Becoming Barenaked – the Indiegogo campaign

Becoming Barenaked - the book

I LOVE LOVE LOVE and adore the the BareNakedFamily! They have been friends of mine and an inspiration to me for YEARS! You might have heard of them or even seen them on TV over the years – they might have even been your neighbours. Becoming BareNaked is a handwritten book from Jenn‘s personal journals culminating the last twelve years of her family’s adventurous upbringing – escaping their “American Dream” lifestyle, pulling their kids out of school, and hitting the road – living (in my opinion) the ultimate dream lifestyle as true Americans. Their kids are among the few most well adjusted, smartest kids I have ever known, lovingly home-schooled on the road – the ultimate learning experience. They all just started college this year!

Becoming BareNaked is a book personally written with the details of how exciting, terrifying, and absolutely raw we were in getting out of the thickly laid web of the American Dream. Thoughts, perspectives, judgements, second guessing, and a whole lot of philosophy on how we did this and what it was like to not only take our lives back, but the responsibility of raising kids in it all. It’s one thing to risk yourself for what you believe in, doing it with three kids; two dogs; and a cat…bold. Incorporating some of the technical and financial details on how we made this happen for us, this is not a ‘how to’ book, a travel book,or a professionally written and edited book. This is a peek into our passionately written personal journals detailing a life of getting out. It’s an art book following our family during a very vulnerable transition. Authentic. Real. Unrestricted. BareNaked.

If you want to get a copy of the book you will also be supporting their beautiful indiegogo campaign:

To successfully produce, promote, and market this personally handwritten book in an artistic, self publishing form rather than traditional publishing allowing us to hold on to editing rights and hard earned royalties. Giving us ultimate freedom on how, where, and how much we can sell our book for giving the power back to us as the artists and allowing us to make it accessible to our audience with unique promotions and marketing.

Please love and support the BareNakedFamily – and share their campaign if its all you can contribute right now. Thank you!

PS – those are their real legs!! Someone very lucky in the wallet and heart department will get that gorgeous quilt for being the biggest contributer on the campaign. The only one in the world like it. They made it by hand together from goodwill scraps – a real American quilt!
