Here is a visual guide on how to complete the 8 Steps listed below. After viewing the guide, complete the 8 Easy Steps.
To submit your accommodation or tour company for inclusion on our website you must complete all the following steps in order. Submissions will not be considered until ALL 7 Steps have been completed.
Step 1. Make sure there is a prominent place on your website where your project(s) is clearly described. Placement in the footer does not fulfill this requirement.
Step 2. Have the CEO or GM of your Accommodation or Tour Company carefully read, sign and date our agreement (choose format: Word | PDF) and send via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep a copy for your records.
Once we have received the signed form from Step 2, we will confirm via email that your project fits our criteria. Then you can finish the application process by completing Steps 3-7.
Step 3. Place this wording below on the page where your project(s) is clearly described.
Step 4. Place our link and logo on the page where your project(s) is clearly described. Click here to find our link and logo. (Be sure our logo clicks through to our website.)
Step 6. Send us at least 4 high resolution photos of the people whom the project benefits. Photos of buildings are not accepted. The photos that work best in our photo arrays focus on individuals or small groups. Because of the overall size of the photo arrays on our website, images showing large groups don’t have as much impact. The physical size of the photos is also important. Photos sized at 15.25 cm x 10.2 cm with a resolution of 200 or above are ideal.
Step 7- Onboarding an accommodation or tour company participant requires a significant investment of time and resources. To help subsidize the cost of creating a page on our website with a link through to your website and then promoting this on social media, Pack for a Purpose requires that new participants pay a onetime administrative fee of $100 at time of registration. Please pay the fee through our PayPal account at this link and designate this is a registration fee.
