Hi Adventure Philanthropists!

We did it! After 31 days of fundraising, y’all donated $6,773, helping me exceed my Kickstarter goal by 12% - YAHOO! Thank you all so much for your support and kind words!

As if exceeding the Kickstarter goal wasn’t enough – we’re celebrating another piece of fantastic news! Earlier this month, I learned I’ve been nominated for 2013 National Geographic Traveler of the Year award!

Pinch me, ‘cause I can’t think of how much better it can get!

And now for our articles this week:

Guest Post: Kickstarter Honor Roll of Donors *Video*

From my friend Laura, who I originally met in South Africa and is now living in Trinidad, to my friend Annie, who I met in Bolivia and now lives in Cambodia, to my Irish lassies Brid & Paula, who I met in Ethiopia – the global support is unbelievable!  Here’s a video of my deepest thanks:

Adventure Philanthropist Funding Screen FPFavorite:  Play Date in Ethiopia  

Ethiopia’s children are wonderful — Full of smiles and energy and laughter! During my 3 weeks in Ethiopia, I was lucky enough to spend time with several groups of children: at an orphanage, at a childcare center for children with HIV / AIDS, and during an afternoon outing on an island in the middle of Lake Tana. Take a peek at all the fun I had:

While much of the time I was traveling rough, once a year I’d meet up with my mom Sam and we’d enjoy a bit of luxury travel together. One of these outings was a week-long sail on the largest clipper ship in the world along Italy’s beautiful Amalfi Coast. This is the majestic ship!

So super psyched to be spending the summer in San Francisco with my friends! Having a great time being back in the States before I head out on the road again in 2014... Stay tuned to find out where I’m headed at the end of the year!

See you on the road!
