A MILLION KMS, A MILLION DOLLARS...
Tom has now raised over $100,000 for charity and has set his sights on a long term goal of donating $1 Million dollars to charity to different organisations.
Through his epic trips Tom generates a level of interest and attention. From the very beginning Tom has taken this attention and turned it onto others who he deems are more worthy of having their story heard. Tom's hope is that through his trips he can shine the light on the people who are making a positive difference in our world.
The goal of raising one million dollars is a huge total that will take years, maybe decades to complete, but it's deliberately excessive. The funds raised will go towards helping give opportunities to those who wouldn't otherwise get them. Allowing people to pursue their own goals and do their own incredible things.
It will take plenty of sweat and support, but the reward of the success is worth the challenge!

MAKE NOISE NEPAL
A month long solo trek to Mt Everest Base Camp, Make Noise Nepal was an awareness raising effort about the prevalence of modern slavery.
Spending time with human trafficking survivors before beginning his trek, Tom compared his hike with the loss of basic human rights and asked what really is a challenge?
