No Excuses Poster

In 2011, I designed this poster to fund-raise my way onto the second Climate Ride of the year. Check out the full story below.

In addition to months of prepping your body and bike for the 5-day, ~330-mile ride, you're required to raise $2,400 for at least one ecologically-focused nonprofit organization. That May, I'd managed to raise the money in just one month before funds were due by way of a silly (yet sincere) poem I wrote. It worked!

A mere month before the start of the year's second ride, I decided I wanted to do it. Mind you, this meant humbly asking (begging!) everyone for money again, AND meeting the same goal in less time than I had given myself before (the fundraising deadline was just three weeks away). To gain the financial support I needed this time around, I designed the top half of this poster with tiny details of my memories from the first ride, and promised everyone that if I ended up making enough money in time, I'd finish the bottom half with illustrated memories I'd make on the second ride. With a little luck and a lot of love from friends and family, I made it happen again and cycled my happy butt down that Western coast.

I believe in doing the things you think you cannot do, as Eleanor Roosevelt so famously encouraged. Life is short, so you might as well do what you can while you can do it! No excuses.
