Why we like volunteer forever
Billy and his team are doing a great thing in helping bring the cost of volunteering down by allowing people to manage a fundraising campaign for their forthcoming trip. Flights, insurance and ad-hoc costs can be quite prohibitive but Volunteer Forever helps people overcome such hurdles and empowers them to have an impact on communities throughout the world. Well done Billy and team for a great idea and platform!
