Team Fluke-Lorico haven't posted any updates yet.
By fluke, we, a Portuguese couple, Sofia and Pedro, came across the Mongol Rally and in a matter of days decided to join this journey. This will be a life changing event in our lifes. The rally will be about getting lost and being able to find ourselves, who we are and who we want to become. They say dancing is a way to self express so we decided to call ourselves Flukelorico. Folcolore, is a traditional Portuguese dance reflecting our country and beliefs, and fluke means "luck". so what better way than to call ourselves FLUKELORICO.
Cool Earth, the official charity partner of the Mongol Rally, is a non-profit organisation that works alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change. So far 216,402,960 trees have been protected and 234,436,540 tonnes of CO2 stored through the organisation's efforts in all three rainforest biomes – the Congo Basin, Amazonia and Oceania. Cool Earth's approach is unique in that it puts people (not trees) at the frontline of their efforts. So whilst your donation is protecting the rainforest and its countless species, such as the Philippine Tarsier (go look it up it's cute!!) you are also supporting the creation of resilient communities through education and health programs.
The Christina Noble Children’s Foundation is dedicated to serving vulnerable children in Mongolia who are in need of housing, medical care and educational opportunities. With Ulaanbataar being the coldest capital city in the world, having temperatures reaching -40 to -50 degree Celsius, inadequate housing presents a deadly threat to its poorest inhabitants. That's why we have set ourselves the goal to raise £2,800 - enough money to gift a "Ger" (traditional nomadic tent) to a family in need. A "Ger" does not only remove children from squalid and unhealthy living conditions but offers security to families under pressure. Your support will enable us to visit a family in need and positively transform their life.
