So you want to travel the world. There’s just one catch — how can you afford to?
Try fundraising. If you volunteer with Orphanage Support Services Organization (OSSO) and fundraise the program fees, your travel to serve the children can be affordable or even free.
We have an entire page on our website dedicated to helping you fundraise. And, our office staff is happy to help you get started. Whether you want to do an online crowdfunding website or face-to-face fundraising with potential donors, the fundraising will work but will require some effort on your part. However, all fundraising will pay off in the end and any amount donated helps you reach your goal of getting all of your program fees paid for.
Because OSSO is an IRS qualified 501(c)3 non-profit, anyone who donates can receive tax benefits for helping this great cause. Donors who donate funds towards your trip can pay using a check or credit card. Those who pay directly to OSSO through a check or via online payment will be mailed a tax receipt in January of the coming year. Let your potential donors know this and they’ll likely be more prone to donate.
There are many programs you could choose to travel abroad with. But, OSSO is unlike any other program. First, we are actually one of the most affordable programs to go with. Second, OSSO not only buys food for orphans but also provides the loving hands needed to help feed the children. Third, while it’s an exciting adventure to live in another country, with OSSO you’ll be most grateful for the time you dedicate to the children. Your primary focus as an OSSO volunteer will be serving in the orphanages.
