Scott's campaign for Pack For A Purpose Inc

Want to join me in making a Big Impact? Ten years ago, my wife, Rebecca, founded Pack for a Purpose. She hoped by her 70th birthday, this year, it would become a truly fiscally sustainable organization. Please join me in making this a reality – not only for Rebecca, but also for the hundreds of community projects across the globe.

The award-winning globally recognized nonprofit Pack for a Purpose assists travelers who want to take meaningful contributions to the destinations they visit. The website provides current needs lists for over 500 projects in more than 60 countries. Since 2010 travelers have taken over 156,717 kgs (344,777 pounds) of supplies, meeting essential needs for community projects around the globe. Supported projects include education, health, child welfare, animal welfare, and socio-economic development.

When Pack for a Purpose went live on the web in December 2009, there were 29 participants in 15 countries. Now, in 2019, Pack for a Purpose has over 430 Participants in over 60 countries around the world. Pack for a Purpose has been an all-volunteer organization but is now trying to become fully sustainable and hire two full-time employees to manage the website and expand its outreach. All funds donated will be used in the sustainability drive.
