Traveling can have a variety of impacts on your life. For Dylan and Dixon Parker of Detroit, Michigan, it was the beginning of a journey that they hope will impact the world. For the last year and a half, the brothers have been pushing their t-shirt brand and non-profit, Blessed World Wide.  Their mission is simple: Feed and clothe as many people as they possibly can around the world. 

Dylan, who worked with an airline company, took advantage of his flight privileges, visiting 25 countries in less than a year. He fell in love with travel which further fueled his mission to make an impact. 

“I was inspired by seeing so many less fortunate people in the places I was traveling to,” he tells Travel Noire. “I really gained perspective on how blessed I was to be able to get on a plane, to have clean clothes, and to have a full stomach.”

Blessed World Wide has put on charitable events in Trinidad, Korea, and Detroit, where they will be having their second major event on Saturday, September 28, 2019. They plan to donate food and clothes to over 100 of the city’s homeless population.

The event will be held at the Rosa Parks Transit Station from 8 AM to 1 PM. For anyone in the area or who wants to help the Blessed mission,  Dylan and Dixon have this message:

“We cannot do this alone, so to encourage generous donations we are giving away a ​limited​ amount of Airbnb vouchers. Until we run out, we will be giving them away to anyone who heads over to www.blessedworldwide.com/savelives​ and donates to receive their free Airbnb voucher. To encourage black travel, one lucky person who donates will receive a free delta airlines gift card as well!”

Sailing Seychelles With Yacht Week East Africa Left This Girl From Kentucky With A Lifetime Of Memories

Written by: Krista Hayes I’m from Lexington, Kentucky where boating is mostly a weekend activity during the summer, only for the privileged. For the sons and daughters of wealthy horse breeders, business possessors, descendants of bourbon-distillery founders and ritzy home-owners who live in the same glamorous neighborhood as John Calipari. Even though my life as […]
