A Simple Expedition Grant

 

I want to flag up a nice, simple expedition grant from Tim Moss which might appeal to you for two reasons.

1: You are planning your first adventure and could do with a small grant to help make it happen.
2: You are in a position to spare a few quid to help those in position 1.

Tim is a genuinely decent bloke and I’d like to help him spread the word. He explains the bursary he has set up:
“I received many expedition grants when I was younger. They helped me undertake some fantastic adventures which have shaped the person I am today. I am now in a position where I can give something back.”

Tim has donated the proceeds of advertising on his site – £200 – to this grant, and asked his social media following to help match his total by donating just £2 each.
Similar to Tim, I’m also now in a position whereby I can help people starting out on adventures. So I contacted Tim and offered to match his £200. A few other adventurers have kindly done the same.

And so the pot is growing.

I’m writing this post today to ask you two questions.

1: If you’re a novice adventurer and planning an adventure (it doesn’t have to be an epic), why don’t you apply for Tim’s grant? You can do it here.
2: If you like the idea of supporting people on their first adventure, can you spare a little money to chuck into the pot? It might be £2, it might be £200. It doesn’t matter! Give whatever you can here.

This is a very informal grant. Tim will pick the grant winners and distribute the money himself. Donations should be made via PayPal here. I’ll vouch for Tim’s character and assure you he’s not going to run off with the cash and spend it on fast cars and liquor!
