The purpose Of good works isnt to change or save us ;

rather, it's the demonstration of the change within us.

Numinous Expeditions

“Numinous” (adj.) – a strong spiritual quality, filled with a sense of the presence of divinity.

Numinous Expeditions is our way of paying it forward. Inspired by personal experience, change in perspective, and a huge sense of adventure. The journey will take us through 60 countries with the aim of adding diversity to the international stem cell donor registry.

A Diagnosis Turned Into A Journey.

Back in 2017 we were leading a normal lifestyle, our goals and aspirations focused on growing our business, being financially successful, and settling down in our home town – Nelspruit.

Things started changing for us when I got sick, and eventually ended up in hospital without being the least bit prepared for what was about to follow for the next two years, and the remainder of our lives together.

Admitted for one month in a government hospital in Nelspruit, we tried to hold on to our livelihood. Jolandie ran the business, with me directing over the phone. We thought that we would be able to regain control of the situation. My blood levels were extremely low, my energy depleted, and after a series of bone marrow biopsies we soon found out that my bone marrow was failing.

The remainder of 2017 was filled with frequent blood transfusions and frustrating hospital experiences. Eventually we were referred to another medical institute in Pretoria, who treated me for a couple of months. We were sure that things would get better, but off course my condition worsened, and they had no choice but to refer us to the Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town for a peripheral stem cell transplant (formerly known as a bone marrow transplant)…….

Our mission will take us to 60 countries, throughout 3 continents in the hopes of recruiting as many, diverse stem cell donors on the road as possible. In order to do this, we’ll need to live on the road fulltime in our home on wheels, experiencing different traditions, cultures, challenges, and landscapes around the world. We do our best in promoting sustainability and conservation efforts, and open our minds to new solutions every day. We hope to share compassion, and inspire others to do the same for the planet and people around them.

Previously registered as an NPC on the “Companies and Intellectual Properties Commission” under the registration number: 2017/500620/08 as “Numex” (Non-Profit Company) under South African law. We later decided to close our registration as an NPO as annual accounting obligations for us to operate an NPO was just too expensive and exceeded the amount of donations we received in a year. If you choose to assist us in our mission, we would however be more than happy to share comprehensive evidence of how donated funds are spent.

Online products are sold under Earthling SA (Pty) Ltd.

In the case that we are running a project at a given time, all funds donated towards a particular project, is allocated solely to that project. In the case that we receive more funds than what was needed, it is transferred over to our Savings Pocket where it can be saved for the next project.

Monthly contributions help us save up for annual costs such as the trucks licensing fees (R8500), carnet de passage and other cross border costs, maintenance on the vehicle, and setting up stem cell recruitment drives wherever we go.

Earthling SA online shop is focused on everyday sustainable solutions. We offer products to the public that aim to better conserve the environment, is all natural and compete with otherwise eco-harming products. All products are cruelty free and help promote eco-conscious living.

We do local markets and festivals over weekends and run an online shop in order to support our life on the road.

It all depends on the project and location, but we’ll always try to use all of the available resources that are at our disposal and appreciate the help of volunteers and donated services.

Yes! Please contact us directly should you be able to donate any supplies or materials needed for a specific project.

Our main priority is to recruit and register possible blood stem cell donors to the international bone marrow registry for persons undergoing transplants, but if ever we find ourselves in the position to do another community, animal, or environmental project, we hope to assist to our full capabilities.

A project remains on our page until our supplies- or fundraising goals are met.

Yes, absolutely!

If you would like to get involved as a volunteer, service provider, or just to give advice or ideas – you are welcome to contact us directly. As we plan to travel to rural isolated areas on this earth, you might not be able to get as involved as you’d like to be, but would be of great help if you’d share our projects, spread awareness to our cause, and simply by donating towards our projects.
