Lieutenant Planet is creating a video-journey of my van-life as an environmental activist!

My name is Curtis. I am 30 years old and from Tampa Bay, Florida. In my adult life, I’ve always worked in the service industry, and loved it. It’s an honest living and it afforded me the opportunity to make people happy every day.
I do have a degree in Political Science, but have never “used” it, according to my resume. I didn’t go to school to get a career, I went to get an education- a broad one, that incorporated the need to understand a lot of things together. Social constructs, technology, culture, politics, the economy, international relations, sustainability, history, etc. I went to college to be a more well-rounded person. A more understanding person. And in that sense, I’ve gotten a lot of use out of my degree, and I even keep that slightly crumpled piece of paper they gave me, somewhere. I’ll throw it away when I’m done paying for it.
Service has always been something I’ve clung to, because it gives me value. Value has always been more important to me than worth- Worth is a double-edged sword, whereas value can only be from zero to positive. And the positive is limitless.
Now I’ve decided to expand my value. I’m getting out of the rat-race and heading West. I will be stopping in various towns and cities, national parks, and campgrounds. And I’ll be cleaning.
The one thing that affects everything I have learned, all the people I love, and all the beauty around me, is the health of our planet. In this age, environmental consciousness and sustainability absolutely must be at the forefront of our collective thought as the sentient curators of this planet. Most people understand that concept. And most people are waiting for everyone else to do something about it.
I volunteer.
I have sold/given away most of my belongings. Everything I own now fits in the trunk of my car. Clothes, supplies, tools, and equipment. I’m hitting the road. And I’m going to do my best to make a difference, to make the world a little nicer, and to show that a person’s value isn’t decided by their bank account, but by the beauty they create.

Patron
$1 or more per month

Thanks for following and being a part of the community! This basic package gives you access to my video journal as I travel and clean up areas that need help. Some of what I do includes lobbying with legislators for the environment- the more paid subscribers I have, the more political will I represent, and the more power our community has to do good!

Planeteer
$3 or more per month

Planeteers keep the Lieutenant Planet initiative on the road- writing articles, doing cleanups, going to rallies, and establishing a community that's ready to push for better environmental policy!

The larger the Planeteer community, the more power it has! Your subscription gets you access to our continuous video collection, as well as bonus videos and the Lieutenant's Log. As a Planeteer, your name will also be added to the outside of  LIV, the Planet-Van!

Tree-Hugger
$10 or more per month

Tree-Huggers are extra dedicated Planeteers with a love for everything green! For every Tree-Hugger patron, in addition to the perks of being a Planeteer, I will also plant a tree somewhere along my route and record the geographic coordinates so you can find it on your own travels!

Superheros
$100 or more per month

This limited-access package is for people or businesses that want to support the Lieutenant Planet movement. In addition to the Tree-Hugger benefits, you will enjoy your organizations name in larger print on a separate part of the outside of the Planet-Van. I will also host your logo and link it to your organizations website on my environmental journalism website's sponsor page! Leave an address and I will personally mail you 3 Lieutenant Planet adhesive embroidered patches! Benefit requests are also negotiable. 

Goals
28 of 500 patrons
When I get to 500 Planeteers, I will be completely self-sufficient as Lieutenant Planet and can then focus on growing a new branch of the concept as a non-profit organization with a focus on starting and/or facilitating cleanups, protests, environmental research and lobbying, you name it! No literally, you will name it- tell me what issue is important to you as a community of Planeteers, and I'll tailor my destinations and the path of the concept. With our powers combined, we can make a difference!
