Between Passports with Purpose and the clear growth around pairing philanthropy with travel for 2014 (see my recent article on Luxury Family Travel Trends), ’tis the season for teaching our children to become active global citizens.
A great example of this in action: Tween/teen musician-activist sisters are on a mission this holiday season to raise $250,000 for the first LEED-certified orphanage in the world. How cool is that?
They’ve produced a CD — Invitation to Dream — where all proceeds will go to Project Haiti, the building of the first LEED-Certified orphanage in the world to provide a new home for the children and babies left homeless by Haiti’s terrible 2010 earthquake.
Every track is sung by then 12-year old Devon Holland who with her two sisters, Kylie (14) and Piper (11) are the dreamers that created this cause campaign and aim to raise $250,000 for Project Haiti by the end of the year to break ground in Spring 2014.
To purchase Invitation to Dream, go to the girls’ new record label website Painted Wolf Records, which was established for other kids to be able to share their musical talents for philanthropic efforts.
