What is Cash & Rocket

Cash & Rocket was founded by Julie Brangstrup in 2011 with a vision of creating a united community of like-minded, powerful women whose common goal is to strive for equality through education.

Each year, 80 international women drive in 40 red cars to create a vision of strength and solidarity among women. Their mission each year is to  raise money for charities focusing on changing the world by providing safety and education to women and children in need. The cars are red, the women are dressed as a team and operate as a strong unit throughout the 4 day tour. During the tour we attend various fundraising events and press calls. We eat, sleep, dance and drive together. The feeling of solidarity and support that we create among our drivers is something that is indescribable and has built lifelong bonds.

It is our unorthodox and attention-grabbing approach that has resulted in worldwide media coverage and over 5.35 million pounds raised to date.

Each year, we seek new talented, strong, influential and resilient women who are leaders in business, politics, fashion, arts and philanthropy to join us. Many of us are mothers and all of us are daughters. We are united by a belief that women working together are a powerful force for awareness and change.

The Cash & Rocket Car Tour is an all encompassing 4 day event. Not only do we drive each day between metropolitan cities, we also attend events at every pit stop to raise money for our charities. We also host daily press calls to raise awareness and meet with sponsors and supporters along the way. While driving, the women work hard to individually raise money through their own network, to reach a target of funds directly donated to our chosen charities.
