We're driving across the Kalahari Desert to get there. Complete with extra fuel, satellite phone, incontinence pants and a spare set of brass balls.
We're going to be inspired, open our eyes, and drink in the world around us. But mostly we'll be raising funds to protect the ever dwindling elephant population. If you have ever been to Africa and seen African elephants in their native environment you will understand. If you haven't, well...come join us.
This Quinn + Tonik is a special sponsorship edition.
So stretch those crocodile arms, shake the moths out of that handmade DQ wallet, and get the Amex out. Of course, as always, there's a cocktail at the bottom while you consider the options.
win a bespoke suit: elephant charge raffle $100
Yes you read that right. One hundred dollars. And a dream.
Every year at the Elephant Charge the biggest winner is always a debate. Is it the team that won the rally? Or the team that raised the most money for the cause?
We've never won either. Yet. But we can work on that.
So this year we have something special for you. Buy a ticket. Win a bespoke suit.
There are several options. All will be amazing, full DQ bespoke with all the bells and whistles. Hell, DQ will even throw in lunch at Balthazar and a bottle of something tasty.
But you have to be in it to win it.
So there you are. Get on it. As we may never do this again.
Up to 100 tickets will be sold for each raffle. Provided we sell 100 tickets for the raffle in question one name will be drawn for each raffle at random to win the bespoke suit. If for any reason we do not sell 100 tickets for each individual raffle the tickets from the raffles with insufficient participants will be combined, and provided there are at least 100 tickets in total a ticket will be drawn to win, and the winner will have a choice of cloths. If we do not sell 100 tickets each ticket will convert into a gift certificate for $100 valid for three months.
sponsor placement: rally team sponsors
We are constantly plagued with social media influencers asking us for freebies. We have 34k followers. But we are not asking you to stick your logo on our car for the exposure. We are asking you to do it for a cause, and idea. And as we may remember, ideas are bulletproof. So please plaster our car with your corporate logos, personal mantras, or whatever else you fancy. But lets make sure we run out of slots!

We've gone to great lengths to make this stuff the dogs danglers. So get yourself a package of joy, or gift one to someone else.
Includes team tee-shirt, cap with 3D logo, and stickers.

We can't not do this. It is simply medicine for a trip such as this. Prophylactic so to speak. Anti-malarial.
