I make (mostly) daily videos are about a a guy who has set off on a cycle adventure from China to the USA on a recumbent 3 wheel trike all the while trying to check off his bucket list items along the way.

I've already completed a Everest summit expedition, gotten hit by a truck on a lonely Chinese highway, ran marathons in North Korea and traveled around China and Southeast Asia.

I built this whole project around my mantra, JaYoe.  It's a play on an existing Chinese phrase 加油, which means "to add fuel".  I'm trying to add fuel to my life and the lives around me thru inspiring acts of adventure and travel.  Up until now I have self funded my tour and video production, but with over 400 VLOG episodes to date and a bunch of video projects coming, I figured it was time to ask for communal help.

We live in an amazing world, where independent artists and filmmakers can produce their own product which can entertain, inform and inspire people all over the world.  And they can do this with all the drive and determination of someone at the helm of their own ship.  But most of us don't have a studio paying us for our service.  We do it because we are passionate.  We enjoy it.  It drives us.  But often times passion projects like this do not get the requisite return on investment, and this forces us to try to pay the bills with a lesser option while sacrificing the quality of our true passion.

I guess what I am saying is if you have been entertained, informed or inspired by my videos, I invite you to join the JaYoe Nation.  By giving whatever you can afford to give, you will be helping support my efforts to create, and help me to focus on the things that I love.  In turn, I can continue to deliver to the best possible quality videos and interactions with the world as I travel.

And don't worry.  If you don't want to give, cannot afford or don't like me that much, I'm totally OK with that too.  I still love you.

By the way, if you are wondering what JaYoe means and the message that drives me... i made this little video to help you understand!

Wow... this would be cool right?  To receive $1,000 to make the videos I love to make, from the people who enjoy watching them.  It's the perfect storm scenario.
