What people think of The One Effect

The One Effect has been fantastic to work with. Not only do the people involved do awesome things, but the people involved in The One Effect are some of the most fun, amazing people we’ve had the pleasure of doing good things with. I am personally very grateful to the people behind The One Effect because they have helped us meet some of our goals and strive to do even more. It has been a complete pleasure working with Chris and everyone else who has stepped up to serve.”

The best thing about traveling with The One Effect is that it simply blows my mind every time. It has taught me how to travel…. oftentimes making the trip that much more enjoyable than I’ve experienced staying in great big hotels and taking expensive tours! I remember when we went to the Volcano Arenal in Costa Rica for a long weekend to raise money for charity… I was surprised with how  amazingly wonderful all the fellow travelers were!”Screen Shot 2015-01-25 at 2.44.53 PM

I always thought that one day I would like to participate in an experience like this. So I took vacation from work, packed my backpack and set off for an adventure.  I went to Tafi Atome, Ghana. The village that welcomed me with open arms. People are so beautiful there, they always smiling and very welcoming. I felt like I was at home.The work was physical and heavy, we always did it with pleasure…singing and dancing. Every smile from every child I crossed filled my heart to give more and more of myself for them.”Screen Shot 2015-01-25 at 2.42.21 PM
