Backpacking for Good: The End (for now)

My time in Serbia is over and I just want to say a massive thank you to those who have supported the work we are doing out here. When I decided to come back out a month ago I had the idea that I could raise $10,000 in 4 weeks to buy supplies for this cause. Without any real marketing or expertise in fundraising that seemed like an outlandish idea.

Well folks, the power of the internet is strong and amazingly that goal was reached! I have received a total of $10,282 plus $5,203 from the last trip to Serbia.  Absolutely incredible. As a whole our team has raised well over $100,000 that has gone 100% to the refugees in need. We have purchased thousands of socks, gloves, hats, blankets and distributed nearly 30,000 bags of food in the last 30 days.

I would also like to say a special thank you to Khalsa Aid for the continuous support. We called for help when our donations ran out and they answered spectacularly. Sending funds and volunteers to help us distribute aid twice. Because of Khalsa we were able to continue our mission. I couldn’t be prouder to work with this organization and hope I get that chance again in the future.

To everyone who supported us, Thank you. We literally could not have done it without you.
