Who we are and why we accept donations

We are not a non-profit. We are a young couple traveling the world, learning from others, enjoying ourselves and sharing our moments so that you can enjoy them as well. This takes time and it takes money and when money gets tight, we may have to pick up on work, or end our travels to earn more money. We appreciate any donations you may decide to make and we will use the money as wisely as possible and for things we need or for things we have always wanted to do and try. If you don’t specify what you’d like us to do with the money you donate, we will put it towards something of our own choosing. And don’t worry, we will share exactly what your donations went towards.

How much should I donate?

As much or as little as you’d like or can afford. No matter what, us poor monkeys will be very appreciative!

Why should I consider donating?

If you’ve come to this page, you’re already considering donating? Now ask yourself why you may want to donate money:

  • Because you enjoy reading stories from our trips
  • Because you have received good or helpful advice from one of our posts
  • Because this website costs money to host and you appreciate that we haven’t sold out to the advertisers
  • Because you don’t want Andrew around anymore
  • Or because we have inspired you to go have an adventure of your own or fueled a future adventure!

Can I specify what the donation be used for?

payapl_inst_1Absolutely! It’s your money, tell us what you’d like to do with it. There is a section in the donation page, before you confirm, where you can provide special instructions with the donation. For example, to help pay for (more) spare bike parts, to save for an emergency or to have a hot meal on you. Or maybe you’d just like to challenge us to try something new or fun; within reason, of course (and keep in mind Andrew has eaten much weirder things than Rocky Mountain Oysters).

How can I donate with a Credit Card?

Yes. When you click on the “Donate” button, you will have the option to pay with either a Credit Card or with PayPal. The choice is yours!

I don’t trust this inter-web thing; can I donate with a check?

I don’t trust this internet thing either, so yes. You can donate via old-fashioned check or money order. In fact, it’d be a little bit nicer since PayPal won’t get a small percentage for their credit card processing fee (we see it on our end; you won’t see that part). To donate via check, please send them to:

Undestined Travel Fund
c/o Andrew Carmichael
PO Box 473
Windsor, VT 05089

Just include a note letting us know who you are, why you are being so kind and what (if anything) you would like us to specifically use the money for.

I’m satisfied. Now what?

Click the “Donate” button at the top or bottom of this page, or in the right hand column of any other page. That or go back to reading our stories and come back to donate another day.

Cheers!
