This is a fundraiser to raise money for worthy causes.
Here's some more information about it:
On January 1, 2010, we're embarking on an epic adventure from the Himalayas of Nepal to the southern tip of India. Since you folks did such an awesome job of supporting our Rickshaw Run charities, raising 1,000 GBP in just ONE WEEK, we're raising the stakes.
We'd like to raise $10,000 for the three charities below. It's an extremely ambitious goal, but we have 5 months to do it and we'd like you to help us get there, all in the name of adventure and making the world better.
Please support the organizer's efforts by donating to one of the projects below.
