Local Lowdown

What to join the fun? Great – because I need your help! I’m looking for individuals willing to act as hometown “Ambassadors” – giving me the local lowdown, including suggesting speaking venues, providing introductions to local nonprofits where I can volunteer, and helping me engage local media.

Proposed cities on the 14-month tour include:











Las Vegas

Los Angeles





New Orleans

New York City




San Diego

San Francisco





Washington DC

Kris & ErinSharing Stories & Sharing Profits

What makes this book tour different? Not only am I sharing my stories, I’m also sharing the profits! Each stop on the book tour will be paired with a nonprofit organization that will share in the profits gained from book sales at that venue.

Do you know a worthy nonprofit that’s willing to host a speaking event, promote the event on social media outlets, and allow me to participate in a volunteering experience? I’m all ears. Send suggestions my way.

If a hometown nonprofit doing fabulously important work but can’t offer any of the above – No worries! I’m still happy to consider how I might be able to support the organization’s good works.

Diverse Audience Appeal

I truly believe my presentation and book Adventure Philanthropist: Great Adventure Volunteering Abroad have diverse audience appeal.

Erin at Greenwich Country Day School, 2013I’m looking to have 3-5 events per city, reaching as many types of audiences as possible. The adventure philanthropy message resonates with:

  • Universities: Whether it’s interest in a gap year or summer volunteer program, students understand the life-changing attraction of international travel.
  • Independent & Public Schools: Private and public high schools are focusing on promoting a public service curriculum to encourage their students to give back to their communities.
  • Nonprofit Organizations: Committed to helping nonprofit organizations increase assets, hosting a speaking engagement is one way to build an audience and generate revenue.
  • Religious Institutions: The adventure philanthropist message is open to all faiths.
  • Conferences: Conferences focused on media, philanthropy, social entrepreneurship, and women leaders are especially applicable.  
  • Associations: Civic associations, such as Rotary Clubs, are welcome audiences.
  • Public Spaces: I’m happy to speak at libraries, neighborhood centers and town festivals.
  • Corporations: Speaking with diversity groups, including women advancement and empowerment groups, within corporations is encouraged.
