Numbers are just a type of metric; however, when those numbers record the generosity of travelers across the globe, they are more than just a metric!
The numbers below are a measure of how easy and meaningfully travelers can make a Big Impact in the communities they visit. These numbers also demonstrate people’s fundamental sense of community and how in a global age it extends beyond one’s home.
Pack for a Purpose is delighted to report our metrics:
In all areas, our numbers are continuing to grow! Since the beginning of January 2014, we have added 75 new accommodations and tour companies to the website (49 since the end of March).
