Paying it Forward

As a family, we're privileged to have the means to travel the world, so throughout our gap year we want to pay it forward in as many ways as we can. There are so many opportunities we've found already to give along the way from teaching and childcare to conservation and community development.

Walk to Give

As part of our commitment to pay it forward, we’ve chosen one charity we want to help by walking the Camino. This famous trek will take us from O’Cebreiro to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, a 155km journey we plan to make over ten days. For every dollar you give, we’ll pledge another dollar of our own to The Red Cross in the hope of raising much needed funds for refugees in Ukraine. Simply send us proof of your donation and we’ll send ours too.

Want Us To Help?

We’ve planned a number of volunteer opportunities throughout our trip but if you have a short term project you’d like help with or just want to shine a light on your organisation, drop us a line. If we can help out, we will.
