Hi Adventure Philanthropists!
THE BOOK IS FINISHED!!!!! WHOOOOOOO HOOOOOOO! I have this weekend to “tidy up a few bits” but it’s off to my editor Susan in London on Monday for her expert advice and 5-6 weeks of full-on editorial toughness!
With the book on its way to being published, I’m now turning my full attention to my next adventure: Erin’s Bodacious Book Tour: 2013-2014:
$10,000 in donations, 28 cities, 14 months, 3 countries, and 1 goal:
To promote a living and giving lifestyle—
one centered on giving back, continually learning, and pushing personal boundaries.
What makes this book tour different? Not only am I sharing my stories, I’m also sharing the profits! Each stop on the book tour will be paired with a nonprofit organization that will share in the profits earned from book sales at that venue.
Want to be involved in the fun? Check out this week’s article for all the details. Would love to have you join me on this joy ride!
As I launch my book tour, I’m seeking Ambassadors in each of the 28 cities I’m hoping to visit. Ambassadors are locals that are willing to act as virtual hosts for their hometowns, suggesting speaking venues, providing introductions to local nonprofit organizations, and helping me engage local media.
Tempted? Write me at Erin@GoErinGo.com. Special thanks to Rick in Las Vegas, Faruq in Atlanta, and Cherie in Honolulu for already stepping up!

Exploring Namibia’s desert was undeniably one of my favorite parts of my African adventure! Here’s why roaming the Namib desert should be on your destination list…
Photo of the Week: Indian Women Chopping Wood
Indian society is incredibly hierarchical, with everyone ranked according to caste, class, wealth, and power. On this uneven playing field, Indian women face even greater barriers, especially when it comes to employment opportunities. It’s estimated that nearly 90% of all Indian women work in the informal sector: plowing fields, harvesting crops, and gathering wood. These two women were doing manual labor in the hot sun as I guiltily drove by in my air-conditioned SUV.
