Volunteering is one of the most affordable ways to see the world. There are even ways to volunteer abroad for free. If you’re not ready to commit to a long term volunteering stint like peace corps, there are many affordable short-term programs out there – especially here at Build Abroad! Once you find a program you like, there is an abundance of free online fundraising platforms you can utilize to completely fund your trip:
GoFundMe – A crowdfunding site for individuals. Like Kickstarter, GoFundme allows you to raise funds from many different people. You can setup an account and start fundraising in minutes.
CrowdRise – Another personal crowdfunding site focused on giving back and supporting great causes.
Fundly – Allows you to create an online Fund Raising campaign for just about anything, including volunteering.
