As a brand, we are committed to supporting organizations all over the world by bringing funding + teams to complete top projects needed to move humanitarian aid goals forward. In this monthly blog, we want to emphasize our highlight on our upcoming M.A.D. adventure to Costa Rica
with Saving Hearts Together.
First off, you may be wondering, what is M.A.D.?
M.A.D. stands for Make A Difference, and it is on these Make A Difference trips where we, as IVY, get to collaborate with YOU to help and support organizations all over the world.
On our M.A.D. trips, you don’t need a specialty skill to join – we help organize and lead our team in ways that can use everyone’s abilities to move projects forward. This is the kind of work that we get excited about! Our M.A.D. trips aren’t all work though – we know you want adventure, and you’ll get that too. On our trip to Costa Rica, we will have the chance to white water raft, do a zip line course, learn about local culture, and so much more.
While in Costa Rica, we will be helping fund and build a safe house for this amazing program: Saving Hearts Together.
Saving Hearts Together is restoring the lives of children in Costa Rica who have been removed from the sex trade by providing a live-in program that meets their physical, emotional, psychological, and educational needs. Saving Hearts is unique in that it provides the children with a variety of holistic therapies and ongoing support after they graduate from the program.
We will be helping fund and build a safe house for this program. It will require a lot of labor of love from us, and as a team, we will work together to make a difference to these children. This upcoming trip to Costa Rica was recently sold-out (super exciting!) and we could not be more thrilled.
If you are interested in joining a future M.A.D. trip – keep an eye out on our website + social media platforms (@theivybrand & @ivyadventures) for future adventures! We would love to have you join us.
