Who we are
Our names are Callum wood, Jack Yardley and Alex Sims-Glover - we are three close friends from a small area of the UK, and have been friends for nearly 10 years during our time in secondary school and college. Sadly, we have come to the end of our education, and are being thrust into the world of work and adult life, and are being forced to make decisions on where we want to go in life... Well we have decided. We want to travel. We want to live
Our aim is to raise a sum of £35,000-£35,000 to put towards the gap year of a lifetime. This includes flights, accommodation, a car for the entirety of teh trip, fuel costs and equipment costs. Yes we understand that we are asking for a lot.
A brief overview of the project:
'The State: 48' is a publicly and independly funded film, documenting the gap year of three friends, exploring americas 48 contiguous states over the course of 11 months. the film is planned to be released episodically, each state being its own episode that will highlight the week spent in the state. During our 2-3 days leisure time each week, in each state, we will be visiting major cities, landmarks, and general sight seeing, travelling around the state or spending time with our host families. The remainder of the week will be spent taking part in events (carnivals, fun events depending on the time of year and the state we are in at the time), also helping out with some voluntary roles to benefit those we meet, and the families who house us during our stay in the US If you'd like to ask us more about our trip, we are more than happy to provide you with any information you may need --> [email protected]
