My Adventure Story
The Modern Gypsies Compassionate Adventure Series
Our first compassionate adventure will make it possible to bring water to the homes of more than450 people. As per our motto, for every act of compassion, comes a great adventure. With this being said we will be summiting two warm up peaks, Rucu Pichincha and Illiniza North before we attack the19,347 ft summit of Cotopaxi.
One Epic Adventure
19,347 ft. above sea level lies the breathtaking summit of Cotopaxi; one of the world’s tallest and most active stratovolcanos.
On our first compassionate adventure we will attempt to be the first mustachioed adventurers to summit this peak (please don’t hold us to this, it’s probably not a true fact).
Follow our icy mustachicles on this journey up the biggest and baddest volcano, in one of the most enchanting lands on earth.
Are we seasoned mountaineers? Not really. Can we do it? We think so!
One Great Act of Compassion
In the Chimborazo Province, high up in the Andes mountains, lives the indigenous community of Gulahuayco.
The Ecuadorian government destroyed 2km of pipe providing water to over 450 people in the village.
With no clean water, the villagers petitioned to have it fixed, but they were denied.
Now, in the village of Gulahuayco you’ll find a tap that runs dry in every house and a community water tank that sits empty.
During our compassionate adventure we’ll have the opportunity to live with the locals and experience this reality. Because of our fans and supporters contributions, we will be able to return water to the homes of more than 450 people This will save time for everyone, correct the injustice that was the destruction of the old system, and make use of existing resources for the benefit of the whole village.
Do we know how to lay 2 kilometers of piping? No. Will we embarrass ourselves? Yes (don’t worry, we’ll have professionals with us).
