Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/22/2016 -- The Rolling Bard, a YouTube video series centered around an online storytelling road trip adventure to be published every Saturday morning for an entire year, this past month launched a Kickstarter campaign for garnering financial backing and widespread support in the monumental countrywide undertaking. Launched to enable the Bard himself, Zaque Harig, to afford food and gas for his continental excursion, the Kickstarter campaign has only five days left to reach the $15,000 goal.
Throughout the YouTube series, Harig plans to harness his passions and experiences as a Marine, a foodie, a server, a singer, a songwriter, a storyteller, and above all, an adventurer.
"The Rolling Bard is designed to bring a 52-week quintessential American road trip right to the forefront of viewer's laptops and phones," said Harig. "My plan is to live as an Irish Bard for an entire year, sharing and collecting some of our country's most elusive and eye-opening stories. Every Saturday, I'll share an episode with viewers on YouTube highlighting my last week's travels and lessons learned with new smiling faces."
Nothing is off-limits in Harig's YouTube series. From heart-wrenching military stories, to new friends at American diners and restaurants, Harig is determined to experience, and share, it all with passionate viewers.
In order to afford the 52-week trip, The Rolling Bard is seeking Kickstarter funding for an assured yearlong video web series. Though Harig plans to sleep in his van and minimize as many costs as possible, food and gas will require a substantial amount to keep him going.
The Kickstarter campaign is already up to $12,800, and with five days to go, Harig needs to cross the $15,000 mark.
