Wow. I don’t quite know where to begin. July has been (to say the least) an amazing month. In less than three weeks we raised $6,000 for the garbage patch voyage. And by we I mean YOU. Over one hundred people donated to make this story possible and I just want to say thank you.
This story is something I’ve become very passionate about and I am thrilled to be able to cover it. In the last month I’ve been keeping myself busy getting ready for the trip.
Since last week I started a scuba class, bought underwater housing for my camera and have started a new twitter account devoted to trash and the environment (twitter.com/thegarbagegirl). I’ll continue to prepare for the trip as the weeks go by.
If you have suggestions feel free to add them on the Spot.us page or the newly created Facebook cause. You can also tell anyone who has asked that they can still donate via the Facebook page. We might be able to raise the full $10,000—very exciting!
Anyway, the real reason for this post is simply to say thank you. Thank you for investing in me and taking an interest in the garbage patch and for supporting entrepreneurial journalism through Spot.us. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I couldn’t do it without you.
