Did you know you can make a big impact on the lives of children around the world if you Pack for a Purpose?

How did we not know about this organization? 

It’s such a simple way for us to use available space in our luggage to provide supplies to communities we visit – and we just had to share our good luck in finding out about it!

By just making room for 5 pounds, you can bring:

– 400 pencils or
– 5 deflated soccer balls with an inflation device or
– A stethoscope, a blood pressure cuff and 500 band-aids

It’s easy! Go to the Pack for a Purpose website and find your destination. They’ll let you know what supplies are needed in that area and how they will benefit the community you are visiting.

It adds up! Since their inception in December 2009, the global travel community has donated more than
30,000 pounds of needed supplies to schools, clinics and orphanages worldwide.

How did we find out about this wonderful charity?

When we went to Costa Rica we stayed at the amazing Parador Resort & Spa.

We already knew that, as an eco-resort, they pride themselves on their commitment towards sustainable tourism, community outreach and education.

Then we saw this:

“We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and bring supplies for area schools or medical clinics in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.”

Now, happily, we can say:

And we will do so from now on!

Gypsy Nesters

David and Veronica James have spent the last thirty eight years together, ever since a boy from the heartland met a Valley girl on the west coast and took off to Nashville for a wild ride through parenthood and the music business. After sending three kids out into the big wide world they set out to find it for themselves, selling everything and taking off in a beat up old motorhome. Along the way they accidentally created the top travel blog GypsyNester.com and authored the book Going Gypsy: One Couple's Adventure from Empty Nest to No Nest at All (Skyhorse 2015). In the past ten years they have visited and written about fifty seven countries on six continents. They have no plans to slow down.
