The Project will benefit the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America St Louis chapter. I developed an allergy to cats late in my 20's that started with small nuisance symptoms, runny nose, dry eyes, etc. and evolved into asthma. Luckily for me I can stay away from cats and be symptom free. There was a time however when my living situation forced me to live in a house that had a cat so I know what having frequent and ongoing asthma attacks is like. It seems like a no brainer to try and help others that are going through what I went through, but aren't lucky enough to remove the cause of their symptoms.
To donate to this cause please visit my fundraising page on Crowdrise.com. I hope that through the course of the project I will be able to raise $100,000 or more. I have a few ideas already for some journeys that will be pretty interesting to say the least. Since I am not travelling as far as Dave I have more of a selection of vehicles to choose from. Expedition 1000 may never involve a pogo stick, but the 100+project could incorporate one someday!
Stay informed on everything I am planning by following this blog. You could also follow me on twitter @Trail_and_Error for Live tweets from the road, trail, water or where ever these journeys take me!
