Help Eddie Travel the World. Donate Here.
Sparks is going to travel on multiple country trips. These series trips are chosen based on seasons and visa difficulty. Why don’t you go with him?
Moving content from a foreign country to the internet to the USA takes forever. Staying consistent does too. Possibly a volunteer position for you?
Each trip has different costs based on location, landing costs and transportation availability. Would you like to offer your country expertise?
The Man Minute was created to fill a need for real information about business. When super human and half Neanderthal Eddie Sparks got on probation for a DUI, he decided to travel around the world. Determined to be the 97th person to complete every country in the world meant he would be keeping a clear head and his pants on. After staying sober throughout most of central & south America for his own personal safety, Sparks’ massive ego decided he could keep himself occupied by accepting the quest of turning average men into business craftsman. The Man Minute is a testimony of how math and mathematics alone could be the only deterring factor of financially handling the cost of world travel. This page is here for those few who have benefited from and are addicted to the most sadistic thing that the most interesting man in the world has ever done. Bwahahaha. Traveling roughly cost $100 a day and somewhere on this page should be a running total of the financial requirements to finish the world as well as other fun facts.
As of 12/12/18 Currently Need 1315 People to Donate $100 dollars to Make it around the world – every dollar helps (donate here)!

†Under no way shape or form will the need to work while traveling stop Sparks from leaving. He will leave money raised or not. This page will update sporadically reflecting any and all monies raised online and spent by Sparks.
