T H W T is a follow up to previous projects Calle Wollgård have done to the benefit of Happy Child and Barnhem Muang Mai - the third in succession.
Calle has now gathered a new team consisting of himself, Eva Eriksson and Lovisa Håkansson. Together they will bicycle around the world in favor of the Happy Child Foundation and Barnhem Muang Mai.
They started 1st of October 2016 at Barnhem Muang Mai in Phuket in southern Thailand.
In the same place as they will cross the finishing line in about one year.
This after they have crossed 27 countries, four continents and bicycled more than 30 000 km.
The purpose of this project is multiple.
The first purpose of the trip will be to raise funds to Barnhem and the goal is to raise at least a year's expenses for Barnhem (about SEK 1.2 million).
During most of 2014 Calle and three friends conducted a similar adventure as they bicycled from Sweden to Barnhem in Thailand.
They then did not ran in to a single person who wanted to do them any bad, quite the contrary.
Thanks to this amazing experience they have a belief that the world and its population is mostly good.
The second purpose of this trip is to show this to the public.
Since much of what is reported in the media today is quite negative Calle, Eva and Lovisa feel that it is of more important than ever to show the opposite, that our planet, after all, is a very kind and pleasant place.
As most people know bicycling is a very environmentally friendly, healthy and as well pleasant way to get around, they want to additionally increase the interest of the Swedish as well as international population regarding the use of the bicycle as a means of transport.

I want to be a part of The Happy World Tour by contributing!
We at Happy Child and everyone at Barnhem are incredibly grateful and humbled by the fact that Calle, Lovisa and Eva chose to make this sacrifice for us. For all the planning that has been required for the trip. For all the hours they have worked extra to be able to leave. For that they choose a year without income. For giving a year of their lives to help the children at Barnhem. And last but not least that they dare and want to prove that the world is a good place!
