Win Love Cross Country Bike Ride
On August 22nd, Andrew, Matthew, and Jesse will be leaving Cape Flattery Trail, Washington on a two and a half month 4,267 (give or take) mile bicycle ride to Virginia Beach, Virginia. We'll be riding through Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and many other areas affected by human trafficking. We'll be gathering stories from justice advocates, survivors,family members, friends, and even those who have profited from the sale of others.
We believe most people do care and want to do something about the issue of human trafficking. Sometimes, we are held back from action. Maybe we don't have the knowledge. Maybe we haven't been given the opportunity. Other times our inspiration is quenched by the enormous negativity of the problem.
Our goal is to promote awareness by creating a raw documentary style film of the life changing stories we gather, supplemented with our personal experience of life on a bicycle. Through these stories of victory we can increase our knowledge, find the opportunity, and gain the inspiration needed for action.
We choose to ride because when we are on our bikes, we feel alive. And without the insulation of regular comfort, or the fast pace of motorized life, we have an opportunity to see and feel the different cultures of the United States and the effects of human trafficking on a unique and more personal level.

$3,000 may not seem like enough to support three guys for three months of living off our bikes-- that's the truth. Right now we have enough to survive, and we need your support for this journey to have the best possible outcome. Our fundraising goal is to have what we need for film production, the flexibility to pay for interviews, help others along the way, and cover any emergencies we may encounter (i.e. shredded tires, bent wheels, or

Loving all the donators' energy and enthusiasm!
This sounds fantastic! I'm a pedal-powered Idahoan, so if you come this way it would be great to ride a bit with you! Best of luck (and willpower, good weather, and strength) heading your way.
