We’ve raised £1000 for charity!

Thank you to all those who have donated so far. We’ve just broken the £1000 mark if you include gift aid! If you’re yet to donate or want to check our progress – click here.

This is such an important landmark for a number of reasons:

  • We will be driving 13 x 1000 miles to Ulaanbaatar!
  • 1000 is binary for the number 8 which is a lucky number meaning to generate wealth in chinese culture – and Mongolia, our destination, is RIGHT BESIDE CHINA!
  • Тысяча is a famous 3 player Russion card game that translates as 1000, and we are travelling through Russia!
  • Mongolia begins with the letter M and as a Roman Numeral, M means 1000!
  • In the Holocene calendar the year 1000 is 11000 which when all the individual digits are added together = 2, which is the number of people in our team!
  • Mathematically, 1000! (factorial) has 2625 numbers in it, with 248 zeros at the end of it – if you add up the individual digits of 2625 and subtract from the digits of 248 summed togeather, you get 1, which when multiplied by 1000 equals 1000.  Weird huh?
  • If you take the number 1000 you can draw a smiley face with the middle two zero’s as eyes, the one as a nose, and the remaining zero as a mouth!

Fascinating stuff.

    I cannot begin to tell you how much all you are doing means to me. I was sent a photograph last week of 340 children at a school in North Darfur – and the thick slimey green sludge which was the water they were crowding up to drink. I still feel queasy thinking of it. What you are doing is going to help us make a real, tangible, lasting difference to children in Darfur. I can’t begin to thank you …… you are incredible!
