Giving Back to Our Communities

We’re excited to give back to organizations that make our cities so wonderful for our travelers.

For the first half of 2019, we’re working with organizations that help fight homelessness + hunger.

Until June, donations will go to the National Alliance for Ending Homelessness + the National Coalition for the Homeless, United States-based organizations addressing issues related to homelessness. You can help us reach our fundraising goal by donating through the below link.

Additionally, our team is volunteering with local organizations who are doing important work here in our hometown! Be sure to check out our blog for more information on these organizations.

a note from our founder

At Pack Up + Go, we believe that travel has healing properties. It acts as a much-needed break from day-to-day stress. It clears your mind, rejuvenates, and relaxes. Above all, it motivates you to see more of the world, to do more.

Extensive explorers ourselves, travel has not only acted as an introduction to new people, foods, and languages we would not normally encounter, but it has taught us about history, culture, and ways of life about which we may not learn organically. Travel encourages everyone to have an open mind and to step out of their comfort zone.

We’ve traveled to the far corners of the world, often wandering off the beaten path - realizing in the end that the United States has just as many destinations, oddities, and microcultures as anywhere else on Earth. Pack Up + Go is a celebration of our country’s expansive resources, and embodiment of open mindedness, spontaneity, and excitement.

Who says surprises are just for kids?
