The Grateful American Road Trip

In April 2018 we will drive over 30,000 miles in our Grateful American Road Trip to visit families in ALL 50 states to advocate for children who are sick with cancer or Crohn’s Disease, orphaned or living in poverty. We will be attempting to raise funds and awareness to support 50 individuals and/or organizations with whom we are volunteering as we travel to ALL 50 states.

Our ambitious goal is to fundraise $50,000 (at least $1,000 for each of the families we serve) over the course of our trip!

While the world is full of people in need, we have chosen to use crowdfunding campaigns as our primary source to find the children whom we seek to serve along our journey. As we travel we will meet and share the day with one or more children whose stories and crowdfunding campaigns we will share with you.

We hope that any success that we have on our journey will be multiplied in the “super charging” of compassion and giving by you and your friends and family in your community and communities all over the world!

Please read and share these stories among your friends and family and, if you are able to do so, please go to our SUPPORT page and contribute to our goal of supporting each and every one of these beautiful children!
