Help UKRAINE by Donating to UNICEF

Our hearts and support go out to the people of UKRAINE and their immediate neighbors who are lending a hand to those in need. UNICEF is currently imbedded in key areas of the borders and are helping the women and children who are fleeing the war zone. No matter how small your donation, each amount helps to ensure that this vital lifeline reaches those who need it. We urge you to share this link with those you know and hold them close.

What is a Kaleidoskope? An instrument that allows you to look at the world with an ever-changing perspective of different patterns, colors and light.

The idea of our magazine and travel portal is all about how you can be both a better traveler, a mindful traveler as well empowering the local communities and economies you touch around the world. You are “traveling for a better world”.
