As Pack for a Purpose’s only luxury travel partner, Luxury Link is working with the nonprofit to raise funds for the organization and grow their hotel partnerships. The mission of Pack for a Purpose is to encourage travelers to set aside a few non-essential items in their luggage and use the space instead for much needed medical, school or anti-poaching supplies. Pack for a Purpose identifies the specific items needed in each community and the hotels facilitate the donations, by delivering the supplies directly to the organization or arranging for the guest to visit the donation location.
“Pack for a Purpose aligns with Luxury Link’s core values and passion for travel. They have made it easy for any traveler to make a big impact on the lives of children in the destinations they visit. By simply leaving that extra pair of shoes at home and packing four deflated soccer balls or 400 pencils instead, you can make a meaningful contribution,” said Diane McDavitt, Luxury Link Travel Group’s president and co-founder.
