QUESTION ROUND #1
This is as good a time as any to answer some questions that have come up.
1. "How can I contribute to your Tour?"
Follow us on this blog, send us emails, follow Karla on Facebook!
But some people have asked specifically about money contributions. While we are certainly trying to raise corporate funds and awareness for our quest we have not established any type of official or technical mechanism for funding by individuals. To say this clearly: we are not a 501(c)3 organization and we have not solicited funds from individuals. We have not set up a gofundme page nor have we set up a paypal account. (Not that those things might not happen--we just haven't gone there yet.) For people, or organizations, who are interested in contributing we recommend you drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to hear from you!
2. "Do you have a schedule of the parks you plan on visiting?"
Yes, we do. We have not published that schedule yet but we do have targets set up for at least the next 2 years. All dates more than 3-4 months out are flexible. In fact, the order of some of the parks may change (based on weather, events, park calendars, etc.) But for the most part we have a pretty good sense of what we plan on doing for the next year at least. We plans on posting notices 2-3 months in advance on this blog.
3. "How are you doing this? Where are you finding the time and money?"
That requires a longer answer than we have time for here. Suffice it to say: we are finding the time and money. This is a project of need and passion. The parks should be celebrated. We are finding ways and days to make it happen--using our own funds. While we would love to consider sponsorship the project still needs to be done--and we are loving doing it!
