EVENT DATE: Apr 06, 2013
Hi I am Christian Kruger and on the 2nd of April 2013 I am going to hitchhike, walk and use public transport up the East coast of Africa to Cairo, with the goal of raising as much money as possible for charity. I am aiming to raise one dollar for every km that I travel. Within this journey I want to immerse myself within the African cultures all along the coast. I would like to live and experience their way of life. I will also involve myself with volunteer projects all the way up. I am in the process of contacting volunteer groups. I am planning to travel to Cairo for about 7 months.
I will be traveling with bare necessities such as my backpack, 1 man tent, portable gas stove and sleeping bag. I will cover all my traveling expenses and every cent that you donate will go via Crowdrise for cancer awareness.
To show my appreciation, I am going to publically thank all the donors via a Facebook page. I will do this by uploading a photo of a thank you message on my facebook page. I will also link it to Google maps, so you can see exactly where the photo was taken.
So why am I doing this?
I just finished my degree in accounting and I am planning to do my honours next year at WITS University. Most people may see this as taking a year off or being set back a year; I see it as an opportunity to make a difference. With your help and my foot steps up the coast of Africa we all can give back to society. 2013 is the year of greatness and I am planning to make great things happen. Its time to start giving back.
