Hi, I’m Markus. Welcome to the Routes of Change community.

Why Patreon?
Social Media and Youtube do not provide me with a financially sustainable way to continue with Routes of Change. Without any large sponsors or production funding behind me I have survived this far with my own hard work, the generous support of my community, and the kindness of strangers I meet along the journey. I feel it is now time to take Routes of Change to the next level, move beyond simply surviving, and start thriving with you by my side.

Patreon is a way for the community to ensure the success of this expedition. With your steady support for the remainder of the journey I can focus my energy on my social impact by producing excellent content and inspiring sustainable change around the planet.

It provides us with a platform to interact and communicate on a personal level that you can’t get anywhere else. It allows you to participate in the journey and be rewarded for your actions while also helping me to continue. It’s a value for value exchange.

Why Me?
For over three years I’ve been using just my muscles and some wind to journey over 30,000 km around the planet. No planes. No trains. No automobiles. Not even an elevator. I'm not as crazy as you may think. I just like a good challenge and believe I can change the world.

I’m not anti-motor, nor do I think I’m saving the planet. What I am doing is inspiring the public and students at presentations and connecting with local non-profit organizations to share their stories and raise support for them.

I'm creating videos and writing a book and blog to share my adventure with a wider audience. I don’t pretend to be a hero or have all the answers to our problems but I do think I’m part of the solution, and more importantly I think we are all part of the solution.

Come along for the ride as I continue to travel around the world without a motor while changing perceptions about what is possible in our own lives and the world we wish to live in.  Join the Routes of Change community and let’s make epic things happen.

How your support will help me:
The majority of your support will go towards my primary concerns right now; everyday survival and the continuation of this expedition. Mostly that means food and accommodation when I’’m not in a tent or on a sailboat. I do need a dry and secure space more often now that I am carrying a computer and editing on a regular basis. At the moment I’m a one man film production crew and expedition director so the expenses are relatively low. I’m doing a lot with a little and it’s a bit stressful at times.

This is a non-profit membership based community with benefits for everyone. I am a volunteer. My life is Routes of Change. This expedition and organization have been growing for the past 1300+ days.

With more support I will invest in my camera gear and the production of my vlog to help reach more people and secure a consistent income to fund the rest of the expedition and the feature film production. An increasing budget will enable me to find more support with logistics, sponsorships, communications, education, video production, and outreach.

I've proven that I can do a lot with a little but I'd prefer to do much more with a little support from you. Join me and the Routes of Change community and together we will change the world. In fact, we already are. Thank you.

Gratefully yours,
Markus
