While Addison and I were in Puerto Vallarta recently we were fortunate enough to volunteer at the Vallarta Food Bank for two months. We met some incredible people that truly loved and supported their community and made us feel welcome even though we were only temporary residents of Vallarta. Now, we’ve left Vallarta we are proud to say we’ll still be supporting from afar through our new initiative @ourpaperpromises.
We’ve created Our Paper Promises as a way to help travelers give back to the people and places that have given to them throughout their journeys.
In a nutshell, creators from all over the world will be able to submit their photos/art for sale as art prints on our website, we’ll print them, send them out all over the world, and will donate 25% to our nonprofit of the month.
Every month we’ll be supporting a different nonprofit to give them exposure and much-needed donations.
We hold a simple belief that together we have the ability to create a ripple effect of kindness and giving around the world and would love your help to it.
If you’d like to get involved you can submit your art for sale (you’ll receive a commission every time one of your pieces is sold), you can share this post to help us reach a larger audience, you can purchase a print when we launch or you could donate directly to Vallarta Food Bank, our first cause.
Vallarta, like many places around the world, is facing a crisis with lots of people out of work due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To help the community, a food bank has been set up for the families in Puerto Vallarta and its surrounding areas. Without your support, feeding those in need becomes an even more challenging task.
A little does a long way with $130MXN or $6USD feeding a small family for a week.
If you’d like to get involved please DM us for more information or sign up to be a contributing creator on our website www.ourpaperpromises.com
