Hey! My Name is Jorge Sepulveda, originally from Santiago de Chile.
One day I sold and gave away almost all of my stuff, went to the side of the road and started Hitchhiking with no plans, time limit or destination! Now it's been more than 3 years , some 30+ countries, millions of smiles and hundreds of friends all around the globe! :)
I have come to appreciate and enjoy living in a very simple and minimalistic way using the least resources I can and in the most sustainable way possible. Also I'm very interested in Meditation and spend much of my time on silent retreats, forest monasteries or volunteering in meditation centers. I have also done voluntary work in farms and communities, and with children.
All of this have been possible just out of generosity of many people, either with a meal, a lift, a place to sleep, a piece of clothing or medicines. Material or inmaterial I've been truly blessed and amazed by the generosity and kindness that the human heart is capable of!
What I'm using the funds for:
I only use money for:
-Transport (whenever hitchhiking is nonviable or I have time restrictions)
-Lodging (It's VERY rare for me to spend money on this, usually I couchsurf or meet people who offers me a place)
-Clothing (whenever I cannot find discarded stuff or anyone's donation)
On average I don't spend more than $150USD a month, and sometimes I don't even touch money for some periods!. So if I meet my Fundraising Goal I'll be able to keep going for another year or more!
By your support I'll be able to keep learning the art of living, to give back to others and keep opening and freeing my mind and heart, hopefully inspiring others along the way :)
