ImpacTrip is a tour operator which promotes Responsible Travel Experiences in Portugal. Discover Portugal on a responsible and unforgettable trip that combines the best of traveling like a local with having a positive social and environmental impact on the local communities. Get to know the locals, absorb Portuguese culture, eat tasty and healthy and get the best out of your holidays on trip that will make your stay a meaningful experience.
We are a social enterprise launched in 2013 by two dedicated entrepreneurs that want to change the way people travel. With the increasing number of people looking for alternative travel experiences to explore Europe, ImpacTrip want to be a fresh and positive option for these sustainable travelers. We really want to offer the most unique travel experiences in Portugal. We won’t change the world in one day but if we can change one person’s life it is worth trying.
Sometimes it feels like the biggest obstacle to going abroad is financing your trip, but that doesn't have to be the case! ImpacTrip has teamed up with FundMyTravel so that participants can make their very own fundraising pages online. This way, you have a creative platform to communicate personal messages, keep your audience engaged with your travel plans, and collect the funding to help make this experience a possibility.
With a simplified payment system, participants collect funds right to their secure PayPal or WePay account. There is a solid team of experienced travelers and professionals at FundMyTravel, who are here to offer campaigners support, including insights for fundraising success. You can check out a few tips below before clicking the button above, to get started!
Just like travel, fundraising is about an exchange - so whether you send them post cards, create a video-diary, start a blog, or grow a photo gallery - make sure to share these things with your networks in exchange for their donations and online support! You can check out more unique and creative ideas on our Fundraising Toolkit.
Using Social Media, writing Personal Emails and sharing consistent Updates on your campaign are essential steps for reaching that fundraising goal. You can plan the most inspiring trip, upload a video about it, and complete your campaign with profile details, but it won't make a difference unless you tell everyone where to find it!
Be sure to thank any and everyone who contributes to your campaign either through funding, shares, or even just likes. Be sure to acknowledge your supporters through Facebook and Twitter shout-outs, fun and engaging videos, individual emails or messages, hand-written letters and they are more likely to spread the word on your campaign efforts.
