Help fund "The Bottom Up Project"

The Bottom Up Project - Travelling to Feed a Purpose.

Hi, my name is Dines Anandavel (Dinesh) and I am the founder of The Bottom Up Project. I have a vision of making a meaningful difference in the world by helping people, help people.

Through “The Bottom Up Project”, we will learn to understand each other better and learn how the way we live our lives negatively impacts the lives of others. The project will help improve the quality of life of less fortunate people, while at the same time, lessening the negative environmental impacts we cause.

"If everyone can learn to understand each other, we will be able to build a better world."

I’ll be driving from Ottawa to Chile in a custom built campervan. During this journey, I will use my extensive list of skills and abilities to help improve the lives of as many people as possible, in line with the sustainable development goals of the United Nations. I’ll be documenting my journey (using YouTube Facebook, Tik Tok and Instagram) and building a following in order to promote and gain users for a platform that will enable people to help each other directly. This platform will be in the form of an app that will help people connect from all over to the people who can help them.

I will be taking part in Van Life for trial run to prove to myself and the world that we can do this.

Why Van Life?

Van Life is an existing movement with a large global community that subscribes to the principles of self-sufficiency, freedom, community and helping each other out. As such, they are the perfect target audience for this concept.

We want to build a better world where people care about what they do not what they get. This is a free service relying on donations to cover minimal admin costs. Ad revenue is also an option.

What will the money be used for?

I will use the money to build the van and to cover expenses throughout the trip. The remaining funds will be used for the projects that I will helping with and working at my destination.

Why do I need your donations?

During this trip, I am going to volunteer my time to focus on helping people. I have also been donating my own savings to help build the platform and I now need your support in order to continue to make this vision a reality.

Thank you for helping us move forward together.
