Duckies

Our team name was The Rubber Duckies, and in order to spur donations, we brought a whole bunch of rubber duckies along with us on our journey.

Every person who donated to our charities got the opportunity to “adopt” their own personalized rubber ducky, which we brought on the rally and gave away to a kid along the way. This was our way to let our friends and family come on the rally in spirit, and explore Central Asia along with us…not to mention that it helped children in need.

All in all, we gave away over 250 duckies — 167 of them sponsored by our friends and families, and around 90 extra ones which we gave out on top of that.

 

Where all the duckies ended up

We’ve mapped out where we gave away every single ducky, and posted a photo of all of them as well. (Check out this map!)

rubber_duckies_map

We ended up giving out two types of duckies:

  • Duckies – Sponsored duckies, which we only gave to children. These were named by the person who adopted them.
  • Honorable Duckies – Duckies we gave out to adult friends we made, fellow ralliers, and people who helped us along the way. We picked out our own names for these duckies.

 

Photo Gallery

Scroll through the photos of all of our ducky recipients. After you press play, I suggest that you click the “full screen” button (lower right), and then click the “Show Info” link on the upper right so that you can see the name, location, and story behind each of the duckies.

We have also uploaded this gallery to Facebook.

 

Ducky Log

Finally, here’s our log of where we gave the duckies away…might be a bit easier to pinpoint where yours went!
