THE EXPLORE MORE STORE
About The Store
It’s true, most travel advisors do not sell merchandise. However, the goal of Explore More Family Travel has always been to do more than sell travel. The goal is to open the world to people, to get them to see outside their bubble. There is a big beautiful world out there waiting to be explored.

I am combining my love of design and my desire to give back to create items that promote kindness and inclusion. 100% of net profits will be given to charity. One of my favorite sayings (which is featured in several designs below) is ‘a little kindness can change everything’. This pertains to acts of kindness as well as small donations. Every purchase from this page will result in a donation and these donations will add up to something bigger than what an individual could do on their own.
Now, let’s start shopping …
Below Items Will Benefit Refugee Support Services of the Carolinas
Before starting Explore More, I was a volunteer at Refugee Support Services, a 501(c)3 nonprofit post-resettlement organization that helps newly-arrived refugees make the Charlotte area their new home. I think this is the perfect non-profit to begin our donations with because they bridge helping at home while also opening our hearts and our minds to those of a different background.

ASTA stands for the American Society of Travel Advisors. It is the advocacy group helping travel advisor’s voices be heard, especially now as our industry has taken a hit like never before.
