Announcing Erin Goes Global!
The best part about my journey is you get to come along with me—helping pick which countries to visit, where to volunteer and where to donate!
Where am I going?
I’m taking off for 2 years and traveling the world from 2011 through 2012. I’m starting in Fiji on New Year’s Eve and ending in Antarctica and hitting everywhere in between!
What am I doing?
The goal of the trip is to work with non-profit organizations and engage with individuals who are making a difference in their local communities. I’ll be volunteering with both global and local humanitarian organizations in many of the countries I visit.
For instance, I’ll be donating a well and working with the non-profit organization Drop in the Bucket to bring clean water to a village in East Africa. Where should I help build the well? You tell me!
Where should I donate?
Over the next 2 years, the Go Erin Go! Fund will be donating a whopping $25,000 through the monthly Donate my Dollars poll.
Since I’m starting off my trip in Polynesia, our first poll will feature three native island communities to support. Which culture should we help preserve? (See more information about each organization at the end of this article.)
Upcoming Trip Highlights
Trip highlights include:
- • Live TV: I’ll be streaming video from many international locations – so be sure to tune in to my live broadcasts from around the world!
- • Insider Messages: I’ll be sending out messages from international cities and regions, providing insider advice on cool places to Meet Up, Tasty Eats, Must-see Sights, Things you Gotta Have and Gotta Do, the area’s Greatest Need, and how to enjoy Extra Fun!

More about this month’s organizaitions:
• Papa Ola Lokahi, Honolulu, HI: This organization seeks to improve the health status and well being of Native Hawaiians and others by advocating for, initiating and maintaining culturally appropriate strategic actions aimed at improving the physical, mental and spiritual health of Native Hawaiians.
• Seacology, Fiji: Seacology helps protect the local environment and islanders receive some tangible benefit for doing so. For example, Seacology constructed a community hall in Tokou Village, Ovalau Island in exchange for the establishment of a 365-acre marine reserve for the duration of 10 years.
• World Forum Foundation, New Zealand: This project will document the indigenous vision of education and the Maoris’ struggle to maintain their culture and language by filming indigenous children in early childhood programs
