One average guy named Aaron
One tiny rowboat named “Smiles”
One great cause for everyone
As access and communication technologies grow, we are now more than ever poised to connect communities around the world. Some communities, however, few outsiders will ever see. And they could use our help too.
We live in a world that’s influenced and polished in a way that makes it hard to know what’s actually going on out there. Not everyone in first world countries have the means or the knowledge to experience off-the-beaten-paths in the world and personally connect with the communities there. They don't know what other communities have or need in terms of food and supplies, they just go by what organizations tell them. We are overloaded with information that tends to be paid marketing efforts to get to us, making it difficult to know what the impact of our efforts to help actually is.
Your donations --> taken directly to the cause.
I know and have met some of the most wonderful communities on the planet. From the unspoken heroes around this world that you never hear about to those starving from hunger, dying quietly as bigger revenue headlines wash their stories away. Now, I am taking my tiny rowboat ‘Smiles’ around the world to find it all and share it first-hand… from sea level!
On Sept 15th, (Weather Dependent) I’m launching my greatest expedition yet – 3 to 5 years of more stories of unique communities around the world, reconnect with ones I have met from the past, and feature the individuals that leave a positive footprint among them. Sharing these, from an unbiased perspective, with first-hand, factual footage, will allow me to show YOU what most never get a chance to experience... the chance to see level!
2016 'Finding the Current', 'Longest
Solo Canoe or Kayak Attempt'
Did I mention I'll be doing this all while setting a Guinness World Record?!
So what are we doing here?
With a learning disability particular to writing and reading, visual media is the only universal language I am skilled at capturing. One that won't get lost in a digital translation, as many others do.
While I am making this as cost-effective and environmentally friendly (again… in a ROWBOAT!) as I can, I do still need the equipment, plus I have to get there!
Together, we will be proving that supporters right here can make a difference by personally handing donations to random members of these communities, who never saw it coming. Imagine sitting in your comfy chair and smiling as you watch a video of your direct impact on the world.

I have made it permanent. Anyone who contributes any amount is going on the outside hull of 'Smiles'. It is just my way of remembering and showing others, the power and capability the good people in this world, have.
Sponsorship is important for our team, both with product and contributions. Here is our way of saying thanks to the world, on your behalf. We will place a 2x4ft logo of your company on the outside of the vessel. This comes with lots of mentions and social media plugs across the worldwide reach for Adventure Aaron, which will be discussed directly from Aaron to the company rep.
Can you spare two minutes to save the world?
OK, two minutes might not be enough for that. But it's plenty of time for you to personalize and share a copy of our campaign.
Together we can do some good for this cause. And it won't cost you a penny—just a few minutes of your time.
