So many of your made this expedition possible – with your participation in ‘An Exchange’ and the Kickstarter campaign – in exchange for donations we offered Jason Floiro’s limited edition fine photography art prints, taken whilst on the River Gambia Expedition . For that, we were immensely humbled by your support and unprecedented generosity.

Before we first sent out our fundraising emails we tried to think of a unique way of saying thank you to everyone who chipped in. The above is what we came up with. And, along the way, we had fun doing this…so many people we met on the journey, who participated when we explained, loved the idea of it – and/or loved the camera! Either way, it worked out really well.

Please see our ‘big thanks page’ for more banners.

BIG Thanks!
