Hitchhiking Web Series Documentary
You guys know I’m all about helping others out in need or who have a cool or unique Idea so today I want to introduce you to Woncho (sounds like Poncho). Back at my last company before the one I work out now (did I tell you guys I got ANOTHER new job in March??) one of my co-workers (who is now a good friend) was telling me about another person from Dallas she met and befriended out in California a year or two ago. His name is Woncho and he had hitchhicked from Dallas to Cali on absolutely little to no money. Woncho started a blog about his tales of hitchhiking. So I started following his blog and thought it was interesting.
Sometimes I fantasize would life would have been like if I took a year off before going to my university. So I read about Woncho’s adventures and live vicariously through him.
Currently Woncho has a Kickstarter campaign out. He started the crowd funding campaign because he needs money to buy equipment needed for the web series documentary that he wants to film. He wants to educate the public about the life of hitchhiking. Even though, as a woman, I will probably not hitchhike I find this super interesting and I feel like this could be a fun project.
Woncho only needs $2200 for this mission. At the time of this post he’s at $1400. While that’s a great number he’s at 63% of fulfillment he has ONLY SEVEN DAYS LEFT to fund this campaign.
How does Kickstarter work?
Kickstarter is a crowd funding website where you can post your ideas that you need funded to your peers. You create a short video and write a post about why you need this money and how this project will affect not only you, but the people around you. In order to get people to help out incentives are created for each donation amount. If the campaign is funded then whatever amount that you contributed that prize will be given to you upon completion of the project. However, if time runs out and the person doesn’t raise the amount of money needed for the project then no money goes to them. Basically you don’t lose out if the person does not get enough money to help fund the project.
I think this is a unique project that deserves to be funded… and really $2200 for a documentary campaign isn’t unreasonable. If you need to know EXCATLY what he will be doing with the money please check out his Kickstarter campaign where he breaks everything down in detail.
Even if you can’t donate please share this campaign on your blogs or Facebook pages. With more exposure he might be able to hit that $2200 mark in the next seven days!
