Supporting Local Albany Community Hospice

“Imagine making money for Hospice without lifting a finger, without giving up a minute of your time and without personally making a donation!”

Total Funds Raised:  $1140.00

That can now be a reality through Travel With Purpose!

A message from John and Nilla Spark…

Having owned a number of travel agencies since 1985, it has become increasingly important for us to find ways of contributing to the local community which has been so good to Travel With Purpose.

Last year I read the inspirational book “Thankyou”. A story of 3 young Australians who set out with no business experience, no money, and a huge drive to make a difference for communities less fortunate than ours.

Each member of our team also read “Thankyou” and collectively we agreed to embark on the journey of developing a pathway that Travel With Purpose could also support the Albany community.

This is how the Travel With Purpose Charity Program was born.

Simply put…

Each year, Travel With Purpose invests thousands of dollars in the media and on marketing.

We thought… how about partnering with select local charities, such as Hospice, who could promote us and in turn receive a donation for each booking made with Travel With Purpose.

The best part is, this means our marketing spend will start going to Hospice rather than various media channels. You don’t pay any extra for your travel, yet have the added comfort of knowing you are doing a lot of good by giving to Hospice. A classic WIN/WIN!

Have you ever wondered what actually happens inside a hospice…

“So what actually happens in this place?” Simon asked, his question caught me off guard.

 Trying to understand where he was coming from, I replied “What do you mean?”.

“Well I’ve been here for a week and I’m still not sure what actually happens in the hospice,” Simon said, still looking back at me, searching for an answer.

Simon had been admitted to the hospice a week earlier, as he was struggling at home with the symptoms from advanced liver cancer but was now able to move freely and sip cups of tea without pain and nausea.
