Bearded Dragons: Three men grow beards for Charity (on a 10,000 mile drive to Mongolia)

A group of three men called the Bearded Dragons are undertaking a 10,000 mile drive from the UK to Mongolia in support of the charity Go Help and we are delighted to help by lending them an Inmarsat isatPhone Pro.

Go Help work with local communities bearded dragonin Central Asia to improve their access to education and healthcare services. They organize Charity Rallies for adventurous people who are prepared to undertake incredible adventures and raise money for charitable projects in Mongolia and Tajikistan. The Bearded Dragons will be participating in the 10,000 mile Mongolia Charity Rally. They will drive from Central London to Ulaanbaatar in their honorary fourth member 'Bertie the Bus' and their route can be found here.

We have lent the Bearded Dragons an Inmarsat IsatPhone Pro to use on their journey as it offers the ultimate combination of features and performance - including exceptional voice clarity, SMS text messaging and email - over the world's most reliable satellite communications network. One of the Bearded Dragons, Paul Nicholls, had this to say about the IsatPhone Pro that we have lent to the team:

"When deciding to embark on such an unusual trip through some of the most remote parts of Central Asia, our personal safety and security always needed to be a top priority. Crossing through multiple countries and remote areas we couldn't rely on normal mobile phone service, so the satellite phone seemed an obvious choice, giving us (and our loved ones) the reassurance that no matter where we are we'll always be able to get hold of someone in an emergency. "

"Once we'd made the decision to get an IsatPhone Pro, we also found we'd be able to make use of its SMS and built-in Twitter facilities to not only use the phone in emergencies, but also to keep our supporters, sponsors, friends and family updated about our progress as we go."

We wish the Bearded Dragons the very best of luck with their challenge and hope that the IsatPhone Pro is useful to them on their journey.
