Whet Travel gives back to each destination visited through Whet Foundationâ€™s program Destination Donation. Everyone on the ship will be asked to bring school supplies, clothing and other items generally for an orphanage or a local charity that works with underprivileged children. Then volunteers will be asked to help stuff backpacks to deliver to the kids and play with them. We are working to extend the program to take the orphans on to the ship while we are docked in the destinations to show them the ship and a program onboard of whatâ€™s possible and get them excited about life through this once in a lifetime experience. Many of the volunteers rate their Whet Foundation experience as the highlight of their cruise.
Whet Foundation provided packed backpacks to 40 children at the Ciudad de Angeles orphanage in Cozumel, Mexico on February 2nd, 2014. 35 volunteers to attend the trip, hearing about the genesis of the orphanage, its resident children, and the current construction project. Ciudad de Angeles provides a safe & healthy environment for orphaned, abandoned, abused and needy children living in Mexico.
We are proud to announce we’ll be going back this year. Â For more information on howÂ to get involved,Â emailÂ firstname.lastname@example.orgÂ
