50 States in 50 Weeks

Hello friends! Brittany Swanson here. About seven months ago I had a crazy idea: 50 states in 50 weeks. I have a blog and I take awesome pictures to document my journey. I tried to freelance write or whatever along the way to make money, but that ended up being more time consuming/harder than I originally thought. I couchsurf to keep costs low, but even still my funds are quickly dqindling. I've been on the road of over six months at this point and now I just have to finish. The problem is...I'm running seriously low on funds...

I did some math and if everyone I know likes me enough to donate $5 I'll be set. Just pretend you're buying me a Starbucks frappuccino if that makes it easier for you. You like me enough to buy me a coffee right? That $5 will be like 2 gallons of gas, 70ish miles, and help finish something I started and make my dreams come true. You'll be like a fairy godmother. That sounds nice, doesn't it?

Thank you in advance!

Sincerely,

Brittany

Hey friends!

There are still four days until my birthday...

What do you say? $5 would buy me a cup of coffee, but it'll also get me nearly a quarter tank of gas these days...

I only have 19 states left, please help me finish 50 States in 50 Weeks! Thank you!

Hello friends! I'm in Las Vegas, NV (state twenty-eight)! My birthday is March 30th and I'm starting to run out of money... I'm going to finish the trip either way, but I'd love to not be completely broke when I'm done. So, if you're feeling generous I'd love and really appreciate any support you can provide. Thanks!

Friends!

We made it halfway to my goal and Departure day is only ONE DAY away! I set my sights high, and though we haven't yet gotten there I can assure you I will be departing on Sunday, September 13th, 2015 for Maine to start 50 States in 50 Weeks! Thank you to all of you who have already donated! Your support means more to me than I could EVER tell you! For those of you still on the fence about donating or who haven't shared my plea on your page please do so! Every bit counts, and you never know who might see it and decide to contribute even if you can't.

Get ready to follow along on this awesome adventure!

Thank you!

Love,

B

Dear friends,

We did really well yesterday! We more than doubled the previous contributions! Huzzah! Can we do it again today? Absolutely! Just share the link on your page and see if anyone you know thinks 50 States in 50 Weeks is a cool idea and wants to follow along and chip in $5 or even $1. A little bit from a lot of people will add up really fast.

Thank you!

P.S. The blog should go live tomorrow at some point, so be on the lookout for that update!
Mapping it out!
