DELIVER TOYS TO AN ORPHANAGE IN MONGOLIA

fun fundraising idea DELIVER TOYS TO AN ORPHANAGE IN MONGOLIA

DELIVER TOYS TO AN ORPHANAGE IN MONGOLIA COMPLETED

As most of you will already know, we were unfortunately intercepted by Kazakhstans customs officers while on our adventure. Not only did they accost us and relieve us of a pair of Eshs' animal themed underwear but they also relieved us of both of our GoPro's.
Needless to say this made us very sad. What was worse was only realising that they did this after having left the border. In summary we left that border a lot lighter than when we had arrived.

We did deliver the toys to the orphanage and stayed there for the day to play with the kids who were awesome!

We also got an email from the orphanage with more photos but the email went as follows:

"Hey. Here are the pictures of the kids who received your gifts. It's Sandyktau orphanage in Akmola oblast, Kazakhstan. The kids were so happy to those gifts. Thank you, guys.

I hope everything is great with you. Also please send me the picture of us in Astana.

Many thanks.

DELIVER TOYS TO AN ORPHANAGE IN MONGOLIA

As well as seeing the world, making memories and raising money for CoolEarth, we wanted to help some of the local charities along the way that do such great work in their respective countries. Lotus Children's Centre is one of these charities and does some amazing work with kids in Mongolia.

Starting from a single apartment Lotus has grown to house, feed, care for and educate 80 children. At one stage Lotus was caring for around 150 children including many abandoned babies. Now the economic situation in Mongolia is better and babies are abandoned less and less. This is reflected in the ages of the children in the care of Lotus, that in 2015 ranged from 4 to 18 years old.

**UPDATE: After speaking to the folks at Lotus, they seem inundated with toys but they could really do with any sports equipment that we could get our hands on. Less so footballs and rugby balls etc but volleyball nets, quick cricket sets etc. Any donations in cash or in sports kit would be much appreciated!

Please see the below link for more information about this wonderful charity that we're going to visit:

WHAT YOU WILL GET

A Youtube video as well as pictures of us delivering the toys that we've gathered to Lotus Childrens' Centre in Mongolia. We'll also be writing up the whole experience on our blog so you can read all about it!

Plus the satisfaction of saving the rainforest by donating to Cool Earth & aiding urban refugees via Xavier Project.
