What is the GiveBack GiveAway??
Just like you guys, we love to travel, and we’re very privileged to be able to do so, so we figured it would be even better if travel wasn’t only about the popular sights but also an opportunity for all of us to give something back.
This is why we created the ‘GiveBack GiveAway’. We work on community development projects all around the world to improve the lives of those who need it. The way we fund these projects is through donations from awesome people like yourself!
The really cool part though, is we take a portion of the funds we raise to bring one lucky person who donates, with us on the trip!!
How it Works
A FREE trip. Sounds too good to be true right?! Nope, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to travel so we open this up to people everywhere on the globe.
We ask that you make a donation of either $10 or $25 to the cause and we will put your name into pot. Once our campaign is finished we will collect all the names and randomly select one lucky person to come on this trip with us completely FREE! No joke, flights, accommodation, and activities are included for you!
The Experience of a Lifetime
2015, our trip to Senegal, was surging funds and trade into a small community by having local carpenters build new tables for women who sold their crafts, produce and daily items in the market. 2016, we built a playground and created a sustainable income by donating bikes to a school in Cambodia. These projects were a huge success, thanks to people like you and again we are bringing our efforts to those in need. This year to Thailand.
This year’s trip will span over two weeks taking us to NorthernThailand. You’ll experience places, culture and people unlike any trip you’ve ever taken. On top of that, you’ll be on the ground working with us to make a difference and meet the people whose lives we are impacting.
This is what we do - This is where we go
Since Myanmar underwent its first democratic elections, the ethnic tribes on the Thai side of the border have felt the repercussions dramatically. The vast majority of charities, projects and NGO's instantly entered Myanmar, leaving the Burmese migrants in Mae Sot and it's surroundings instantly neglected and underfunded. This has left many schools searching for the wherewithal they need to provide equipment for their students and classes. Once again the GiveBack GiveAway will be providing the students with essentials they need to learn in the classroom as well as building a playground for the kids of the school and community to benefit from. All kids should have fun at school to create a positive learning environment. We aim to give that to them.
Starting in Bangkok, Thailand and then heading North, this year’s trip will span over two weeks taking us through some of Northern Thailand’s most magnificent locations. We will journey first to the border town of Mae Sot where we will begin the GiveBack GiveAway 2017 projects and then continue to the pristine and adventurous landscapes of Northern Thailand.
Project is from May 28th - June 10th 2017

Who We Are
The GiveBack GiveAway is headed by Johnny and Josh, just two guys who love travel and believe the world is a better place if we all help each other out. We have our good friend and projects manager, Carl, on board again who has years of experience as an NGO worker in the region. Check out our bio’s here.
Long Story Short
It's simple - Donate to make a world of difference to a community in need and possibly join us for free to be part of it.
Not one of us will be taking ANY profit from any of the money raised, nor will we be using it to fund our travels. We really put 100% of your donations into the projects and to fund one lucky supporters trip to come with us.
By making a donation you will be helping change many lives for the better and one person who supports this project will be there to see it first hand.
So to help the cause and to enter donate the following:
$10 - enters your name in 1 time.
$25 - enters your name in 3 times.
Please help us to reach our goal again. And good luck! Maybe we’ll be seeing you in May!!
