Since launching our Rickshaw Run fundraising campaign two weeks ago, we’ve received so much kind support from you guys. Here’s a big THANK YOU!
But our fundraising goal is $4,000 and we’re still a long way to go from our target — we need your help!
India is home to a third of the world’s poorest community, with climate change hitting them the hardest. Unprecedented heat waves, cyclones and floods are already displacing thousands of families. We believe in the positive impact of tourism, and hope to contribute directly to the communities of India during our Rickshaw Run.
Remember that ALL the funds raised go to charity.

The 8-day Golden Triangle trip will introduce you to three very different major cities of India and the colorful rural life of Rajasthan. Some of the highlights of the trip include a walking tour in Delhi with a guide from the Planeterra-supported Streetkids Project, visiting the legendary Taj Mahal, wandering through the Pink City of Jaipur and getting a taste of village life in Abhaneri. For those short on time, this would be an excellent trip to take it all in within a short timeframe.

7 nights of hotel accommodation.
Charter bus, taxis, cycle rickshaw and tuktuk (what we’re driving in India!).
Chief Experience Officer (CEO) throughout and local guides.
Small group experience: Max 15 people and average 12 in a group.
The giveaway is opened to all nationalities of age 18 and above. The prize does not include flights to India but it does include transportation, sights and accommodation during the trip. The G Adventures booking Terms and Conditions* will apply to the tour and the winner.
