MAPS WITH A MISSION:
In a time like the present, travel is more important than ever. We’ve partnered with National Geographic and the Fund for Education abroad and donate a portion Landmass profits to help fund study abroad grants. We send at least two people abroad each year.
We work with Fund for Education Abroad because it stands for the same principles we do: learn about work, life, love, happiness, and a bunch of other stuff by leaving your bubble and living abroad. The communities involved within the organization are often very underrepresented,and we’re committed to send at least one student a year on a trip overseas. Our hope is that curiosity doesn’t kill any kittens, but rather encourages these students to come back to their community with an outlook that they can share and, ultimately, inspire others to travel as well.
Our partnership with National Geographic is one that is very near and dear to our hearts: their passion to help people push boundaries of what is possible not only from a problem-solving and “national” point of view, but a worldly one as well, is the reason why we love contributing to their Early Career Grants. In a nutshell, they say it best: “the people who receive these grants share a common set of values that guides them in their pursuit to better understand our planet and its critical interconnections. We expect our explorers to wield their collective power of science, exploration, education, and storytelling to change the world.”
