Cinecrowd Campaign

The hitchhikers of Thumbs Up Africa safely arrived in Cape Town. They set out to hitchhike 15.000 kilometers from the Netherlands to South Africa, it ended up to be over 24.000 kilometers – more than half of the circumference of the earth! 24.000 kilometers of amazing, inspiring, and at times surprising footage that was shot by professional filmmakers…we can’t allow that to not be shared with you!

About the goal: € 10112

Our goal was to raise the symbolic amount of of 10,112 Euros. 10.1.12 stands for the tenth month (10), on the first day (1) in the year of 2012 ('12). This is the day, on which Thumbs Up Africa was launched. This was the day that Christiaan, Neda and Sierd embarked on the unprecedented adventure of a lifetime – in search for answers in Africa on what sustainability means in practice, the impact in the day-to-day lives of people, and experiencing where we stand in reaching a sustainable society.

With the revenues from the crowdfunding, the amount of money that was raised by the ticket sale on the Wings for Earth Charter event, and with some private donations, we are glad to say that we raised 80% of our crowdfunding goal!
