Fundraiser Campaign – Walking Baja California in Mexico – planting 50.000 trees

Update – We continue walking in Mexico – Baja California

Dear donor, long-time follower, environmentally conscious person, and citizen of our beautiful planet!

After we unfortunately had to cancel our Walk Across America due to great heat and fatal fires in July 2021, we are now walking the Baja California peninsula in Mexico. Started in mid-November 2021, I will explore the extremely fascinating Baja California on foot together with my dog Butch and a pilgrimage cart, drawing attention to climate and species protection.

Along the way I hope to raise $50,000 in support of the environmental charity One Tree Planted.

Why am I doing it?

I have cycled the world for six long years, crossed more than 50 borders, and have been able to see first-hand the damage that we humans have inflicted on our planet.

It’s time to act!

I want to give back all the love and support I have received from strangers while cycling in so many different countries.

I want to repay mother nature for all of the fantastic times I have spent with her so far and do something valuable to help protect our planet and our fragile eco-system along with all creatures living in it for future generations.

One dollar – one tree

I want to help protect endangered species and give them back their unique habitats, because they desperately need protection.

We need more trees to help fight the climate crisis!

For only $1 you can plant a tree.

I chose to fundraise for One Tree Planted because they have the knowledge of where and how to reforest.

Why One Tree Planted?

You can decide where you want to plant your trees. North America, South America, Africa or Asia, it’s up to you.

This NGO is working with locals to give them a future and to make sure that trees will be protected and taken care of.

One Tree Planted was given two well recognized certification seals for quality – so your money will be spent wisely.

I wish you all the best and that you enjoy your life – especially in these difficult times.

Thank you very much for stepping in. Your donation is very much appreciated!

Already, a big thank you for spreading the word, sharing on your channels, donating, cheering, and being a part of this freaking long walk!

With love,

Heike & little Butch

  1. Hi Heike
    I have been following your adventures for a few years now and commented on and ‘liked’ quite a few of your posts. I have done a fair bit of bike packing in the US, Mexico and Canada over the past 4 years. I plan on going to Morocco as soon as we see some consistency in the way we deal with COVID – so there are no surprises. I guess it is going to be around for some time and I cannot sit around waiting for it to end. I have sent you a small donation to use as you see fit and to say thanks for all the information I have found and will use on your own Morocco trip.

    • Hi David, thanks very much for your compliments and thanks very much for appreciating the effort I put into my page.

      And thank you very much for planting so many trees !!!
      I am walking the Baja now and the plan is to keep collecting money for One Tree PLanted.

      I hope you will have a wonderful time in Morocco!

      Merry Xmas, Heike & Butch

  2. I rode Baja Divide in January 2019 went back with my wife and we did the southern loop end December the same no year. Lovely people and landscape. Enjoy your time there Merry Christmas to you and Butch.

  3. Hallo Heike! I just got aware of your journeys around the World reading an old Pilger, that my dad sent me from Germany. I live in Virginia. I will certainly support your efforts, find it great! Thank you, Danke, for caring so much!

    • Hello Angela,

      great to hear from you!
      Big thank you for your very nice words.

      My fundraiser is still up but sadly we are no longer walking. Maybe sometime in the future I will start a new walk….

      Right now we are Tuk-Tuking in Argentina.

      All the best and big thank you for your support!

      Heike and Butch
