Philanthropy is one of the core principles of Mockingbird. We believe that giving back can and should be an integral part of any principled business. And we hope that by making philanthropy part of the experience of travel, we will inspire our travelers to remain engaged and to continue making contributions to the world, long after they’ve returned home.
So while you’re out shopping for Aunt Sally, consider making a gift to the world, too! It can make a world of difference in someone’s life. If you’re not sure where to give, here are some of the organizations that Mockingbird supports (you can read last year’s gift guide to find out why we focus on global health):
Shot@Life works to ensure that children around the globe have access to life-saving vaccines.
The Against Malaria Foundation distributes insecticide-treated bed nets in sub-Saharan Africa, to reduce the incidence of malaria and child mortality.
The International Committee of the Red Cross provides humanitarian protection and assistance to vulnerable people around the world.
Population Services International helps people in the developing world lead healthier lives and plan families they desire.
Thank you for your support of these worthwhile causes. Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas!
