Wheel2Wheel is an independent non-profit organisation created by Morgan Parker to raise awareness and facilitate financial assistance to brilliant yet under-recognised charitable organisations throughout Australasia.
Through its innovative approach of staging entertaining motorcycle expeditions, Wheel2Wheel is able to create exceptional awareness for selected humanitarian causes by weaving them into popular adventure-travel television documentary series. Wheel2Wheel tells the stories of these philanthropic champions and provides the public with objective insight to the key social, environmental, and humanitarian issues facing the region.
The initial Wheel2Wheel adventure set off from Hong Kong on 1 March 2011 and saw Morgan Parker ride 25,000km through 10 countries to Brisbane, Australia. Travelling with a film crew, he visited 10 extensively researched and carefully selected charitable organisations. Each one tackling one of the continents’ most critical issues, doing it superbly but not receiving the systemic attention of the region’s philanthropic community.
The 2012 premiere broadcast of Wheel2Wheel’s first adventure on National Geographic Channel reached over eight million households in 21 countries around the world. Filmed in HD, the television series is visually breathtaking, inspiring and educational. Apart from capturing the awesome humanitarian work being done throughout, our intrepid adventurer also witnessed some of the world’s most extraordinary natural landscapes. The 125 day documented journey takes in operatic mountains, geological wonders, ancient human creations, serpent rivers, stunning beaches, pre-historic rainforests, red deserts, and numerous urban metropolises. Additional broadcasts of Wheel2Wheel’s television series will follow in the coming years.
Wheel2Wheel is entirely self-funded to enable 100% of donations to be passed through directly to its ten selected charitable organisations. Our motorcycle adventures are carbon neutral with Wheel2Wheel off-setting 100% of all emissions created.
Wheel2Wheel is already planning its second adventure and television production …
