Imagining a vacation brings to mind many of the same destinations over and over again, right? Beautiful Hawaii, California, Florida, maybe an escape to the mountains of Colorado, the ancient beauty of Europe, dreamy Tahiti, and more.
How many emotions do you feel throughout the process of packing for vacation? Happiness, excitement, worry, uncertainty, frustration, major excitement… A lot goes into packing, so it’s understandable that many emotions are felt during.
How about adding one more feeling to the mix? Compassion. Many vacationers aren’t aware that they have the incredible opportunity to Pack For a Purpose. To bring with them items that will bring joy to those in need. Alongside the bikinis and sunglasses can be games, clothing, and grooming supplies for organizations badly in need of them.

And then there are the travelers who visit a destination to experience an event. There’s something extremely exciting about going to a festival or celebration somewhere exotic and far from home.
