Good day, Goeie dag, Bon Jour, Ni Hao, Buenos Días and Hallo to all friends and travellers around the world.
This is our little family. Myself Julie with an awesome 14 year old daughter Julisa and our 2 beloved pets, Blaze the Australian Shepard and Jessie border collie. Our dream and goal is to travel with our dogs by campervan or as other know, by RV in the USA. We are in the process to start a YouTube channel, Facebook page and Instagram for people to follow our journey through the process. You will see everything we do and how the processes work to make our dream come true. Our main aim is to have a successful YouTube channel to generate most of our income from there. As soon as we go viral we will share links to all our platforms.
Many people will say, save up money. But this is a huge undertaking and not always possible to do it on your own. At first I was hesitant to start crowdfunding. Some people said NO, its begging. Others said, go for it you have nothing to loose.
Our main goal is to show people how the process works to start such a monumental task. From setting up social media accounts, getting paid through social media (if its possible) up to how the process work to take our dogs with. How much did we spend until the day we get on a plane? If we reach our dream, we want to go viral on our trip for everyone to see and enjoy. Let's say its going to be our own little reality channel. Our aim is to do start our travels in 12 months. After doing some research we will need at least $15K to get there and buy a cheap RV. We will only be able do this if we can get a revenue of at least $2000 per month through our social media income. I am sure you are saying to yourself by now we are BAT Cheese CRAZY. But as they say: We are creators of our own destiny.
By doing this we have nothing to loose. To start the whole process does not cost anything. Just good internet and friends helping. And when I say by friends helping we have managed the following thus far. Free photoshoot, free graphic designer, free hair sessions for photos. Although we do not believe in asking for free stuff in general, we realized if we want to pursue our dream we have to ask.
We have decided that all money raised through donations, we will donate 10% back to charities of our choice. Currently we will give donations to animal shelters in South Africa. The day we start our journey in the USA we will gladly donate to charities on our journey. Yes, we like paying it forward. Probably one reason we will never get rich, lol!
Thank you for your time reading our dream. "A dream is a wish your heart makes".
Keep an eye out for our YouTube Channel to be aired in November 2020.
