A time is coming for me to make a decision about the next stage of my journey. My goal is to make this trip last one year and complete a thorough, well documented, circle around the United States before returning home in October 2012. Up until this point I have primarily spent my own money to fund this trip and would gladly continue to do that if my financial situation was strong enough to make it to October. It is enough of a reward just to get to experience our great country in this fashion. It truly makes me proud to share this adventure with others. I have had folks help me along the way and I appreciate their generosity to the fullest. Some folks have been anonymous and some are now true friends. This page is for ideas. I’m asking for advice from anyone who has received sponsorship for a project before or knows the steps to achieve it. Some questions I need help answering are –
Does anyone know of a company that would help me?
Does a website exist that would allow me to apply for sponsorship?
Can someone connect me with a known marketing director that would be willing to help?
What I can give in return is exposure through my writing, pictures, and word of mouth as I meet new people daily. Without sponsorship or stopping for a job to gain funds the journey cannot continue much longer. I genuinely enjoy creating a new post everyday and hope that I don’t have to stop until the goal is completed. Thank you for any suggestions.
