Did Someone Say Launch Party?! Oh, yeah.

Wow!  This has been one busy week at Good Foot Project – a big thanks to all our friends and family who stepped in to make it happen!

This past week we booked 10 farm stays between late May and October of this year. We start with two in Kentucky, plus a visit to a farm that is run by my distant cousins, Hannah and Jesse, another in Virginia, then two farms in New York, one each in Vermont and Maine, back through northern Kentucky for one more, a brief stop in southern Illinois to visit my Grandfather, then two more farm stays in Missouri before heading south prior to the cold weather settling in next year. I’m exhausted already.

Our website is bustling with new articles and posts and comments from our readers – thank you all for joining the discussion! We’ll be adding new pictures soon plus an interactive map so you can follow along the expedition. Big news on the data-tracking front- we have gotten over 550 visits to the blog in two short weeks and over 100 followers on Facebook! We thank all of you who support our efforts and hope that you will continue to help grow the Good Foot Project community by sharing our links.

And now, for something completely different…


You & your guests are invited – “On the Good Foot” launch party March 9
(click to enlarge)

Wednesday, we got our IndieGoGo campaign up and running. It’s our latest crowd-sourcing campaign to help raise awareness and funds for our expedition. We have most of the costs for the expedition covered but we are hoping to add a couple solar panels to the rig so we won’t have to rely on the gas-powered generator for power. Anastasia and I believe that solar is simply the right thing to do in most cases, but I think we all might need a little help to make that a reality. Please, take a moment to stop by our page and share it with your friends if you are so inclined. All contributions are rewarded with some amazing perks – including some of JC’s fine art photography and oil paintings.

And, if that were not enough…you all are invited to our launch party, “On the Good Foot”, Saturday, March 9 at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Arts (LACDA) in downtown LA . The evening begins at 5pm with an art preview and auction. Followed by a night of live Jazz, HipHop and EDM: singers Jody Jaress and Erin Powers will be performing along with a late-night set by DJ MOOP. If you are local and available, we hope you will help us kick it off “On the Good Foot”! Contact Anastasia@goodfootproject.com for more info.

Whew…I’m pretty certain this pace is not going to let up until we get on the road – come on April 28!

      Thanks, Vicky. That’s exactly what Good Foot Project is for – to share our journey with our friends that cannot make this sort of change right now. I hope you will be able to join us at our launch party March 9 – it’s going to be a blast!
