Have you ever been inspired to volunteer abroad but been discouraged by program fees and the cost of getting to another country? Do you have time and energy to donate to a good cause but not a lot of money?
Here’s something that can get you where you want to go.
VFV is now partnering with FundMyTravel, a website dedicated to helping people raise money for meaningful travel experiences. This means volunteering, studying, interning or anything else that helps you make a positive impact on the world.
Here’s how it works. You create a Travel Campaign that lets potential donors know why you’re passionate about traveling, which program you’ve chosen and where you’d like to go. Then, you list your expenses such as program fees, airfare, visas and travel insurance. Once your campaign is complete, you can share it via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or just about any other social media to get your message out and start collecting funds.
Donors only need a credit card. FundMyTravel lets them choose which expense to fund, so they know exactly where their money goes. It also keeps track of how much money has been raised and lets you share updates with anyone interested in your campaign.
So if you’d like to volunteer with VFV but need some financial assistance, check this out!
