Wow...only 6 more days until I hit the road!
The bike is here (shipped from Brazil), the gear & clothes all stashed in waterproof dry bags, dehydrated food, protein mix, and electrolyte mixes all vacuum sealed...it's on! If you haven't donated yet, take note: I will be riding for 45-50 days, so you still have time! My overall goal is $10,000...every penny is going to the organizations that I've chosen who work with human trafficking victims. Follow along! http://tr4f.wordpress.com

Dear friends, family, and those that happen to stumble across my fundraising page:


This coming year, I will be undertaking a project that will aid victims of human trafficking, and I would like to ask your help to accomplish it!

I will be riding a bamboo recumbent bicycle 5,000 miles across the United States, averaging over 100 miles a day, taking just two months to do so. Along the way, I will be giving multimedia presentations at universities, organizations, high schools and churches on the topic of human trafficking and what people can do to help. 

I have a website that I have set up where folks can learn about the ride, watch the preparation, and then follow the ride in its entirety once it begins. It is also where anyone who would like to donate to the organizations that I'm riding for may give. 

I also have had a lot of people who want to donate, but have asked, "How do we donate to YOU? So you can afford the effort?"

That's where this  site comes in... for those of you who would like to donate to the trip itself. Your donations will help make this trip possible, much like giving to a missionary going on a mission trip. Anything over the planned amount will go towards the human trafficking aid organizations I am riding for.

Your donations, big or small, will be GREATLY appreciated, and help make it a reality!

ALSO:
I will be adding a special bonus for anyone who donates $50 or more:

I will have approximately 10-15 scheduled stops along the way where I give a presentation on human trafficking. 

---> For anyone that donates $50 or more, they can send me a shirt of their choice that I will wear during a presentation! (*disclaimer: the shirt has to at least fit, and be appropriate in it's message/images. I had to clarify that, because I know my friends and family!). 

The shirt can be beautiful. Or ugly. Dull. Or colorful. Heck, it could be so colorful it could look like a Llama just threw up a bag of Skittles! It's up to you! It could have a slogan on it, or it could be your old ugly gym shirt from high school. I'm going to leave all that up to you! I will hereby call you "The Shirt Donators Who Exist to Cause Me Great Humiliation," or just "The Shirt Donators" for short.

Anyone who donates $50 will receive a 5x7 photograph of their choice from the trip. I will be taking photos along the way, and will have a good selection to choose from at the completion of the trip. 

More reward options for donating in the "Reward Levels" section at the top of the page, underneath my big face, check them out!

Thanks for stopping by and donating, and following me on this effort to help victims of human trafficking!

Blessings,

Dug

I think you'll have enough to worry about (not knocking your teeth out) without worrying about what t-shirt I want you to wear!
