Pack, Paddle, Ski Corp. is an amazing organization. They not only intrioduce people to the outdoors through local adventures in New York State, and take people to far flug locales across the globe for outdoor adventures that stay far away from tourists routes and allow you to experience local cultures up close, but they have a heart.

Over the years they have created Journeys of Inspiration to create a community of people to support cancer victims. They created Journeys of Solutions where people raise funds for scholarships and projects in needy places. And Volunteer Adventures where people travel to build houses, and help in orphanages and schools across the globe. Not just a travel adventure company, Pack Paddle Ski is a people helping organization with a world focus. Awe inspiring.

One of their latest projects has to do with providing water for school kids in drought stricken Africa. In the words of Bob Kuehl. President, Journeys of Solutions:  “As many of you may know, there has been an extended drought in East Africa. Tanzania has not been immune. We recently received an appeal from Bayo, the headmaster of the Tumaini Primary School in Kartu. We have been supporting the school, and sponsoring scholarships for children from the Shalom Orphanage to attend Tumaini. The school is in need of more water. They have drilled an exploratory bore hole and have reached good water, but at a great depth. Now they need the funding to construct a well. Journeys of Solutions has committed to help. If you would like to help with a donation, please visit http://www.journeysofsolutions.org and designate the donation as Tumaini Water Fund. Also, we will be holding a JOS fund raiser on November 5th at the New York Wine and Culinary Center in Canandaigua. More details will be available soon so hold the date.”

If you can, donate to this worthy cause. Or, get involved with any of the many outreach projects sponsored by Pack, Paddle, Ski. It’s a small world and your rewards for participating in the greater good will be many.
