David here.. the crazy Czech runner who has run from Prague to London, biked from Prague to Morocco, ran across Jordan mostly for safe drinking water. Because of the pandemic, I lost all my jobs (I worked as a tourguide and speaker to international groups coming to Prague). I've been trying to find other work, which I actually got, but just before I could sign the contract all the stores had to shut down and I was put on hold with no pay ..this was in late December. It's now been over a year without any steady income.. I'm trying to stay positive and creative, but yes, it's been quite stressfful. One bright thing is that I was able to get funding from my alma mater to do speeches to high schools about my charitable journeys and making a difference. I was able to make ends meet with this for a few months, but this arrangement is ending soon, and I am without income again.
Doing these speeches to high schools has been really rewarding for both the high schools and myself. I finally feel like I am making a positive difference in the world. I am doing this crowdsourcing effort to be able to do additional 20 speeches and to pay for our mortgage and living expenses for 2 more months.
I really appreciate your support and let you all stay healthy!
