New:  Kickstarter FAQs

Since I’ve launched this campaign, I’ve had a number of questions about my life, my travels, volunteering abroad and how to participate in the campaign. Questions like:

  • Why are you writing this book?
  • Are you a trust fund baby, Erin?
  • What’s so special about volunteering abroad?
  • Can you tell me more about your travels?

I’m also getting questions about the payment process, including;

  • When is my credit card charged? June 17.
  • Can I give in my local currency? Yes!
  • Can I increase my pledge?  Yes! 

GeG.worldmap-JpegFavorite:  House-Proud Poverty 

It is estimated that 318 million people live in extreme poverty, defined as living on less than $1.25 a day. In 2001, the number of “extremely poor” nations was listed at 39 countries. Unfortunately, the poverty rate in sub-Saharan Africa is increasing. Read more about the levels of poverty I saw on the ground in Africa:

Photo of the Week:  Waterfall in Nusa Tenggara Islands, Indonesia

I snapped this photo while sailing around the Nusa Tenggara islands in southeast Indonesia. I was on a 5-day boat trip to see the Komodo dragons. On the sail back, we stopped at the island of Sumbawa. Here we spent the afternoon playing in a waterfall with the local kids. This was the swing rope we all took turns on = fun!
