Our Story

We are a family of 7 who fell in love with traveling the world.  At first, our passion began with sharing our stories of where we traveled and adventures we had. Providing stories and tips, we wanted to touch the lives of others by inspiring travel ideas for families like ours. One day we had an idea to change our Christmas traditions. We thought "What if we found others in need and we gave to them instead of receiving gifts in the traditional way?" In the beginning it was simple. Things like candy or small gifts to children in other countries who went without. Each year as December would approach we would be placed on the path of others in need and our projects grew bigger. Our purpose began to grow! With each connection we made, the stronger our intentions became. An idea was formed that gave rise to a dream. We would take our travels and adventures and give them real purpose. Our family travel blog became the landing place for our charity project! Now we seek others around the world who are in need, both animals and people alike. Not just in December, all year long! By touching the lives of others, we create connections and friendships all over the globe. With each act of love we hope to improve the lives we touch and inspire the lives we share our stories with. We hope that the inspired will also reach out and help others creating a ripple effect of change!
