WE ARE ON OUR WAY!!!

WE ARE ON OUR WAY!!!

Jul 02

Hey, it’s Jackson. Over the past few weeks we’ve packed up our little apartment into a couple bags, dropped the dogs off at a friend’s house, put the rest of our things in storage, and now were on our way! Now were in New York City! Its great to be here. We’ve been walking around enjoying the great weather. Today we met Sue Sanford, our mentor who traveled around the world with her kids and has given us a lot of great travel advice. We also went to the Art Students League of New York and saw all the studios where artists paint and sketch and create art. It was really inspiring. We are staying here until Sunday night, when we fly to Berlin. We’re really excited to get started on our trip! Keep looking for our blogs on Twelveintwelve.org and Globalteenblogger.com!

Hey this is Jackson Lewis and I’m really excited to start my first blog. In July, my dad, brother, and I are going on a trip called Twelve in Twelve. We are going to twelve countries, staying in each country a month and doing humanitarian work in each country. We can’t wait to get started. We will be going to Russia, India, China, Cambodia, Senegal, Rwanda, Tanzania, Australia, South Georgia Island, Paraguay, Peru, and finishing our trip in Haiti. And when we’re done, we will live in Mississippi for a month to document the need in our own country. I’m really glad that we have the opportunity to go on this trip. We will be doing a documentary and weekly video and written blogs. We have fundraisers coming up to support our trip including a 12k race at the US National Whitewater Center. Signup information is on our website. To prepare for the trip we have started to get all of our shots and innoculations. We are also trying to get as many people as we can to follow us and come to our fundraisers. We leave July 1st and we’re all really excited. So join the journey and look for our blogs.
