Spread Your Knowledge and Volunteer Commitment: Do Good As You Go

inukshukA little over a year ago I learned about The Muskoka Foundation and grew smitten with their mission, inspiring and equipping adventure travelers to “use what they know, to do good as they go” to create sustainable impact for the world, by using their own professional skills. In communities of need, when requested by the community and partners (a big deal for me, not “gifting” answers or charity upon communities based on our outsider “expertise,” but instead, responding to need and desire from within), the foundation provides workshops for children and adults, in entrepreneurship, IT, photography, arts, sports, music, and more.

They have nicely simplified and emboldened their message with the Do Good As You Go movement: to harness the energy and spirit of hundreds of volunteer explorers doing what they do best on behalf of communities round the world. The focus here is on experience: experienced travelers who are also experienced at some teachable and desirable skill. Muskoka is the connector, the liaison between inspired volunteers and individuals and groups in foreign countries right at the verge of huge breakthroughs. If you fit the profile–I’m guessing you want a piece of this. Reach out to the foundation and find out where they have active programs, or their target list for next dream nations to work in and impact in incredibly positive ways. Play the game big! The world is waiting for your gifts.
