Kiwi Collection President, Philippe Kjellgren, has joined the advisory board for The Bodhi Tree Foundation (TBTF), a non-profit organization that is charged with mobilizing support from the travel and tourism industry to protect places, help people and preserve culture around the globe.
The Bodhi Tree Foundation just announced its new campaign, the Power of One. The campaign’s goal is to unite travelers around the world to stand as one in order to make a difference.
The campaign aims to shine light on the power of adding one dollar to every trip booked in order to change lives and give back to the people and places that make travel so rewarding. With 100% of Bodhi Tree Foundation’s donations going directly to the programs it supports, one person and one dollar can be a powerful force of change.

Some of the charities that benefit from the work done by TBTF this year include:

• FXB International / Protravel Rwandan Village

• Heritage Watch
The Bodhi Tree Foundation was founded in 2008 by Jena Gardner and James Saleh, both philanthropy-minded business leaders and passionate travelers whose lives have been changed by travel.
Ms. Gardner and Mr. Saleh saw the possibility to harness the resources of travel and tourism, one of the world’s largest industries, to help protect nature, support cultural diversity and directly benefit local people in destinations around the world, and the travelers who gain immeasurable joy by visiting them.
