The Greenlife Fund: Supporting Inspirational Projects
It was back in 2013 when we first met best friends Justin and Patrick who had an extraordinary plan: travel the Camino together, despite Justin’s debilitating neuromuscular condition.
‘I’ll Push You’ was Patrick’s response to his friend’s plan and the CaminoWays.com team was honoured to be able to help the two friends on their way to Santiago.
Inspired by Justin and Patrick’s incredible adventure, the Greenlife Fund was created to support extraordinary and responsible travel projects related to the Camino and other destinations.
The Greenlife Fund is designed to encourage anyone with an interest in ecotourism and social responsibility to work together with the Greenlife team to create positive awareness related to specific issues affecting a culture, region, or community.
The Greenlife Fund in 2020
In 2020, the Greenlife Fund is supporting We Walk For You 2020, a project by famous pilgrim Johnnie Walker.
This brilliant initiative, We Walk For You 2020, was set up primarily to carry the intentions of people who are unable to do the Camino this year.
Johnnie and his friend Stephen invite you to send your thoughts, prayers, hopes, and intentions to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will carry them with them on their journey from St. Jean Pied de Port (the start of the Camino Francés) all the way to the Cathedral in Santiago, starting August 17th.
We will be tracking Johnnie and Stephen on each step of their epic 35-day journey so follow us on social media to stay up to date.
