“When you travel with RAW, you become part of something bigger. You are guaranteed to leave a lasting positive impact on the planet” Birte Moliere, RAW Travel Sustainability Lead

At RAW, we are committed to making the world a little better – one walk at a time. A leader in responsible travel, we thrive on making a real difference to our local community in Australia and in our travel destinations. Over the years we have supported many charities – tackling environmental issues and improving the livelihoods of vulnerable communities. Our charity challenges have helped raise over $A18 million in funds for 40+ charities around the world.

Our commitment to giving back doesn’t stop there. We believe in the power of our passionate staff and travellers working together and to ‘get hands-on’ for a better planet. That’s why our staff commit 3 working days a year to community service, providing essential support for our charity and non-profit partners.

Who we partner with

Our partners are carefully selected based on a set of selection criteria – to make sure our support results in real tangible change. This year, we are growing our partnerships with a sensational bunch of charities and foundations. Here are some of the groups we are privileged to work with:  

FUSION

A national charity, working to support vulnerable youth with a fabulous track record. Fusion support youth in very tangible ways including housing, training and development.

HELPING HANDS/ENVISION

We are championing Australia’s ‘War on Waste’ and are on a journey of ‘zero waste to landfill’. Our Mornington head office is a drop-off point for bottle tops which are turned into prosthetic hands for children in developing countries.

We are also collecting bread tags, which are used to make wheelchairs. We encourage you to drop your lids and bread tags off at the RAW Travel Hub or check for alternative drop off points here.
