Thanks so much for supporting this project! I’m trying to raise $30,000 from the public to cover just a portion of the walk and film. For the rest of the costs, I have received fiscal sponsorship and will be applying to grants and looking for larger private donations.
Your gift will be used for:
The walk ($20,000 already Successfully Raised!):
Route planning and scouting (creating a map of the trail, scouting sections of the walk, asking private landowners to walk on their land, asking Indigenous tribes to walk on their ancestral land, etc)
Logistics planning (planning meals, food and water drops, identifying emergency protocols and emergency contacts along the route, etc).
Gear needed (renting GPS devices for safety and navigation, camping equipment, renting a support vehicle to shadow the walk, etc)
The film ($60,000 needed):
Hiring the film crew: pay the documentarians to create and story arc and document the journey
Edit the footage to become an educational film to be shown in schools
Bringing the film into public schools ($8,000 needed):
Create the curriculum: informational packets and toolkits for teachers to use when bringing the film into their class
Pay educators to go into public schools to show the students the film and talk about where water comes from.
