Traveling for fun is always an exciting adventure, but traveling for charity can be too!
The whole world is connected, which means there is no shortage of organizations and groups that need everyone’s help. 7MilaMigliaLontano is here to help those organizations with their travel plans across the world. 7mml creates different travel plans across the world to visit different organizations in those parts of the world, and they aim to lend their time and help where they’re needed. The volunteers aim to cover the most ground they can on each journey, and their journeys connect to make one long trip around the world.
7mml drives most of their journeys, and at their ending point they meet those volunteering for the next leg of the trip. It’s similar to a track race, each group hands the baton (cars/supplies/equipment) to the next runner (volunteers). Donors can head to their homepage and donate any amount, and they are shown how many miles their donation is purchasing to help further each trip. The trips span each continent, starting in Canada and ending in Hong Kong. The seven trips in this cycle are supporting: Fonda Zione Ant, Emergency, Casa Delle Donne, Amici Della Zizzi, Coopi, Cesvi, and Centro Aiuti Per L’etiopia. When buying miles, organizations are able to receive some of the help they need. 7mml is a journey around the world to taste life in different ways. It’s a journey around the world to help the helpers.
