Pack For A Purpose’s mission is to positively impact communities around the world by assisting travelers who want to bring meaningful contributions to the destinations they visit. There is need everywhere in the world; however, it is sometimes difficult to identify specific needs in places far from home. They believe people fortunate enough to travel to other countries often wish they could make meaningful contributions to help meet the needs of the places they visit. Such contributions are one way of expressing appreciation for the experiences and hospitality they enjoyed in other lands.
Their goal is to assist travelers who want to say thank you in this manner or who simply want to expand their generosity beyond their own communities. The supply lists for destinations on their website are provided directly by the local community-based projects which receive and use the supplies, enabling travelers to make informed decisions and to bring items which meet the needs of those who will be using them.
