There are the stories about colleagues during the Cold War bringing extra blue jeans when traveling to the former USSR. Or candies and comics for children in Mexico. And all over the industry, we're already donating used hotel soap to be given a new life with those in need.
It's now a good deal easier to determine which specific items you could bring along on your next trip to donate with the most impact. Howso?
Step 1. Visit Pack For a Purpose
Step 2. Select your destination
Step 3. Learn about local organizations and items needed that you can bring along--y'know, since you're already headed that way and have 10 pounds of extra weight allowance in your luggage.
Step 4. Scale the program to fill out all of your meeting/convention/trade show shipments with supplies that will change the lives of those in your host destination.
