Just curious, but do you mean if the trip expenses (lodging,food, etc) amount to $3,000 and you raise $3,005 in donations, you are going to give the charity $5?
Im budgeting 20 dollars a day for this trip which will be mainly used at affordable food joints and camping for free whenever possible. I'll be giving around half to the charity and half to support the tour. It might come shocking to many of you but I have been receiving donations, although most of them are form family and friends. People that know me personally know that I am an honest person and are not worried about my intentions with the money.
If by some slim chance I were to raise 3000 dollars, I would stick to the same plan I have now. (20$ a day)
Once again, I clearly state that only a portion of the money will be going to the charity. If I wasn't a college student already in debt, I would be donating the entire amount to charity (which I would state in my blog.) Please don't criticize me for swindling people out of their money, as that is in no way my intention. As a matter of fact if you go to my blog the section in which I explain all of this is under SPONSOR.
