First of all, let me say thank you for even being curious as to how and why you could support me financially. As someone who has never been around “money” in the colloquial sense, I understand the gravity of what it means to part with hard-earned cash, whatever the reason.
What will my money support you in, exactly?
The short version is: being a travel vlogger/blogger has been a dream of mine for years upon years.
The longer version is: I am unable to work, as I am currently a full-time carer for a disabled family member for the immediate future. Nothing lasts forever, and I believe in planning ahead for when I no longer have anyone to care for or when someone else takes over and I find myself not only jobless, but also homeless (since I am a live-in carer) and in need of a life plan. I figured, why not make that plan my life’s dream? Is that so crazy?
Unfortunately being a carer means that saving the meagre £60 a week the government gives me for my troubles is borderline impossible what with certain bills and food to pay for. Had I a job I probably wouldn’t even have the PayPal link to begin with, but since crowdfunding has proved to work for so many, I figured I would give it a go.
So, More Specifically, Where Will the Money Go?
In an attempt to be as transparent as possible, I am going to list all of the things that your generous donations or Patreon (when it starts) will go towards:
- Healthy food to help me maintain health and lose excess weight (it’s so expensive, ugh)
- A camper van plus the means to convert it
- The vehicle costs as I travel in general
- Passport and any VISA costs required
- General food and sustenance costs
- Camera and computer equipment for editing on-the-road
At some point I may start a Patreon, where I can give back rewards, but for now this is all I have. If you do choose to support me – thank you from the very bottom of my heart. I truly appreciate it.
