WHO I AM
I am an entrepreneur. I am an explorer. I am a philanthropist. I am a storyteller. I am traveling to all 195 countries in the world, and when I'm done, I'll be less than one of 30 people and of that number, 10 women, to accomplish this goal. For me though, it's not about ticking boxes. I am making a difference in the lives of the women, children, families and individuals who I have the privilege to meet. I am advocating on their behalf and sharing their stories to help improve their futures.
THE 195 TRAVEL SHOW
The 195 travel show takes you to all 195 countries in the world. The show conceptually combines the luxury of Cribs and Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous through high-end hotels, the heart of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown through deep connection with culture and locals, and a reality-tv entertainment of having a celebrity guest on each episode. Our show has heart; with our guest, we will also volunteer at impactful philanthropic organizations in the world. We're here to do good and to share stories with you. We will teach women in Afghanistan, who will be future leaders in government, we will work with women entrepreneurs in Rwanda and we will feed 20,000 children in Zimbabwe. And that's just to start.
WHAT YOU RECEIVE
Through our show, The 195, you will have a chance to make a difference through your contribution. We are changing the world, and you are going to be a part of that.

Please note donations will not be used for travel expenses or expenses incurred outside of the US.

$5,000 - Our Post Production Color Correction Editor, who will take our beautiful footage and make it even more beautiful for the big screen
$10,000 - Our Motion Graphics Editor who takes the episode we will create to the next level so that we can share the story with the most people to raise awareness and inspire us all to be citizens of the world.
$25,000 - The cost of our Editor who will take several months to take the beautiful footage we're going to film, and to make it into an episode to share the stories around the world
$50,000 - The cost of our filming crew's salaries while we are on the ground telling stories and teaching, mentoring and inspiring the young people who will make the change in their countries
Disclosure: No raffles, sweepstakes, giveaways, or returns on investment are offered in exchange for any donations made to our GoFundMe campaign. Your donation is about supporting our work to make this world a better place, and to always have our deepest gratitude as we work to share stories, improve lives, promote cultural understanding through travel.
WHAT FUNDS WILL BE USED FOR
To change the world, we need to get the right team together, along with equipment, pre and post production expenses. We have a talented crew of director, camerawoman, producer, writers and the small village that it will take to get our show premier and episodes made. Your contribution will go towards their salaries, pre-and post production costs, editors and sound experts associated with creating the best travel show on television. All of our team is NYC-based, so you're contributing to the talented writers, Executive Producer, camerawoman and post-production team. We have a story to tell, and your generous contributions will make The 195 a reality.
