The spirituality and generosity of Bali has been a great inspiration behind Positive Impact, therefore I wanted to create a place to share some of my experiences from life on the island, including family-friendly travel tips, and a personal guide to my local neighbourhoods of Pererenan and Canggu. But most importantly, I want to provide a space for the fantastic organisations based here in Indonesia that we like to support through the work of Positive Impact.
If you feel compelled to donate to one of the charities below, then I thank you from the bottom of my heart
I frequently organise donation-based events, such as Reiki shares, yoga classes, and digital gatherings, so keep an eye out for these, which will be shared on my events page. As a family we also help to gather donations of clothing and household items for the charities that can best use them (such as Bali Street Mums), therefore if you are looking for a way to donate items to one of the charities listed below, please feel free to reach out as I am always happy to help organise a delivery.
Many people and animal are going hungry, COVID-19 has added more pressure on these fantastic organisations. If you need any more information prior to donating please do ont hesitate to contact me personally.
