Well- I’ve done it. Everything I own is packed away. I’ve left a job I absolutely love and people I adore and admire and love. My car is loaded and I’ve hit the road. It is at once exhilarating and frightening. Read more
NEW LAUNCH- expires Sep 20!
There are many ways that I will work to fund this journey of volunteerism. Instead of doing a traditional “crowdfunding” campaign (where I ask you for money in exchange for a token “thank-you”) – I’ve decided to try Teespring. The idea is you buy a shirt, and any “profit” goes directly to fund this “Change for Miles” journey to perform volunteer work in every state. It’s like….. crowdfundshopping. Read more

In September 2014 I will embark on a journey to perform volunteer work in all 50 states. Because this isn’t organized through any type of group, I can choose which organizations and events where I will donate my time. My goal is to have many varied experiences, and to help as many different non-profits as I can.
Along the way I will work when I can to support this journey. If you would like to support me in my efforts, I will also have items for sale on this site. Every penny will go towards making this dream a reality – and I thank you in advance. You rock!
