There are many individuals and families who are helping us to make this trip happen. It is a big project that would not be possible to face alone. We invite all willing and able to lend a hand to do so. To all: THANK YOU.
1. Helping with the expenses
To finance this project we are using our savings and selling everything that we will not need in these 7 months of travel. Part of the experience is about learning to walk with lighter luggage. When we return we will start again.
In order to make the trip and assuming that much of the time we can stay in family homes or parishes, we lack US $ 14,300 (we include in the budget the purchase and overhauling of the kombi, travel expenses during 8 months, Panama canal crossing, flight back to Buenos Aires and repatriation of the kombi).

2. Opening a door
For seven months we will travel through America with the support and generosity of families who want to open the doors of their homes and their lives to share with us some days. We know that we are many but we are happy to accommodate to the possibilities of each family.
In the Route section, you can find a detailed itinerary. If you live in one of these towns or cities or you have friends or families who want to receive us, please let us know.
3. Following our steps
During all the trip, we will be gathering testimonies, messages and stories of families that we cross in our path. With all this material we can share this journey with others that will also attend the Philadelphia meeting and with the people, friends and family Buenos Aires. We will share our impressions, learning and experiences in the blog americaenfamilia.com and in Facebook.
We also disseminate the experience and the meeting in local media of the different places where we spend. If you have any contacts in the media, please contact us with them!
