Hi Adventure Philanthropists!

A short time ago, I heard from my friend Thorsten, who I met traveling in Argentina several years ago. He wrote:
 
“Hi Erin... Have a question for you: I was in Nepal this year and…I would like to donate a small amount to a project in Nepal. Can you recommend a specific project?”
 
My response to Thorsten was to check out Empowering Women of Nepal, a nonprofit organization associated with 3 Sisters Trekking in Pokhara.

You can also find Nepali projects via GlobalGiving.org, UniversalGiving.org and Give2Asia.org, three intermediaries that prequalify global nonprofit organizations that meet American fiduciary standards.
 
Have a question too? Always happy to hear from y’all and share what I know about adventure philanthropy!
 
And now for the articles this week:

New Post  > Helping End the Dog Meat Trade

My Coboat crewmates and I wanted to do some local philanthropic giving. As we looked around the boat it became obvious that one thing we had in abundance (beside good cheer!) was food.

Fav Post > MESSAGE: London

My last visit to London was about 3 years ago and “The City” was hopping! While I’ve been to London before, this time I spent time exploring neighborhoods like Earlsfield, Islington, Highgate, Greenwich, Stratham, Brixton, and Tooting. A good sampling for sure! Here’re my 7 insider picks for the city of London:

Photo of the Week > Havana Hijinks, Cuba

 

I love this photo of me and my tour guide Jeff. That was our first night partying on the Malecón, the esplanade that wraps around Havana. Every night, the young and old come out to enjoy the light breeze, drink a little rum, dance and sing. As you can tell, I’m feeling right at home! Photo by Barbara Wein.

Whew – just got back a day ago from a fabulous time in Puerto Rico! And I have to say, some of the nicest people anywhere!

But no time to sit and ponder my last visit to paradise because I’m thinking of scouting out again next weekend for an in-depth exploration of the Mojave Desert.

What’s that saying again? Ah yes -- No rest for the wicked!

See ya on the road,
