When setting up the "Support" page on this site, I had little to no expectation of receiving donations toward the trip, and I certainly didn't anticipate so many friends, family, and even some strangers to pitch in. As of today I am thrilled to announce that Mantraofmiles.com has a total of sixteen official, incredible, amazing, beautiful sponsors. Their gifts have ranged from $5 to $50, and even one unbelievable gift of $100 which spared me from eating canned meat for several days. As promised, I've listed each one of them on the Support page, so hike on over there and bow down to their graciousness.
I've also put together a short video to show the sponsors a snapshot of what they have helped me achieve so far. I sent it out a couple of days ago for the sponsors to see (yep, you can add "private advance screenings" to the list of advantages of sponsoring the trip), but I've decided to share it with everyone to see if it doesn't make you want to see your name in the next video.
