Baja - Spring 2010
*Donate $100 for the chance to win an 8-day, all-expenses-paid-trip to the outlaw land that is Baja, mexico*
Join forces with the feisty, fun-loving team of 4th World Love as they meander up and down majestic Highway 1 on the hunt for the next remote village to hang the 4th World Flag. 4th World Love is a grassroots NGO focused on promoting community development in distant lands and with a super successful CDC (Community Development Center) already bustling in magical Indonesia, we're looking to move into Phase 1 of the next location, brave-and-beautiful Baja. The 4WL process begins with what we like to call an "Extreme Scouting Expedition."
Imagine slurping down margaritas while gazing out over the Sea of Cortez, cruising dusty back roads full of adventure, late-night star-gazing in the middle of nowhere, and lots of lend-a-hand escapades. The goal is zeroing in on the perfect village to house the next CDC, and a mere $100 donation not only helps fund life-changing 4th World projects, it gets you that much closer to winning the opportunity to join us in the fun. Donate $200 and your name goes in the pot 2x. $300 bones and you get 3 chances. $1k--well, you do the math! And, the best thing is that every cent you donate is a complete write-off, as 4WL is a 501 (c) 3.
And, of course you can donate less than $100--every single penny counts. but, remember it takes $100 to get you into the contest!
Details of the amazing trip are as follows:
Accommodations: Part seaside camping in palapas on the beach, part charming inn's
Food: mouthwatering tamales, icy-cold cervezas, and all the crispy fish tacos you can eat
Transport: Comfy Land Rover (we depart from Los Angeles; winner gets flown in from their hometown and spends the night on Misty's pirate-style ketch-rigged sailboat before hitting the road)
Timeframe: Early Spring 2010
Baja Comfort Level: You've got Baja masters as guides, so just enjoy the ride and make that change...

4WL never, ever uses the money we raise to fund anything BUT our projects in distant lands. We use our own hard-earned cash to get us there, keep us fed & housed - and same goes for when we scout future locales.
