Non Profit, Charitable Giving
Thanks for posting. I created a new discussion forum for charitable giving and renamed this topic YachtAid Global, so, as you mentioned in your first post, members can post their own non profit information as new topics in this discussion forum.
THE MASSIVE CONTRAST
Its all a MASSIVE contrast going from serving those that have everything and more to those that have nothing and less.
Based on our YachtAid Global work in Mexico after hurricane Odile, the past weeks in Vanuatu and some involvement in Nepal, I can say that yacht crew are extremely well suited to disaster relief and aid work. Yacht crew are highly creative problem solvers who don't take no for an answer and know how to care for people ( compliment to the industry) .
The disaster relief space is filled with people that need all the care they can get and the road to get there requires endless creative thought and work around solutions to even get to the caring stage. The work is physically and mentally taxing and a wild ride of emotional ups and downs.
Many crew are wondering what comes next after they give up the yachting lifestyle.
YachtAid Global sees a really great fit for yacht crew in the aid work world which includes responding to rapid onset disaster and developmental aid work.
