Living the Adventure Philanthropist Life

Hi! Ever think about chucking it all and traveling the world? That's what I did during my 2-year global living and giving adventure where I visited all 7 continents and more than 60 countries volunteering with local humanitarian organisations along the way.

I'm in Melbourne and is giving a free talk about my experience, volunteering opportunities abroad and how to go about becoming an Adventure Philanthropist on a budget. Christened "The New Philanthropist" by National Geographic Traveler magazine, you can check out for more info. Hope to see you there!

    Huge congratulations on the book Erin, and especially the philanthropic adventures you achieved overseas - sounds amazing!! Wish I could make it, but still very excited to check out you book at some point (I'm currently writing a book on stories/lessons from travelling and volunteering too).

    Enjoy spreading your incredible adventures.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
