponsor
Level 2: Listed on our website and social media as a sponsor + 1 x small logo on our car
Level 3: Listed on our website and social media as a sponsor + 2 x small logos on our car
Level 4: Listed on our website and social media as a sponsor + 2 x medium logos on our car
Level 5: Listed on our website and social media as a sponsor + 2 x large logos on our car
Level 6: Listed on our website and social media as a sponsor + 2 x large logos on our car + logo on our t-shirts
Ultimate: LIsted on our website and social media as our principal sponsor + Prominent logo placement on our car as the principal sponsor + your logo on our team t-shirts.

YOU'RE ALL GROWN UPS, WHY DO YOU NEED DONATIONS?
This is a charity event and our goal is to raise funds and awareness for our charities: Cool Earth & Father Chris Riley's Youth Off The Streets. To ensure that our mission is a success, we need to take some reasonable precautions to ensure that our little car will make it to the finish line. We'll be covering our personal expenses (flights, accommodation, food, insurance, etc) but there are a few items that we'd like your help with.

  • Thanks Mark! We really appreciate your generosity! We’ve decided to put your money towards something called a map. Apparently it’s like Google Maps, except it’s a lot bigger and it doesn’t need batteries - the wonders of modern technology huh? So we’ll be thinking of you when we get lost =) Team That’s Not A Car! Patrick, Haylee, Natalie & James
