Being a Part of Something Bigger…
Romantic Travel Belize (RTB) believes that in addition to providing service to clients and guests to Belize, we must also provide services to the community that is supporting the tourism industry. There is more to Belize than the wonders you see, there are many areas that need support and help that are not able to benefit from tourism. We at RTB believe that we are part of something bigger than ourselves, and we hope that you will join our efforts to make a small dent in the large list of needs.
Pack for a Purpose
Romantic Travel Belize (RTB) is a proud member of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you have just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and bring supplies for area schools or medical clinics in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families. Please click here to see what supplies are needed for our project/projects. I simply love the idea of a bride including a note about the “Pack For A Purpose Belize” program and have their guests contribute to the cause in the name of the Bride and Groom.
SAGA Humane Society
While Belize is an untouched paradise, she is a small country with big needs. Regardless of your own personal passion, if you like to volunteer and travel, it would be our honor to assist you. We have a wonderful SAGA Humane Society, and they’d love to have you help with the animals daily care, or perhaps you could take the dogs from “Fort Dog” for a walk. They love that 😀
Belize Red Cross
I have chosen the San Pedro Branch of the Belize Red Cross for one reason: We don’t have one. We are in dire need of medical support for the community at large, and due to our location in the “hurricane zone,” we absolutely need their presence in San Pedro to help make sure those who need it get support.Needs List

SAN PEDRO AIDS COMMISSION
The AIDS epidemic affects the whole world, including us in Belize. Help us control and contain the problem by donating, which helps fund AIDS awareness and education events. Volunteers from all walks of life are dedicated to bringing HIV/AIDS education and awareness to our San Pedro community. As you might be aware, the San Pedro AIDS Commission has embarked in an educational awareness campaign to help sensitize the general populace about the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Through the generosity of the business community and with fundraisers, we have been able to generate some funds for the campaign to assist those who have been infected and/or are affected by HIV/AIDS, and for the committee to continue its mission to educate.
OTHER COMMUNITY SERVICE CHARITIES IN BELIZE
While Romantic Travel Belize has chosen to support the Belize Red Cross – the San Pedro Branch, SAGA Humane Society, and the San Pedro AIDS Commission, we also support charities listed by other participants in the program throughout Belize. I love the idea of a bride including a note about the “Pack for a Purpose Belize” program and have their guests contribute to the cause in the name of the Bride and Groom. Please consider donating to the San Pedro AIDS Commission or to any of the other wonderful organizations to work tirelessly to help support the less fortunate of Belize.
