In trying times, nothing is more uplifting than watching communities rally. With self-quarantine precautions and government-mandated lockdowns increasing daily to address the coronavirus pandemic, individuals and institutions around the world have found creative ways to maintain some semblance of normalcy and calm, from personal trainers hosting rooftop workouts to the Metropolitan Opera in NYC live-streaming its performances.
Our friends at Wanderful, a leading network for female travelers, are doing their part as well. In light of the pandemic, Wanderful is offering 600 scholarships to foster community and connection among female travelers who may be homebound or are not in a financial position to join at present. The brand is giving away 500 free one-year memberships to the Wanderful network (typically $69/year), where women travelers can get acquainted, source travel tips, find meetups, and more. It’s also offering 100 free lifetime memberships to the Wanderful Creator Collective (typically $23.99/month or $254.99/year), which supports aspiring influencers, content creators, and entrepreneurs in the travel industry.
In addition to Wanderful’s many resources, members can connect virtually through programs like digital meetups and language exchanges, right from their living rooms. The brand is also looking to offer new ways of socially connecting in the era of social distancing, such as virtual yoga classes. Creator Collective members can look forward to webinars, virtual networking opportunities, and more.
Editor’s note: Matador Network was looking forward to being an official sponsor for the Women in Travel Summit in Kansas City this May. Unfortunately, the conference has been postponed, but we can’t wait to reconnect with women travelers and content creators at a later date.
