We are so excited to have received the Young Explorers grant from National Geographic. However, we still have several thousand dollars to raise. Over the next month, we’ll be gathering as much support as possible in the form of equipment donations, sponsorships, and setting dates for post-expedition presentations. At the end of August we’ll be launching a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter, which will last for 30 days. By October we hope to have raised enough money — through the Young Explorers grant, sponsorships, equipment donations, presentations, and Kickstarter — to make this project the best it can be.
If you have any creative ideas for how we can find money, or if you know of anyone who would be interested in having us give a presentation, please let us know! We’ll keep you posted on everything.
