The adventure company’s ceo, Sue Badyari, says the impetus behind the Challenge was to encourage people to lead healthier lifestyles, to become global citizens, and to go deeper during their travel experiences, while raising funds for great causes.Charities which will benefit from the partnership include RUOK, Redkite, SolarBuddy, Foodbank and Youngcare.The unique collaborative initiative is designed to harness the collective energy of adventurous travellers looking for a way to give back while they travel, and consists of 12 iconic adventures, each of which is tailor-made for the Million Dollar Challenge and timed to operate during the optimum time for that challenge. World Expeditions is offering one challenge a month between January 2020 to December 2021 (24 months) to destinations as diverse as Tasmania, Vietnam and Cambodia, Peru, Nepal, Europe, Africa, China and New Zealand.Travellers book their trips exclusively at Flight Centre, with World Expeditions managing ground arrangements and Go Fundraise offering advice about fundraising. World Expeditions will donate the first $100 to each participant at the time of registration.“We know that the power of people to forge change can and does happen,” Ms Badyari said. “Our vision is to provide a platform for travellers to use their collective voice to raise awareness and funds for each of these worthwhile charities.“With a maximum of 20 travellers each month for two years and each traveller raising at least $2000, we are on track to raise $1 million dollars for charity.”To learn more about the Challenge destinations and itineraries/departures call World Expedition on 1300 720 000, visit worldexpeditions.com or visit a Flight Centre outlet.IMAGE: Twisted Lakes, Cradle Mountain, Tasmania/Adrian Eglinton – World Expeditionslast_img read more
