First and foremost, we want to say that we are deeply sorry that life got in the way of our philanthropic work. It’s been 3 years since we last did a campaign with Syrian refugee women and children in Jordan but we haven’t stopped fighting against other injustices right here at home. We realize that philanthropic passion projects are sometimes incredibly hard to sustain when other personal events in life shift your focus. The good news is, that when we created this non-profit organization we created it in order to do this type of work for the remainder of our lives.
Travel With Purpose through our founders public relations company, Guerrera Marketing & PR, will be partnering up with Latinx owned women’s clothing & lifestyle streetwear apparel brand, Viva la Bonita. Created by Rachel Gomez, a Latina born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, Viva La Bonita is rooted in self-empowerment with an emphasis on the Latina Community. Together will be launching an exclusive line of merch of which 60% of proceeds will be donated to our very own scholarship fund which focuses on assisting Black and Brown girls across the U.S. in accomplishing their goals and realizing their dreams. Through the purchase of the GUERRERA x VLB x TWP t-shirt and/or a monetary donation via our Go Fund Me campaign, you can change the course of the lives of young guerreras (female warriors) of color in our community who do not have the financial means to realize their dreams.
The Guerrera x TWP x VLB Scholarship Fund will be an ongoing campaign. Applicants can email us their stories explaining why and what they need financial assistance for and how much they need to accomplish their goal. Once an applicant is chosen to receive a scholarship, Travel With Purpose [501(c)3] will make a donation directly to the institution, company or person providing the specified services. *No monies will be donated directly to the scholarship recipients in order to ensure the legitimacy of the entries. To apply to the Guerrera x TWP x VLB Scholarship Fund please send a detailed email to firstname.lastname@example.org . Scholarship winners will be chosen at the end of each campaign cycle once we meet our designated financial goal.
