Give twice this holiday season

The silly season is upon us again. Instead of scratching your head for gift ideas or joining the last-minute rush to the shops, here’s a thought. This year, give your loved ones something meaningful – healthcare for a child in Kenya or a warm bed for a homeless person in Russia; hearing aids for a kid in Cambodia or sewing equipment for women in Nepal.

The Intrepid Foundation’s Global Gifts provide vital support and comfort to people in need around the world. Ranging in price from AU $15 to AU $600, they’re a wonderful alternative to more chocolate or yet another pair of pajamas. And the best thing? Buy any Global Gift, and we’ll match the purchase dollar-for-dollar. So instead of providing one Tanzanian child with school books, you’ll be providing two. 

This festive season, give the gift of meaningful change – twice. Take a look at our range of Global Gifts here.

 

Who is The Intrepid Foundation?

Responsible travel is a big reason we do the things we do. It’s why, way back in 2002, we set up The Intrepid Foundation, Peregrine's not-for-profit organization. Its purpose was pretty simple: to empower travellers to make a difference and to help communities in the places we visit. Since it began, we’ve raised over AUD$5,000,000 for over 70 grassroots projects in 25 countries around the world, covering 100% of the administrative costs and doubling your donation, dollar for dollar*.

Adventure may be what we do; this is the why.

*Up to $1,000 per donor and a total of AUD$400,000 per financial year, excluding emergency appeals.
