Please note: the THC organization website has moved to its own domain and this blog is a collection bin of my own ideas, writings and motorcycle ride reports and doesn’t reflect on official organizational matters. Once the construction of the website is complete, these pages won’t be available on this website any longer.
All great explorers had one thing in mind: to get where no one else has been. And all had one thing in common: to be the first person to do so. When I was old enough to read, I realized to my dismay, that there was not even a single empty spot left on the map.
All countries had been found, both poles had been reached, the highest peaks climbed, and to compound the insult, Armstrong had already walked on the moon! To an ambitious first grader, that was quite a blow. I made a promise to myself to one day explore and discover something new.
Although with time I climbed big mountains, traveled much and saw more, my true discovery came in the form of a dawning comprehension of the struggles that go on every day on every corner of this planet: in particular, the travesty of extreme poverty and malnutrition.
With a desire to make a difference, I sold my worldly possessions and on August 2009, embarked on an around-the-globe journey on my motorcycle. By its end, this expedition will cover over 200 countries, 120° of latitude, 24 time zones, and 6 continents in order to raise awareness and funds for the number one cause of death in the world: hunger.
This journey evolved beyond the scope of my one-man band, and eventually I founded and incorporated the Transcontinental Humanitarian Corp., a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization to bring together those with a similar passion and desire to give a helping hand to ordinary people during times of extraordinary tribulation.
Imagine all the money spent on nuclear weapons and meaningless wars each year, all the embargoes and sanctions imposed upon innocent people – trillions of dollars. If we spent that money feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, not one soul excluded, it would pay for itself many times over. We could explore our globe together, forever in peace. -O. Christopher Sorbi, Founder
