Two ways you can pitch in:
Let me tell you how we are pulling this off financially and why your help is critical.
First, we were planning and saving for this journey before it launched. Bethany worked multiple jobs for 5 years putting 20%-70% of each paycheck aside. Doing this she saved up almost $15,000.
It sounded like a lot (and it is) but when international flights, administrative costs, and an average of $1 per kilometer per hiker are factored together, this falls well shy of covering needs.
Second, we have a fantastic group of gear partners which helps off-sets the price of gear. Every one of the companies went out on a limb to support two women on an audacious endeavor. They are good people and quality products (trust us, we are the most stringent gear testers out there).
Third, we earn money whenever we can while hiking. Largely this means selling pieces we write. If you have a site or blog and are interested in hiring us as freelance writers or for other content, please reach out.
Primarily, we survive off of support from folks like you giving at your convenience via PayPal or joining us with monthly support on Patreon.
So, if you’re still reading, we’re hoping you are in.
Thank you so much!
This next kilometer is for you.
