Travel enthusiast Kristin Lajeunesse has set herself a mighty big resolution for her upcoming b-day. By the time she hits 30, she hopes to have eaten in all 100% vegan restaurants in the major cities of the United States.
(Wow. I think my resolution was something like “Call friends more often.” Ho hum.)
The goal of Lajeuenesse’s trip is to bring holistic awareness to veganism — to shine light on animal rights, vegan businesses, and delicious, cruelty-free eats around the country.
Her blog Will Travel For Vegan Food – called WTF for short – will provide readers with tales and videos of her journey. She plans to review her meals, interview vegan restaurant and business owners, and detail her on-the-road volunteer adventures at farm sanctuaries and other animal rescues.
But for now, you’ll find great updates on on Kickstarter, a popular Website that allows members to fund and follow creative projects. The Will Travel For Vegan Food Kickstarter page goes into details of the epic trip and offers some sweet swag for those who donate as little as $10 to the cause. She’s currently at 17 percent of her fundraising goal, and the clock is ticking something serious — funding for this project ends October 6, 2011.
Does this sound like a dream trip to you? Or something you’d like to do vicariously through supporting the WTF trip? Check out the vid below!
