Without further adieu, I introduce you to my fundraising page:
I feel so strongly about giving back to the world what it gives me every time I take my first steps in every country I've been in the past and the countries I cannot wait to explore in the future! I grew up with the huge love of wanting to help others and give in as many ways as I can: my time, money, clothes, shoes, food, etc! I believe when you give to the world without expecting anything in return, that is the greatest gift one can get!
Like I mentioned in a previous post, when I travel, I always give food, snacks, money/change, and sometimes the clothes off my back when I see an opportunity that would benefit another human being. I just thought that if I opened up my fundraising page, it would give the opportunity for those to either help me out and give as well, encourage others to do the same when they travel, or spread awareness of delving deeper into our travels and stepping out of our comfort zones!
There are tons of travelers in this world that board daily flights to explore the many breathtaking parts of this world and I know not one person returns to their homeland without a sense of change after experiencing life in a different part of the world.
This is how Travelers Giving Back will work:
I will keep everyone up to date of my travels and when I'll be heading out to a country through my Facebook page: Love A Traveler, Twitter: loveatraveler, Instagram: loveatraveler, and my fundly page (link above and left side panel!). That's when I will let anyone know I will be taking all proceeds and donated items to the country with me. I will research a neighborhood, local children and/or adult organization, or even someone I come across of my travels itself. I will post, mention, and show where all the proceeds and donations will go. That's important for both me and those who are giving to show that you can trust Travelers Giving Back and see where your heart is helping others.
For those who are in the state of California, I will hold garage sales and bake sales and have 100% of the proceeds go straight to my charity travels. You can participate by mailing in your donations or even joining me in helping making a difference in the lives of others!
For those located in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, I can mail treats if you are interested (I make pretty tasty treats, if you are wondering!;) and of course can mail in anything you no longer use to support this worthy cause of sharing love with the world!
If you are a fellow traveler and would like to partner up, LET ME KNOW! There are so many travelers out there and I hope to come together with you and everyone to make this happen and become alive! The more partners, the more places we can reach and make a difference!
I hope that I am able to inspire just one person to click on my fundraising link above, check out my page, donate, and share with everyone they know! It's my way of saying thank you to every country that teaches me certain things that I can't get anywhere else or in my own hometown. And if not, I hope I have inspired you to give back when you jet off to new lands in search of new beginnings, lessons, sites, and inspiration!
Thank you for your time and I hope you will join me in making the world a happy place, one travel at a time!
~Reima, Love A Traveler
