Please share this assignment with other bloggers.

Brand or business name:

Joost Vandebrug and the Lost Boys

Please tell us about the product or company you would like the bloggers help with? 

For the past 3 years I have been been pouring my life into a very special project called Cinci Lei, it follows the life of 5 boys (Nicu (12), Stefan (11), Costel (15), Liviu (15) and Andrei (16)) who inhabit tunnels underneath the streets of Bucharest.

“A teenage utopia of freedom, rebellion and lawlessness is set in a parallel society, fuelled by destructive drugs and little state or parental protection.”

I have been documenting the Lost Boys since early 2011. Over the years they have told me their incredible stories and I have seen the coming of age of a generation set against a backdrop of drug addiction, powerful friendships, orphanages, harsh winters and boiling summers.

Most recently I have managed to get them a room! Which is great news -right before the summer. In an update on the kickstarter page you can read about it and see pictures of us cleaning the room and getting it ready for winter etc.

So I have started a kickstarter campaign to get this project off the ground. Please visit the link to see my intentions. You can watch a video and you can read Nico’s and the other boys stories.

What is the blogging assignment?

I am looking for bloggers who want to support this project and the Lost Boys by bringing attention to it. It really means a lot to everyone involved to make this project succeed.

What type of blogs are you looking for?

I guess photography blogs and anthropology are the first that spring to mind, however, I believe this is a project that will touch many people over many different fields and lifestyles.

Preferred geographic location of the blogger:


How might you compensate the blogger?

Getting to keep the product

How else might you compensate the blogger?

Just like the £25 reward on the kickstarter project page, I will send you a personal postcard from Bucharest with a small thank you note from one of the lost boys.
