Weʼre raising £500 to Help fund equipment to start up a travel blog to highlight Bali and it's people in a way not often seen -The life behind the paradise!
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I have been passionate about travelling the world and i have been lucky enough to travel to some amazing places, from Morocco to Australia to New York and Greece. I have met some incredible people and try to take the off beaten track when I can.
I have more recently been inspired by some amazing women who have set up their own travel blogs, often staying in luxury hotels and showing off tans and food from far off places.... these women are beautiful and my respect and adoration for them is high...
But what I want to do is a little different. Yes I would like to promote these wonderful places, bring tourism to countries that thrive on the economy of it... But I want to go further... meet the locals, interact and tell their stories... I want to promote their local traditions, clothes, food, document their achievements, and importantly, their struggles... show people the world behind the tourism!
I think this is important in a world full of Instagram filters and obsessed with getting thousands of Facebook likes!
I have booked a trip to Bali to start just that in May, and I have already reached out to a few locals there that I would like to feature...
At present my phone will have to make do as the flights alone have almost bankrupted me!!! I am humbly asking for help to see if I can raise the money for a second hand Fuji x100t which is lightweight and has been recommended to me for this kind if endeavour. This will allow me to capture a raw and beautiful image, just as I see it, and share it with the world!
If you can see my vision and want to see an unfiltered, true reflection of what Bali (And if successful, in the future many other beautiful countries) has to offer, please spare a few pennies or pounds. Thankyou for taking the time to consider this, and Om Swastiastu!
