1722: A Vietnam Odyssey by Ben Mudge and Adam Voak
2 blokes, 2 bikes and 2 goals: experience Vietnam by bicycle, and raise money for a great cause!
So why 1722? Well, for a number of reasons really.
Firstly, it is the distance we will ride our bicycles (yes, the pedal kind ….. No, really, a push bike) in kilometres from Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City to the capital Hanoi.
Secondly, it was the number of excuses that we came up with not to have a crack, every excuse under the sun was explored, nothing was off the table, until finally we said ………… @!$# lets do it.
Thirdly, most importantly, we are aiming to raise 4000USD for The Sharing Kitchen and we need roughly 1722 donations of just 3AUD so we can reach this goal. All monies 100% (no exceptions) will go directly to a wonderful project that will help so many poor children in this community to access clean water and sanitation at school. Look, we know back in Australia and New Zealand you are persistently badgered for requests for help from this charity or that. The Sharing Kitchen has no infrastructure to support, it is manned by gracious young volunteers (mainly university students) and all monies go directly to specific projects.
