COURAGE. CURIOSITY. COMPASSION.
We are a group of volunteers, adventuring across the U.S., on a journey to cultivate community, coalitions and compassion through service projects and courageous conversations.
We believe that if we can have the:
1) COURAGE to step outside our comfort zone, to meet each other where we're at, while welcoming each other just as we are...
2) CURIOSITY to listen first to understand and to be open to perspectives beyond our own...
3) COMPASSION to care for each other's wellbeing and dignity, and help alleviate each other's suffering whenever we can...
we can weave together a network of connection, care and belonging that can heal the divisiveness of our current moment.
We love to meet new people and hear different perspectives. If you come across our Caravan, please come say, "hi!"
If you'd like to donate toward our cause, we are accepting donations via Paypal and Venmo (click buttons below.)
Everyone involved in this project is a volunteer, and this project is entirely self-funded so we are deeply grateful for any and all donations toward our cause.
Your donations will go toward offsetting the out-of-pocket expenses of our service projects and bridgebuilding work, including making meals to feed people experiencing hunger and homelessness, random acts of kindness and generosity toward people in need, teaching and mentoring youth, and facilitating and producing bridgebuilding events for courageous conversations.
We would be glad to email you road updates along the way (only if you want) so you can see the journey unfold, and you can also follow us on our hashtag #whatisthecaravan to see our shared experience as we update about it.
*Note: Paypal/Venmo charge fees on all donations unless you use a "personal" account, so we are using a dedicated "personal" Paypal/Venmo account for this project, administered by treasurer/founder Benjamin Caron, so all your donations go directly to feeding people and healing our country. All funds sent for this project are catalogued with full financial transparency for anyone who requests it. Please email ConnectWithTheCaravan@gmail.com w/ any questions.
If we are traveling through your area and you want to arrange a meetup, please contact us!
