Sharaya is a musician, I am a writer, and and we're about to take the next five months to travel across the country to each of the fifty states. Its a music tour, its a book tour, its an experiment in chasing our dreams. Its an adventure... and we want to bring you along!

We've been planning for months and we're quickly realizing that chasing your dreams is a huge undertaking. We've worked hard, saved a ton, made sacrifices, and sold almost everything we own. Still, we're a bit short of our goal.

From the money we've already raised we funded Sharayas first record, and now she's working on another one. I never knew how expensive this could be!

We hosted a yard sale last month where we raised enough money (we hope) to cover our gas from coast to coast. But the truth is that if we don't come up with more gas money before October, we're going to get stuck on the way home... maybe around Kansas somewhere!?

Also, I've never heard of a cross-country road trip sans car-trouble, have you? We're going to need a little budget for oil changes, tire rotations, and other little unexpected mishaps along the way.

We plan to stay with friends in most of the cities we visit, so lodging will be free. But we do have to eat meals! And Sharaya is really cranky in the morning before she gets her coffee. So a little budget for that would be nice, too.

Last but not least, it wouldn't be a fifty-state tour without a trip to Hawaii and Alaska! Did you know that there is NO cheap way to get to Alaska? We've never been. We're without a couple of plane tickets that it's going to take to make it happen.

We need your help to Kickstart our dreams so we can inspire others to do the same! Watch our short video to find out what you can do.

Breakdown of funds:
$400 Gas
$400 Food
$800 Airfare to Alaska
$200 Order T's and stickers for shows
$200 Car Maintenance

Funds exceeding our goal of $2,000 will go toward publicity and promotion as we launch our new careers. Possibly a music video, and publication of the Packing Light book.

Thank you for your support!
Ally & Sharaya
