Join in the holiday spirit by giving back this holiday season with Good Life Expeditions.
We’re a responsible travel agency and operator owned 100% by an NGO, giving us a different motivation for planning trips. By booking a trip with us, you are directly supporting our partner non-profit MEDLIFE and the communities they serve across Peru, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Tanzania, and the incredible people that live there. With support from travelers, MEDLIFE can provide life-changing quality medical care, education, and development support to thousands of communities.

Giving Tuesday Campaign
During this giving season, Good Life Expeditions is supporting #GiveMED — MEDLIFE’s fundraising campaign in conjunction with Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday occurs the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and is a day of global giving. Propelled by the power of social media, these campaigns raise millions of dollars each year for non-profit organizations and charities worldwide. This year, Good Life Expeditions is supporting MEDLIFE’s Movement to create a world free from the constraints of poverty.
To donate to #GiveMED, visit the MEDLIFE donation page, or text the code GIVEMED to 44-321. With your generous contribution, you will join the Movement to create a world free from the constraints of poverty.
By supporting MEDLIFE, you’re supporting hundreds of thousands of people in their fight for equal access to healthcare, education, and a safe home. You are raising money to empower patients like Felix, who sustained a severe head injury and suffered from convulsions, fainting, and near immobility on his left side due to a cranial fracture. Because of MEDLIFE’s support, he is now enrolled in our patient follow-up program where he receives physical therapy. We are collecting funds to give him a surgery to receive titanium mesh to replace the broken piece of skull.
MEDLIFE’s ability to provide high-quality healthcare and support like this would not be possible without travelers like you. Learn more about our connection here.
