Our 2-year anniversary is right around the corner and big changes are afoot. Today we received news that our application to become a nonprofit corporation has been approved!
Founded in September 2018, we formed as an LLC with plans to become a niche travel publisher. However, we quickly discovered an interest in pursuing opportunities that went well beyond books.
Our new and improved mission aims to shape a generation of explorers who will one day transform the world. We recognize the value of travel as an experiential education and feel strongly that it should be accessible to all families. Travel can foster empathy, build confidence, and it supports a more tolerant global perspective that benefits us all. It can change how kids view the world and everyone in it.
From the very beginning, we have worked hard to connect families with opportunities for virtual travel through hands-on crafts and activities. Last month, we debuted our very first children’s book, Traveling the World with Mom. It is clear that we are drawn to meaningful work that doesn’t always translate to strong profit margins.
Now we are turning to you—our friends, partners and fellow travelers—for support. Please, consider making a donation so that we may continue our work to inspire little explorers everywhere.
We have a very strong foundation from which to build. In the years ahead we have plans to expand our programming to include a travel podcast for kids, virtual tours, and even travel grants for low-income families. YOU can play a vital role in this transformation and help us bring the gift of travel to kids everywhere.
I thank you for your continued passion, enthusiasm, and support.
