BlueFoot Travel Supports Pack for a Purpose
BlueFoot Travel is proud to become a member of an exciting initiative called Pack for a Purpose.
Pack for a Purpose, allows travellers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of local children and families.
Since 2010 ‘Pack for a Purpose’ travellers have taken over 115,841kgs (254,850 pounds) of supplies meeting essential needs in over 60 countries. Each project supported provides a detailed list of the supplies they need and Pack for a Purpose guides you how to pack what is needed in just 5lbs / 2,27kg.
Small Space. Little Effort. Big Impact.
If you would like to support a project when you sail to Bequia or Dominica with BlueFoot Travel please follow the links below to understand what supplies each project needs and how to pack them. We have arranged to drop your supplies with these companies and if possible we will also visit the projects to deliver the items you have brought.

- In addition, they are supporting local schools in and around Tourcari that have been impacted by Hurricane Maria. Items they are looking for are reading glasses for adults, toiletries, school supplies for primary school children, and children’s shoes. Since the hurricane, they have also been distributing solar lights and solar chargers.
At BlueFoot Travel we are very fortunate to be able to sail to incredibly beautiful islands across the Caribbean and meet and work with many of the wonderful islanders who live there. We look forward to having a positive impact on the lives of local children and families.
