Wildlife Conservation in Asia

My name is Molly, and this Summer I will be volunteering through the GIVE organization to take a 27 day voyage ot SouthEast Asia. I will experience Thailand, the gateway to SE Asia, before crossing over the border into Laos, the best-kept secret in SE Asia. In Laos, I will travel from the elaborate temples and French architecture of Luang Prabang to the rugged mountainous landscape of Sop Chem village to volunteer at a wildlife sanctuary, meditate with monks in a monastery, zip-line through the forest canopy, and empower rural communities every step of the way! GIVE’s SE Asia Package will expand my positive impact and allow me to experience everything this beautiful and fascinating region of the world has to offer.

GIVE's volunteers work on sustainable development projects, that are designed to make a lasting difference: Through improving infrastructure, like basic structures and facilities. Your dollar will aid in the implentation of roads and buildings, and could increase educational opportunities by aiding in the construction of school houses. It will Implement freshwater systems and protecting endangered wildlife.

We partner closely with our host communities to drive these changes, so that when we are gone, our impact can continue.

Don't you wish that your dollar could do that?

Let's say you donate a dollar to this gofundme fundraising mission: you will know exactly where you dollar will go.

Think of you donating as a funnel:

1 dollar goes to my gofundme account, and then straight into the Give foundation. That dollar is turned into a shovel, and then makes it's way right back into my hands.

It is turned into the cement that will become the foundation of a home, or a school house. It could become materials for an endangered species habitat.

Your dollar will go directly from your wallet, to the people who need it the most.

Your dollar could mean water for a family; not just a dollars worth of water, but the opportunity to an accessible, long term supply.

Your dollar could mean education for a child; not just one class, but a program for continuous education. 

Your dollar could be the difference between the existence, or extinction of a species.

It could be the conservation of the countries Thailand and Laos. Not just for the time that your dollar sends us there, but long after we are gone, when our impact remains.

Your continuous impact.

So think about what you could do with a dollar. Do you want your dollar to stretch across the world?

Any contribution is greatly appreciated. Your support will allow me to indulge in an enlightening cultural exploration, all while working tirelessly to create an infrastructure for lasting, sustainable change for the people that need it most.
