Last year I did a 48 state road trip to raise awareness to homeless issues.
It was a amazing trip that you can read about here.
One of the things I learned on my trip is that a lot of people hurting are afraid. They are afraid about how people will judge them even if its not their fault. I was amazed about all the letters I got from people who felt alone that needed to hear they were not the only ones hurting.
With everyone hurting these these days I decided to do another one. So I contacted United Way. With that the 48 State Capital Road Trip on behalf of The Greater Twin Cities United Way was born.
While last year it was a 9068 mile 48 trip, this one will be just under 15,000 State Capital road trip. Using the website, facebook, myspace and twitter people will be able to track and follow me.
Last years trip I fully funded using my own money and my own car. This time I am hoping to find some sponsors. Hoping to find a dealership that could use some good PR and let me use a loaner car. Also looking for sponsors to come up with the $3000 to pull the trip off.
Wish me luck. No date yet, hopefully a few weeks from now.
feel free to write with any suggestions
