Just a little something I found at nogoodforme:
You know the sort of person who has bags of drive and ambition, and the kind of brilliant mind that can see those goals achieved? Emily Richmond is one such person. She has dream, drive- and a nifty little itinerary that'll spell out her big picture for you.
circumnavigating the world by boat: 24,000 miles in 24 months.
EXPLORE remote towns in far-away lands.
CONNECT with people from various cultures. interact, document, give.
CONSERVE energy by utilizing alternatives like wind and solar power. research and promote developing initiatives in sustainability around the world.
Pretty cool, huh? The problem is, whilst Emily is brimming with determination and drive, she's lacking in funds. So, in order to seek funds, she's started a Kickstarter website, where you can pledge as little as $1 to help give her dream a chance. If you pledge before 31 August, you'll be helping someone with the ambition we sometimes all lack in our own lives achieve her dream- and that's a pretty awesome thing to do be doing. Plus, if you give her a dollar, you get your signature on her sailboat. If you're interested, watch the video below to find out more, and then head to her website- and pledge away to your heart's content.
