It's almost time for takeoff! On Sunday Thai Airways is flying The Happy World Tour gang - Calle, Loviisa and Eve - to Phuket. They will spend a few days in preparation at the orphanage before the Goodbye Party on October 1, when they will depart on their round-the-world cycling tour, not to return until over a year later when they cross the finish line at the orphanage.
Today Calle Wållgård from The Happy World Tour and Kjell Bergqvist were featured on the morning show, Gomorron Sverige, to talk about what it’s like to travel by bicycle around the globe. Imagine: Calle, Lovisa and Eva are undertaking this incredible journey in order to raise money for our children at the orphanage. It's truly wonderful and so powerful. We are very proud of them. And we will of course be following them throughout the trip.

Will you support the project?
Donate the amount of your choice for every Swedish mile (10 kilometers) the team rides. If they make it all the way, which of course is the goal, your total donation will be your chosen amount x 3,000 Swedish miles. For example, 20 öre per Swedish mile will total 600 SEK, while 50 öre per Swedish mile will total 1,500 SEK, etc. You won’t be asked for your donation until the team reaches the finish line in about 1 year and 4 months, ie., the end of 2017.
