How many people dream of a trip around the world?
The Pfeiffer’s, a Washington DC family are seeking contributions to finance their film, The Sailing Project, a documentary chronicling their circumnavigation of the globe. They stated on Kickstarter.com that the project will only be followed through if at least $100,000 is pledged by Sunday, July 3 2016 at 3:48 p.m. CDT. With a voyage launch date of March, 2017.
“The Sailing Project is a documentary of our circumnavigation of the world in search of the good life,” Pfeiffer stated.
She and her husband will teach their two daughters, ages 6 and 7, about the world through seeing and doing. “We will explore the cultures of the world through its people and places, and with the support of our sponsors and you guys, we will give back to charity organizations in every destination, ultimately giving back to the world that gives us so much.”
Contributions for the project can be made at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1708127835/the-sailing-project
Several levels of contribution have been established for this project, each with its specified rewards:
• $50 or more – a Sailing Project t-shirt shipped to contributor anywhere in the world – size of choice – male or female.
• $100 or more – Contributor can pick a destination and an activity on their journey (within reason of course).
• $500 or more – A flag of the contributor’s choice will be purchased and flown during the voyage. This could be a cause of your choice, or a design you want represented around the world.
• $1000 or more – Contributor can pick a destination and charity, and the voyagers will give back through volunteering for that charity,
• $10,000 or more – Contributor can participate in the voyage for 4 days at a country of his/her choice and will be featured in the documentary.
The Sailing Project was conceived recently after a member of Pfeiffer’s family was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. After years of working to save for retirement, their family member’s retirement years are unknown.
“I am not sure about you, but for me, in moments like this, I am forced to reflect on life,” Renn Pfeiffer stated.
She and her husband work nine to 15 hours a day for top consulting firms and have accumulated “material things” with little in the way of quality family time. “This reflection was depressing,” Pfeiffer stated. “We started to think about what we wanted out of life.” From this, The Sailing Project and search for the good life was born.
Pfeiffer and her husband, both have degrees in Economics and work as IT and financial consultants.
