I am planning a year journey across the country. I will be riding for charity & teaching yoga for free in prisons, with trauma patients and with terminally ill children. While working endlessly to get locations to partake, I would love to have support and companions along the way! I will be starting in NYC and head to Oregon down through California to LA. Exact route is TBD
I'm starting a GoFundMe to raise money but I don't know how much money to request. I've read to many different articles on those who have cycled across the country and the budget is incredibly different for each. Since, I'm allotting a year of my life, the budget might change due to the fact that I will be documenting this journey to create a documentary and also a coffee table photo book.
Money raised will go to a prison project, childrens institute and a children's organization. I will be accepting no money along the way to teach and will be doing everything volunteer based.
Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.
