Abandon the Cube - The News
"Where are they now?" -- In the United States, traveling around looking for a cool place to settle. Got an idea for us? Send us a note! You can reach us on the Contact page.
ATC Mission Statement:
Abandon the Cube is... dedicated to motivating and encouraging people to travel, learn about the world's history, write and experience more of life. Humans were not meant to be office creatures, but outdoors men and women with dirt under their nails. We hope everyone can create their chance to Abandon the Cube and find out what life can be.
ATC is also a firm believer in volunteer work. They are currently raising money to sponsor Mercy Mongolia. You can donate to this charity through the ATC website by clicking on the FirstGiving tab to the left.
