Help support the This is America Too project

In 2016, after finishing a master's in history, I decided to embark on an ambitious and unconventional project, to explore and give a voice to small-town America. With no backing or support, I set out to spend a week in one rural community in every state across the country. My goal is to capture and share each community through photos, its history, and the stories of those who live in them. Over the last five years I have visited towns in 25 of 50 states and have spent countless hours editing, writing, and providing a window into each location through the ad-free website thisisamericatoo.com.

The ultimate goal of the project is to combine the collected content into a book and podcast series, but one of my biggest hurdles has been funding. Since I want to keep the project free of any corporate influence, I am relying on my personal earnings and help from supporters like you. The pace of the project has suffered due to the lack of funding, but through the assistance of people like yourself, I will be able to finish the last 25 towns and move on to the next phase. Any help is appreciated, even just sharing this with others. Thanks in advance for your support, now let's go explore this beautiful country.
