LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A man who actually sold his life for cash needs help making a few more bucks, but not for his pocket this time.

Back in 2008, Ian Usher did something a little crazy and sold his entire life for roughly $290,000 on eBay. The wacky sale included his house, belongings, friends, family, and job.

He’s since been traveling the world with the money he made, trying to complete 100 of his life’s goals in 100 weeks.

They include juggling fire clubs, swimming with hammerhead sharks in Japan, and getting into a tomato fight in Spain.

Recently, Usher added another task to his list.

He’s hoping to raise $50,000 for the Bowel Cancer and Digestive Research Institute by selling photos from his world travels for $20 a pop on 100goals100weeks.com.

While he’s been able to accomplish his other life goals on his own, Usher says this one is different because it requires help from giving people.
