Spark Zambia Trip Featured on Groupon
It isn’t every day that a small nonprofit organization like Spark Ventures receives national recognition. But that’s what has happened this week with the offer of Groupon’s first ever volunteer vacation deal in partnership with Spark.
The trip was released with the launch of Groupon Grassroots as a Groupon Getaway.
“The collaboration between Spark Ventures, Groupon Getaways and Groupon Grassroots has created an incredibly impactful and enriching experience,” said Patty Huber, Director of Groupon Grassroots. “Service trips like these are transformative – people are changed forever – and we’re thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity to our subscribers.”
The Spark Ventures Volunteer Vacation in Africa will be available on the Groupon Getaway page now and runs through Wednesday, April 25 or until sold out. With the purchase of the $2,000 getaway voucher, Groupon subscribers will join a nine-day, all expenses paid trip in Africa including time spent directly with the children served through Spark’s partnership work in Zambia, an unforgettable safari in Botswana and a magnificent trip to Victoria Falls. The deal includes all in-country expenses including meals, lodging, excursions and local transportation.
“We are excited to partner with Groupon to bring volunteers to Africa for a life-changing volunteer vacation,” said Rich Johnson, Spark Ventures CEO and co-founder. “It is a fantastic combination of meeting and volunteering with amazing children and the local staff who serve them, and incredible cultural experiences with meals, markets, a safari and Victoria Falls.”
