Hello fellow bloggers and readers…it’s been awhile! My partner Bev recently pointed out that I’m not blogging much anymore, only when I’m struggling or travelling it seems. Well, I’ll be travelling soon, so here we go! I’m heading to Thailand and Cambodia for 3 weeks to work as a volunteer in these countries. For me, this is the most rewarding and exciting way to travel.
I’m going with Bamboo, a well-regarded “voluntour” organization that makes a positive impact on the many countries and communities its volunteers travel to. I will be volunteering on community development and teaching projects in several villages, as well as in an elephant sanctuary. I would also like to help over and above my volunteer and financial contributions to the program. This could include helping students by providing school supplies or buying home supplies for families (e.g. mattresses, mosquito nets, or toilets)…wherever the need is greatest.
If this interests you in any way, perhaps you would consider making a small contribution to my modest $750 fundraising campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/JonathanInThailandandCambodia
If you are interested in following the story as it unfolds, I will be posting blog entries here on http://www.servingothers.com and on Facebook.
Many thanks for your time and interest. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
