THANKS IN GIVING

    We're coming into the season of giving, and what better way to give thanks for all you have than by supporting those working to support themselves? We've committed to Lightness's Women's Projects for our volunteer adventure in February, and we need your help to reach our goal of funding 2 houses, a duka (store in Swahili), and inside toilets for existing homes. Thanks to the generosity of a donor, there is a matching gift in effect for all contributions made by November 30th! Check out the video from our trip to Lake Eyasi in May to learn of the impact your gift will have, and consider giving thanks through contribution.








    UPCOMING ADVENTURES

    There's still a chance to experience the world with us in 2019! We've had 2 spots open on Scotland's Kintyre Way, and Reed has a few spaces left on his Photo Bhutan trip in October. Perhaps you'd like to stay closer to home and head west with Rick on an Extreme Grand Canyon adventure, mountain biking the White Rim in Utah, or relax on a houseboat in Lake Powell! 2020 is full of adventure as well- join Yusuf and Jaima on a journey up Mt. Kilimanjaro, go with Rick back to Morocco, on a packraft in Big Bend, 4x4 Adventure in Southwest Australia, or a multi-sport adventure in the Azores. Reed is off to Easter Island & Patagonia, as well as to Cuba to document the life of the Cuban people. If any of these interest you, email us and we'll get the information packet as soon as it's complete!





    LIVE UPDATES FROM THE HIMALAYAS

    Rick is wandering under the world's highest peaks. He and his friends are trekking from tea hut to local lodge through the beauty of Nepal, on their way to Everest Base Camp. He's sharing his adventures on our live updates. Check daily for fun photos and great stories! There's also a log of all our old posts, so feel free to browse past trips to be inspired to have an adventure of your own!






    FINDING JOI IN MEMORY

    Ten years ago Rick Cullinan was preparing to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro as part of JOI. Now his daughter is doing the same in his memory. Courtney, pictured on the right in the photo with some training partners, will be embarking on a journey to the top of Africa in March, 2019. Her memorial climb is fundraising for survivorship at Wilmot Cancer Center. To learn more about her efforts to get to the summit and find out how you can help, visit her sponsorship page.







    ADVENTURE AS YOU WISH

    It's time to dream! Is there an adventure that you've always wanted to have, a place you've always wanted to visit, or a culture you've always wanted to experience? So often we hear, "That trip is on my bucket list!" or "I've promised myself I am going to do that one day." As Rick slowly moves into retirement, he's hoping to spend his days creating for others the connections he's made in his decades of adventure- bringing together community, culture, nature and self. Let us know what adventure you've been dreaming of, and we can make those connections for you.
