WE DID IT! Stretch Goal: $15,000
If we hit $15,000, we will create a bonus short documentary about the orphanages in Nepal: An Inside Look. Everyone at the $30 and above level will receive a free digital download! Those who donated $50 and above will have this bonus film as a special feature on their DVD!
AND if we reach our new stretch goal, you'll ALSO receive these upgrades to your rewards:
$50 or more: A NEPALESE GIFT - You will receive a unique gift from Nepal that will also be seen in the documentary. ($5 additional charge if shipped outside the US)
$100 or more: AN EXCLUSIVE PRINT TAKEN FROM THE HIKE - Producer Erin Lim will be taking stills during the filming, and we'll pick the best one to send you! ($5 additional charge if shipped outside the US)
$200 or more: BE A PART OF THE FILM! We'll have a skype chat with you during the filming of the documentary (location is dependent on internet availability), and put a piece of the chat on our "making of" featurette.
Please continue to spread the word to everyone you know, so we can make the project bigger and better! We feel empowered and energized. Let's do this!
Who is The Nomadic Family?
Insanely unorthodox, embarrassingly honest, and on a path to spiritual awakening, this family of 5 is on their third year of non-stop budget world travel. They lived with an indigenous tribe in the jungles of Ecuador, taught spirituality classes in hostels in Cambodia for 7 months, and are now training for their Fall 2013 Annapurna Circuit trek in Nepal where a film crew will accompany them for a documentary about how The Nomadic Family is redefining modern family life. Their critically acclaimed blog (thenomadicfamily.com) explains the untold sides of family travel life, those moments that take your breath away, and the adventures and mishaps while globetrotting.
We'll be following the Nomadic Family to Nepal as they trek the hills of Annapurna for three weeks, and then volunteer at an orphanage near Kathmandu (www.thekumariproject.org). In an ever changing universe, in the age of technology, watch as they live by their own rules, and make their dreams come true.

Risks and challenges
We're planning to trek in a country that we've never been to, with abnormally high elevations, and 3 pre-teenage kids. Nothing about this project is going to be easy. But, lucky for us, we didn't get to where we are today by fearing adversity. As seasoned travelers, we know to plan on our plans changing, and to expect the unexpected. Our job is to be flexible, roll with the punches, and never underestimate the goodness in people. I know enough to know that what we need will be provided. It happens every time. After all, the journey is the destination.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
