Us & A Bus: One couple is spending 30 days in each state and raising money along the way

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (TENNESSEE VALLEY WEEKEND) - Matt & Grace walked Across America from California to South Carolina in 2020 and into 2021. Now, they’re spending 30 days in each state, raising money for different non-profits along the way.

They adopted the minimalist lifestyle -- sold all their stuff, are living on a bus -- but the coolest part is they are determined to spend 30 days in each state. Their first stop was in Arizona, second stop? The amazing Alabama. The couple joined TVL to talk all about it.

Right now, they are spending around 1 month in Alabama and have a goal to raise $5,000 for Light of the Village, a nonprofit in south Alabama. In light of this, the couple will be doing the Polar Plunge on January 1 if they raise all the money!
