Me again. So in talking to coworkers about my planned trip (~2000 miles around the UK) one of them suggested I should try to get sponsored or ride for charity. So this got me thinking - I am riding in memory of my dad who passed away in November, from (in a nutshell) heart problems. My family certainly has a history of heart health issues. My dad also wanted to donate his organs to science (but could not, having lived in the UK during Mad Cow disease period - we live in the US now and for some reason are not allowed to donate blood etc). Thats potential for two causes there - Organ Donation and Heart Health.
However, I have no idea how going about that sort of thing would work. Does all the money go to the Charity/Organization? How do I get 'sponsored' by them? I haven't really seen any threads on here discussing this subject matter, and the Touring forum might not be the best place for it - pointers in the right direction would help!
