Dear jovotans,

We’ve got more international post- The first video-message from our friend, Matias has arrived!

Where are you?

In Sri Lanka, South India, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Lisbon, Barcelona, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile or Argentina?

The For Glory Story

Remember back to last July, we had that awesome For Glory project running where you submitted your favorite personal, off-platform projects? It was there that Matias won first place for his breathtaking photo series, My view of the world. The prize was a trip to the jovoto HQs in Berlin– but Matias had his own ideas! He asked the jovoto team if, rather than winning a plane ticket to Berlin, if we’d be willing to give him the equal value in cash to support his dream of a TRIP AROUND THE WORLD!

We of course, wholeheartedly agreed! Here you can watch his announcement & thank you video. Fast forward to April 2014 and we’ve got the first message from the first stop on his world tour. Take a look!

Get in touch!

If you are along his way, be sure to get together for a chat, a photo shoot, a sight seeing tour around your city and or offer him a couch! Feel free to contact or invite Matias via email: matiplanas@hotmail.com

Send us photos or videos- and we’ll be sure to post again when Matias and his girlfriend stop over in Berlin.

Until then, we’ll keep you posted with any other updates we receive from their awesome trip!
