Stuffyourrucksack is an online community that helps responsible travellers make a practical difference to the lives of those in developing countries that have so little, and deserve so much more. They provide a map dotted with projects from all the world, that list down what items these initiatives need. If you’re visiting that country or area, you can now stuff your rucsac or luggage with these items and never again say, “I wish I’d known what that project wanted before I went on holiday”.
Of interest to microvolunteers is the fact that if you come across a project along your travels wanting needy items, you can now add that worthy cause to the map and forewarn others before they travel. Information you will need is the charity’s name and description, location, and what it requires. It not only has the potential to help the charity, but it also helps travellers of a philanthropic nature to be better prepared before their journeys.
