Since our partnership in March 2012, the Interim CEO Julie Bell, the President Diane McDavitt and three other employees at our partner Luxury Link all packed for a purpose when they travelled for business and pleasure. They travelled to Costa Rica, Mexico, Cambodia and India bringing a total of over 45 kilos of requested supplies to community-based projects on three continents.
Our Partner, Nina Patel owner of Vacations That Matter continues to pack for a purpose. On their family vacation to Costa Rica this past August, Nina and her family brought supplies for one of the projects supported by The Villa Hermosa Guesthouse, Proyecto Asis, an animal shelter.
The supplies consisted of 7 kilos of dog collars, leashes, Dog brushes and combs, kong and bird toys, some animal ear medication and other items.
Nina and her daughters spent a half day at the animal shelter volunteering and in general having a wonderful time and a meaningful local experience.
Nina and her family did not stay at the Villa Hermosa Guesthouse, but having found the project supported by them on the website; they volunteered and delivered the supplies directly. If you do not wish to deliver supplies directly, even if you are not staying at the location on our website, every place on our website will be happy to accept the requested supplies for their project and deliver them for you!
