FLYTE’s Gift Guide
Whether you don’t have the financial means to directly donate, or simply want to buy a gift for yourself or a loved one and also support a meaningful cause – FLYTE’s partners have you covered.
Here at FLYTE, we are so grateful for our partners who donate proceeds to us. When you buy from our partners, you are not only getting an amazing product – you are also helping a young person get the chance of receiving a global experience.
1. World Wild Hearts
World Wild Hearts is a travel blog whose mission is to inspire readers to get out in the world and have a life-changing experience. The couple behind this blog, Zac and Ine, realized this was their life’s work when they met at a tri-continental Master’s program, which enabled them to open their minds to the ways of the world.
World Wild Hearts has its own stylish and travel-inspired apparel. Because they believe travel should be accessible to all, they donate 10% of all of their profits to FLYTE. You can shop their store here. You can check out their Instagram here, @worldwildhearts.
2. Wandering Well
Wandering Well is a travel blog that started after Grant took a life-changing trip through the winter wonderland of Scandinavia. To him, “wandering well” is more than the name of his travel blog – it is a way of life and a way of travel. He emphasizes that travel is not only an external experience but an internal one as well. As we explore the earth, we also discover ourselves.
You can connect with him on Instagram @wanderingwell
3. Crabtree & Evelyn
The company Crabtree & Evelyn started with Cyrus Harvey selling soaps and perfumes – but truly, these were more than soaps and perfumes. They represented the stories he learned while he traveled and encompass the cultures he explored.
Crabtree & Evelyn donated $35,000 to fund an entire trip for FLYTE, which you can read more about here. We are very grateful to have them as a partner. To purchase their gorgeous soaps and other products, please use this link to support FLYTE and use code “FLYTE10” to get 10% off your order. You can connect with them on Instagram @crabtreeandevelyn.
