Our Charity: Helping underprivileged kids!

During all our adventures and trips we encountered so many great and friendly people that we found out that the world is a better place than a lot of us like to think or might even believe. People from all over the world have helped us regardless of their wealth or financial possibilities. On the other hand, we've also seen a lot of poverty and especially when this poverty affects kids, it's heartbreaking.

Because we don't believe in big charities, foundations or NGO's anymore, we want to do something ourselves so we can manage every single dime, penny or cent that would be donated and be sure that it will go to the disadvantaged kids of the world, as they are the future of our planet.

We go to schools that don't have the necessary means to provide enough educational materials and provide them with paper, pencils and crayons or any other materials they need. We buy locally the necessary educational materials for the kids and go to the schools to directly donate this.

To be able to do this, we need YOUR help! So how can YOU help and make a difference? By donating money directly to our charity. Anything helps! Just think about those millions of kids not being educated because they just don't even have the means to buy paper and a pencil!!!!!

We hope we have convinced you to help us helping disadvantaged kids in the less fortunate regions of the world by making a donation today! Just drink one less tonight and donate this small amount of money! You can do it!

Alternatively, if you prefer to use a European banktransfer instead of Paypal, please contact us for this.

How will you be able to know that we are actually spending your donations on this cause and that this is not "again" a cause that will never reach it's purpose? Simply! Just follow us on Facebook and subscribe to our mailing as we give full reports with pictures and videos every time we were able to make the difference!

March 2015 Honduras: We were able to buy the necessary books, pencils, paper and other educational materials for a class of 20 kids for a whole year. FOR. A. WHOLE. YEAR. It was MARCH and the parents still didn't have the financials to buy a single sheet of paper and a pencil so their kid could learn to read and write. Just think about this for a minute...

We hope we have convinced you to help us helping disadvantaged kids in the less fortunate regions of the world by making a donation today!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
