"If you are really passionate about doing this trip of a lifetime, then you have to go all out and build a moment. Reach out to your friends, family and your social networks and get them to be associated with the initiative by helping sponsor your trip. For if they can’t make it, you can for them"
We do understand that some people might not have the financial resources to self fund for the expeditions. But we have met some amazing travelers and changemakers on our expeditions who raised the expedition fees for themselves by reaching out within their networks.
We have had participants who got their expedition fee funded by the local governments, we have had people who got funded by corporate CSR, and some who just went out on crowdfunding platforms and reached to their social networks and raised the money in a short span of 5 days.
Most of us think that crowdfunding is not an option, but we have seen almost 80% of our participants who could not have self funded the expedition join us because they used the crowdfunding platforms.
