A Short Summary
In December, I plan to unicycle from Baltimore, MD to St.Louis, MO, making several stops along the way. That's about 1000 miles. I'm a long distance unicyclist with a desire to turn my talent into good! I've been unicycling for more than 13 years, and by now, riding up to 100 miles in a day is something very feasible for me!
Believe or not, this trip is a smaller testpiece for a humongous, world record-breaking trip I will be taking to South America next year! That fundraiser will be coming later, after this (hopefully) successful trip.

What I Need & What You Get
I need your contributions! Only $5 gets you a hand-designed drink coaster designed by me! Only $10 gets you a super cool sticker of the same design. I really appreciate your generosity, EVEN if I've already reached my goal! I've set my goal to quite a bit lower than it should be, so as to make it more reachable. 75% of all donations will go directly to these charities:
**I'll also be doing tshirts (see "Wearin' it out" perk), but I need a minimum order, so please select that perk!!
Arts Charity for U.S. Children: http://dreamingzebra.org/
International Child Art Foundation: http://www.icaf.org/
Sustainable Farming in Central America: http://www.sustainableharvest.org/
International Sustainabilty/Conservation: http://www.greenpeace.org/international/en/
*I will be posting reciepts for my total donations to these 4 organizations after both the ride and the fundraiser are complete!*
To make the trip a success, and therefore grow even more support for the causes, 25% will go to support costs, including trip costs and perks for donors.
The clichés are true - children are the future. And we should also strive to preserve this earth for those same children! These go hand in hand. As an artist, I believe that harnessing and developing creativity in kids is important. This carries over positively into their education and life in general. We should also establish sustainable practices in the poorest regions of the earth, as well as promote responsible stewardship.
