Help me archive world landmarks

Hi, I'm Richard the founder of Go Virtual UK.

There are thousands of islands around the world that won't exist in 80 years. As sea levels continue to rise they are consuming them on a monthly basis. One of the most well-known areas being The Maldives.

200 idolised islands, gone.

We can't save the islands, but we at Go Virtual UK can digitally archive them by creating virtual tours of them and keeping them on Google Street View, forever.

These will be archived online so that generations hundreds of years from now can virtually interact with these lost places in ways we couldn't for places such as Alcatraz or Pompeii.

At Go Virtual UK we create Street View tours for clients as a way of attracting new customers.
Since 2018 we have generated over £9 million in trade opportunities.

Furthermore, I have been one of Google's genuine Street View photographers since 2014, contracted to create and update the official Street View images on Google Maps.


I DON'T want to hit targets needed to fund a couple of expensive trips around the world.

Instead, I need your help funding Go Virtual UK's marketing on home soil first so I can reach out to more businesses across the UK.
We operate on subscriptions, so for every business we help we are also earning a monthly income. The more businesses we serve, the more we'll accumulate per month / year to fund our own tours.

As a reward to you, it'll be the companies that will fund the tours, and we'll archive areas of the world destined to be swept from existence.

If we start landing a large amount of supporters we will mention you on a thank you page.

Thank you for reading my pitch.
