Thank You

How Dare She is possible thanks to the contributions of so many believers in this attempt to collect every country in the world. I’m beyond grateful for their support and hope that each and every one knows that they are a part of this. You will find thanks to them in the credits of each video as well, but they will remain here in gratitude. Want to be on the list? Check out the About page to see how.

First and foremost big thank yous to Janet Protonentis and Jonathan Elliott. Not only have they supported this wild idea, but have raised me with the spirit that it will take to accomplish it and have helped with countless things that are just easier done by someone in the country.

Next, a huge thank you to Mike Graziano and Global Degree. It was Global Degree that inspired me to take the leap and figure this whole thing out. Mike, Alex and Natalia are also out traveling, providing continuous injections of inspiration to myself and many others.
