we are Alex and Jorin from Italy and Germany and together we created the Euroadtrip2012!
It is an enormous project and we're more than happy to be in the situation to realize it.
The Euroadtrip2012 is a hitchhiking project which will take part this summer in August in September going from Istanbul to Berlin with stops in many different countries. The purpose is to raise funds for two different social projects Europe.
We know that many people that we will meet along the way have a lot more essential problems than enjoying their freedom and to go for some adventures.
Their concerns are about to have enough to eat for their families, to live in a secure environment and to have a proper education.
These are the facts about the hitchhiking project in short words:
•Basically we will go hitchhiking in a big group so we give everyone the opportunity to participate
•Our main focus will be on street arts (like juggling, painting, playing music...).
•We want to go from place to place and show people that hitchhiking is a great way to travel and that everyone is able to change something
•During our trip we will update our website with pictures, video and text reports so that everyone can follow us
•We are planning on shooting a documentary video of the trip
The two different social projects we chose are related with our hitchhiking trip through Europe. Our main attention is on social integration and a sustainable work for the future of the children and their families who are living at the edge of the society in poor countries.
We are of the view that we need more mutual understanding and contact among each other within Europe. In this way we will be able to live in a peaceful and respectful environment in the future. With this hitchhiking project we want send a signal and to make a little contribution to improve the intercultural exchange in Europe.

Dear friends, supporters and hitchhiking lovers,
just a short message to all of you out there. Due to the fact that we finally made it to get the prize money of the short movie that we've won we were now able to hand it over to our chosen social projects in Albania and Bosnia-Hercegovina. It feels so very good that the whole thing went quite successful. We really hope that all of you, the participants, the donators, the children who get supported, everybody who has been somehow involved, could gain something out of this. In whatever way this might be.
In this sense we hope that we could demonstrate to you it is possible to have a great adventure on a low budget while helping people who don't have the privilege to have such an opportunity. But also, we are not professional adventures but just ordinary people who did something extraordinary. So in the end it is in everybody's own hands to do something and to have the chance to change something. At least it is worth trying it.
We want to finish the Euroadtrip2012 with a massive thank you to everybody. I think there is nothing else that we could add.
Thumbs up for a better world!
