HERE’S A VERY SCARY FACT:
Did you know that ‘diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.’ Hmmm??
Or that up to 1 billion people in our world live without water each day?!(https://my.charitywater.org/traveller-collective-1/traveller-collective-water-campaign)
Something I am passionate about is charity. As a resident of a first world country, I believe it’s our responsibility to act as compassionate global citizens and take part in small initiatives to reduce the burden on those who are less fortunate than as ourselves.
I have lived in countries where there is no hot water at my house and I have been guilty of complaining of this at times. But no water? NO WATER?! Think about that. Walking for three hours to collect unclean dirty water that causes nasty illnesses and in extreme cases, death. It’s scary to know that up to 1 billion people in our world live like this. Every single day. Why??? In 2015?
MEET DARRYL FROM ‘TRAVELLER COLLECTIVE.’
Darryl is an experienced world traveller. ‘The deeper I got into travel and the more places that I visited, my outlook began to shift. The extreme poverty that I continued to see was getting harder to swallow. It’s impossible to continue to see that disparity first-hand and not have something inside of you fundamentally change.’
‘So I started ‘Traveller Collective’ with a simple idea. To create a movement of people who love to travel and want to do something about this massive inequality. Something that inspires us to continue to explore this beautiful world while helping provide a basic necessity of life to those that need it most. It’s hard to comprehend that so many of us enjoy the privilege to explore every corner of this beautiful world while so many others don’t even have a basic necessity of life.’
WHAT IS ‘TRAVELLER COLLECTIVE??’
‘Traveller Collective’ is a charity based initiative designed by travellers for travellers. The goal is to raise $10 000 to facilitate clean water facilities to a community of around 300 people. This is Darryl’s own charity campaign that he has started under the ‘Charity Water’ Non-Profit Organisation. Basically Charity Water encourage people around the globe to start their own fundraising campaigns, to help achieve the goal of bringing clean water to a community around the globe. These guys are a non-profit organization that utilize a 100% funding approach. That means that every cent donated goes straight towards funding water projects around the globe.
LOVE TO TRAVEL TOO? HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP.
