Come to Bali, Help Us Build a Library & Travel With Us!
If you guys have been following me since my journey to every country in the world, you’ll have seen one of my best buddies, Josh, and I became obsessed with using social media for good. Less bragging, less making people feel bad about themselves and more constructive, ethical, but still epic travel. So we created the Give Back GiveAway, where we run awesome trips around the world, building charitable projects like playgrounds, dormitories, primary schools for rural communities.
So far, our projects have been run in Senegal, Gambia, Cambodia, Northern Thailand, India, Philippines, Tanzania and now next up is Nepal (SOLD OUT!) and then we’re off to BALI, to build a library in the rural north, followed by 10 days gallivanting through monkey forests, rice paddies and volcanoes until a big goodbye party in Canggu. And we want you to come and join us!
BALI TRIP DETAILS
May 4th – May 16th, 2019
16 travelers. Our trips sell out each time now, so we’ve had to limit the spots to 16 tickets. We have a return rate of almost 80%, so 4 out of every 5 travelers come back within 12 months for another trip, so we must be doing something right! That means that before we even release the next trips, 5-10 spots are already taken by our friends who we chat with before we officially release. For Bali, we have 10 spots left. First come, first served – hope to see you in Bali!
The full itinerary is available on our charity website here, but the basic gist is that we meet in Denpasar on May 4th (Bali’s international airport), then we head north to our project along with our other travellers. Normally there is about 16 of us, ranging in age between 24-44, but a few younger and older peeps are always welcome. We spend 3 full days finishing the hard work at the library, painting, shifting bricks, entertaining the kids followed by an opening ceremony to draw a line under 6 months of planning, construction, donations, and work.
Now it’s time to travel! We head east to Ubud, get lost in the monkey forests, hike through rice paddies, dive into waterfalls and drink cheap beers through Ubud. After that, it’s time to ascend Bali’s active volcano, Mount Batur, for sunrise. We make you earn those travel pics on GBGA trips! We’re already 11 days into the trip, so it’s time for one last hurrah. We head to Bali’s eastern coast for temples at sunset, inflatables at the pool and one last goodbye dinner before your teary goodbyes at the airport. Unless of course, you want to join Josh and me for an extra 3 or 4 days in Lombok (think Bali 20 years ago)!
Our partner community is based in Northern Bali, away from the tourist, and unfortunately the tourist dollars. The community has been struggling for years and we’ve promised to deliver their first-ever library. So with the help of your donations, your time, and your hardwork, we will indeed come good on that promise. The bulk of the work will be carried out by local engineers, but we’ll be there as it’s getting finished to add those finishing touches and make sure we get down within schedule, something that’s quite rare in these parts. Also, the final TLC we can apply in terms of furnishings, paintings, and cleaning up is the kind of work which understandably doesn’t get done normally, due to restricted budgets. So we can make sure they have a library to be proud of before we explore Bali.

WIN A FREE TRIP TO BALI:
Building projects across the globe is beautiful but funding them is tough. Along with the trip donations from our volunteers, we crowd fund the money to build the projects BUT there’s a pretty cool catch. Every donation adds you into a raffle, then we draw a winner out of a hat and someone comes on every trip FOR FREE. All you have to do is book your flights to Bali, and the rest of the $2100 trip is completely free! So please help us, donate, share, and hopefully you’ll win a free spot!
