Pack for a Purpose
is an initiative we are working with to help grow the awareness of it here in NZ.
There is need everywhere and often travellers wish they could make meaningful contributions to the places they visit to say ‘Thank you’
Pack for a Purpose gives your clients the opportunity to find out before they depart what may be needed in the country they will be visiting.
By going to the PFAP website clients can look up lodgings or tour operators in the countries they are travelling to and see the community projects they support.
Here they will also find the ‘wish’ list of items the project needs for instance educational supplies, medical supplies etc…
I am also looking to grow the number of lodgings and tour operators in Asia and the Pacific , popular holiday destinations for Kiwis.

Pack for a Purpose is a nonprofit organization.
The link to the website is: and here is the link to the e-brochure

My love of travel just keeps growing. Europe is one of my favourites – every time I go I like to go somewhere new. The best part is then coming back and helping you discover the same wonderful places.

Family holidays with a bit of action are my favourite holidays - from catamarans in the exquisite Tahitian waters to condos in New Caledonia for a taste of all things French. I loved my holiday to Jericoacoara in Brazil - an oasis in a national park with sand dunes & idyllic conditions for windsurfing. With 27 years in the travel business, I love sharing my experiences to help create wonderful holidays for you.
