We’d like to be clear about how donated money will be spent. We got $3,000 from OWS that will go toward getting some things we need to make this possible (some gear, maybe food on the trip, bus tickets back to NYC, etc) but we’re hoping to spend as little as possible. Any money we receive in donations will go toward these expenses – we will spend our donated money first, then the money we got from OWS. In other words, we’d love to be able to give the entire $3,000 back to OWS when we get back. Any additional money raised will go toward planning a future march or toward turning this in to a much larger idea – Occupy the Highway.
As far as donations of physcial stuff we need, we’ve got some work to do to make that possible. We will probably reach out to some of our future desitinations and see if stuff can be mailed there and then picked up by us when we arrive, but that might be tough. We’ll update soon with when we figure something out.
