Abandoning the cube doesn't mean abandoning responsibility. We take our freedom from the office seriously, and do what we can to help others who are not as fortunate as ourselves. We fully encourage international and national charity work, and getting active in your community or abroad is a great way to learn more about the world and, of course, about yourself.

Teaching Abroad. In 2006 Abandon the Cube arrived in China to teach English. Teaching is a great way to gain international experience, learn about a new place while making enough money to live like a local, and to get away from the world you already know in exchange for a world you'll come to love. Abandon the Cube learned a great deal about the world through teaching, proving the old saying true that through teaching, the teacher learns more than the students. Learn more on the resources page.


Habitat for Humanity. In 2009 we got involved with Habitat for Humanity, a great organization doing amazing things for people. We learned a great deal about the organization and what it means to really get your hands dirty helping someone in need. Read more about Habitat for Humanity and Abandon the Cube's experiences giving a helping hand, or learn how you can help make someone's dream of owning a home come true.

Habitat for Humanity ATC

Mongol Rally. In 2010 Abandon the Cube took on the Mongol Rally, covering 10,000 miles in an ill-suited car across 15 countries. The adventure of a lifetime was also a fundraising event raising much-needed cash for Mercy-Corps Mongolia, a charity designed to help herders and families across the Steppe.
