Raising funds for your organization? Mexico has lots to offer

Raising funds for charity organizations is always a challenge. That many Saskatchewan residents volunteer their time to raise money for community and support programs in a number of areas is is almost legendary. Some of the best known initiatiaves include the Canadian Cancer Society's Relay for Life, or the Arthritis Society's Joints in Motion programs which features more of a travel-related element.

Recently, Great Excursions partnered with the Canadian Cancer Society to create Journey for Life, a trip to Mexico in February 2011 specially designed to meet the needs of people living with cancer and their caregivers -- a portion of the revenues from which will help fund the Cancer Society's programs.

Large projects like these requiring significant air capacity to be profitable and leave you vulnerable to the impact of airline schedule changes. This is where smaller, more niche types of initiatives -- let's say in the adventure travel sector -- might lend themselves to more diversified offerings for all tastes.

Living in Saskatchewan brings its own set added considerations. Our harsh winter climate instills in many residents a longing to get away during winter months. Baja California becomes then a particularly attractive destinations for those who might be willing to consider an active holiday that aims to raise funds for charity organizations. Any of the trips Great Excursions feature on its Adventures in Mexico product page would be suitable as a resource. This is food for thought for a future post.
