"Me To We" Volunteering and Socially Conscious Traveling

Dear Edmonton Single Travelers,

Me to We » About Us
About Us
What is Me to We?

Me to We is an innovative social enterprise that’s built on a way of life: living we means walking softly, traveling lightly and making a difference in all your actions—small or large.

Me to We is about transforming people into world changers, one action and one experience at a time. It’s about taking the best practises of business and the compassion of charity and applying them to better ourselves, our communities and the world.

And it all starts with making better choices.

Me to We provides people with better choices for a better world, including socially conscious and environmentally friendly clothes and accessories, as well as life-changing international volunteer trips, leadership training programs and materials, an inspirational speakers’ bureau, and books that address issues of positive social change.

Me to We is designed to help support the work of our charitable partner Free The Children. Half of its annual profits on an annual basis are given to Free The Children with the other half reinvested to sustain the growth of the enterprise. Through Me to We, our dream is to bring Free The Children’s already low administrative rate down to zero, meaning 100% of all donations to Free The Children will go directly to projects.

Me to We measures the bottom line, not by dollars earned, but by number of lives we change, our contributions to support our charitable partner, and the positive social and environmental impact we make.

Think of it as a triple bottom line: Take a look around to see how Me to We is good for you, good for Free The Children and good for our world.

This is going to be an amazing way to find out how to volunteer and /or learn how to be part of a socially conscious traveler.

If you have any questions for me please give me a call on my cell at[masked]-2855.

You can find me at our meetup with blonde hair and a hot pink neon sign with "Edmonton Single Travelers".

    i encourage everyone to read the book "Damned Nations" by Samantha Nutt .... eye opening in the least and discusses many of the ways and means that giving/aid has gone wrong ... and RIGHT!

      Thanks for the name of that book, Margie! I have studied this issue as well, and would LOVE to have a gab session after this presentation with anyone interested!
