This holiday season we’re reflecting on all of the incredible people, places, and things we’re thankful for during our “5 Days of Thankfulness” gratitude list.
Day One: Service Partners
Without a doubt, our service partners are the reason why we travel every summer. Our community-based partnerships allow us to serve in meaningful, unique ways which inherently leads to once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Day Two: Travel Stories
We’re thankful for all those incredible travel stories we’ve picked up over the years. Spontaneous dance parties in the rain, hiking through the jungle to find secret waterfalls during our overseas adventure travel in Costa Rica, searching for the best local snacks in China’s street markets – traveling opens our world to a whole new cast of characters and stories!

From grub worms collected in the Amazon rainforest to Naan and Kafta in India, food is a major part of travel. We’re thankful for travel and the opportunity to try all the weird snacks and delicious international meals the world has to offer!
