'Tis the season for giving

Not feeling in the holiday spirit yet? Switching gears to serve others will often do the trick. It’s sobering to realize that many people do not have basic things that are often taken for granted. Like food. Fortunately, there are pre-organized meal packing events, where you can join others in making meals for children in need. The event we attended was organized by One Meal, and it was a big success: in just one morning 65,000 meals were packed for dear ones in Haiti. Look to see if there’s an event like this in your area. It was a lot of fun too! So invite some friends and help make someone’s holiday season a lot better. 

Host Well

Did you know that a pull-out couch counts as a bed if it’s in its own private room (such as a home office)?  In your profile, please include a photo of the room with the bed made, so potential guests can see if they can get around it. 

General rule of thumb regarding beds: If at all possible, try to avoid putting a bed that sleeps 2 against the wall. It’s no fun when one of your  guests has to climb across the bed to get to their sleeping spot.

Giving Thanks

At this beautiful time of year, we pause and give thanks for the many blessings we’ve received. Our family, friends, and home are among the gifts we give gratitude for each year. We’d also like to take a minute to express gratitude for you as a member of this club. Together, we’ve traveled the world, expressed genuine hospitality, and made great friends with people we would have never met otherwise. The Evergreen Club is nothing without its members. So thank you for committing to unselfishly hosting, having adventures and expressing a sense of ageless activity through travel, and going above and beyond to make friends. 

Happy travels,

The Evergreen Team
