TukTuk Trio Take Good Karma to India for Charity Challenge
As part of the Dreamcatcher initiative, Karmarama trio Zahra Mair, Vicki Murfitt and Demi Osman completed the Rickshaw challenge, driving a tuk tuk across the Malabar Coast of India.
The Dreamcatcher intiative involves Karmarama employees sending in a dream to the internal Dreamcatcher team, who select a winner that receive £1000 and a week off to make it happen.
This year, Zahra Mair, Vicki Murfitt and Demi Osman won with their combined dream to take part in the Rickshaw challenge. The Rickshaw challenge involves teams racing TukTuk’s against the clock to a daily destination. Covering almost 1100km, with no directions or help with mechanical malfunctions, the experience sees the groups immersing themselves in Indian culture, asking locals for help when they breakdown or directions when they get lost.
As part of the challenge, Zahra, Vicki and Demi were fundraising for the agency’s charity of the year Shelter from the Storm. Over months of fundraising, TukTuk themed events, Karmarama lunches, and activities around the office, the ladies smashed their initial £3,000 target and raised over £5,000 for the shelter!
