As 2018 wraps up and clients begin planning their 2019 trips, why not suggest a trip that will help make the world a better place?
Travel has so many benefits on a personal level, but what if we told you there was a way to experience the trip of a lifetime while raising money for a good cause?
The Huma Charity Challenge does just that.
Since its inception back in 2013, Huma Charity Challenge, the fundraising arm of World Expeditions has raised more than $5 million dollars for charities around the world, including Can Too, GI Cancer, Oxfam, The Luke Batty Foundation and Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia.
Whether it’s tackling an ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, hiking the Great Wall of China or trekking to Everest Base Camp, Huma Charity Challenge has a vast array of inspiring adventures and challenges that will help you discover your inner philanthropist.
“When you sign up for one of our challenges, you are making a commitment to yourself to train and get physically and mentally fit, you are making a commitment to the charity to fundraise for their cause, and you are making a commitment to complete the challenge, whether it’s a trek, cycle or climb,” Huma Charity Challenge organiser, Fiona Windon said.
So, with this in mind, here are five Huma Charity Challenges that will make you look and feel good in 2019:
