Those of us who have the opportunity to travel know how blessed we are. The people we meet along the way, and the experiences we share, enrich our lives and minds. If you’re like me, there are times when you want to give back, to make a difference in their lives. Let me tell you how. Next time you’re headed out on holiday, pack a few practical items to give away. (Or, during your trip, buy them at a local market. You’ll get a feel for the culture and the prices are low.) When you see how much joy and relief you provide, you’ll wonder why you haven’t done it before.
I have listed some suggestions below, but first, I want to recommend one indispensable device: the rechargeable Luci Inflatable Solar Light. In thousands of places around the world, communities live half their lives in darkness. Perhaps their home is in a remote area, or they are victims of natural disasters. Whatever the reason, you can give them the gift of light. Luci lights are compact, lightweight, waterproof, easy to carry and shine up to 18 hours on a single charge. Pack them without their box and they take up very little space.
Reading glasses (I pack a dozen in a reusable bag. They can literally change a life.)
Educational flash cards (numeric/alphabet)
Pens and markers
Art and school supplies
Bowls and cups
Large containers of water
Buckets (for produce or carrying water)
For information on how to purchase Luci lights, or ideas specific to your destination and the needs of the local community, contact our Tully Luxury Travel Designers. We are happy to help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
