Established community & legal aid organizations such as African Services Committee and Make the Road New York nominate low wage workers or their family members - we call them "Travelers" - for free trips through Hello Vuelo.
We work with community organizations so they can vet individual’s stories and ensure that they are in need of support. Travelers are from low income families and generally fall into the following categories:
- have not seen loved one for over 2 years due to low income
there is a sudden health issue in the family and a low income family member cannot afford a trip to visit
there is a milestone event coming up (birth of a child, wedding, funeral) and the low income family member cannot afford to attend
These nominated low wage workers or their family members go up on our website with their narrative and pictures so people can read their stories, encouraging them to make donations to reunite low-income families.
ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE
