What is the GiveBack GiveAway??

Just like you guys, we love to travel, and we’re very privileged to be able to do so, so we figured it would be even better if travel wasn’t only about the popular sights but also an opportunity for all of us to give something back.

This is why we created the ‘Give Back Give Away’. We work on community development projects to improve the lives of those who need it, from playgrounds for kids to market stalls for families to sell their wares. The way we fund these projects is through donations from awesome people like yourself! But, like we said, we love to travel – so – we make an amazing trip out of it!

As you guys know, donating to a great cause feels pretty good, but imagine donating AND having the chance to win a free trip to help make that great cause a reality on the ground! Yup, each year we add all the names of the project donors into a hat, and we draw one lucky winner, fly them to our project and they get to help us build the project, then explore the region we work in.

Even more than that, we need 14 more travelers to give us their time, get their hands dirty, and make this thing happen. Are you up for it?

The GiveBack Vision

We dream of marrying the freedom and excitement of travel along with respecting, and giving something meaningful, back to the communities we’re privileged enough to experience.

GiveBack GiveAway trips allow people to explore regions and cultures in a way that normal backpacking just doesn’t allow. We create epic memories to share with your grandkids, build new friendships and also we leave behind a meaningful, high-impact project that will further the community long after we’ve left. Travel just doesn’t get more beautiful than that.

Who’s behind the Give Back Give Away?


Meet our co-founders. After a lifetime dedicated to travel, Johnny and Josh felt travel could be so much more than a tour from sight to sight. With a passion to leave a positive change in the places we’re fortunate enough to visit, the GiveBackGiveAway was formed, To see the whole team behind the GiveBack GiveAway  check them out here!”

Having visited pretty much every country in the world, Johnny wants to help show others than traveling the world can mean more than sights on a tourist hit list. Getting to see the world, while giving something back is a beautiful concept and the GiveBackGiveAway is our answer to that. Johnny blogs about travel, life and biz at OneStep4Ward.com

Josh Henry

Travelling to over 50 countries, Josh thought it was time to giving something back, and co-founded GiveBackGiveAway accordingly. Working in tourism on nearly every continent he’s had the opportunity to take people on life-changing trips, to experience travel like never before. Josh also blogs about his travels at SmallWorldTravels.com
