Published by Darron Toy on



today we have a big celebration here on travel fashion girl and I am so happy to be sharing this with the community this has been a long time coming and I would have never in my wildest dreams have imagined the travel fashion girl would have achieved what it achieved last month in March last month was the very first month out of the 7 years that we've had that we've been running Travel fashion girl that we hit a million monthly visitors that is absolutely insane I would have never expected something like that to happen for those of you that don't know I started trouble fashion girl back in August 2012 and it was based on my own personal frustrations as a long-term traveler I really wanted to share how tired I really wanted to share all the the lessons that I learned as a long-term traveler and I was tired of traveling with so much stuff especially over packing all the stuff I really didn't need so in August of 2012 I launched Travel fashion girl from Koh Samui Thailand with the help of other travelers after spending a year interviewing other girls on the road finding out their frustrations finding out their favorite travel products and finding out what lessons they learn from their own travels I decided to report that back on this website and it was almost an instant hit it was so well received I couldn't believe that there was so many women that had the same issue and I was able to provide some insight and some clarity as to how to pack while traveling now packing why packing because it's about feeling more confident and stress-free while you're traveling and I'm so grateful and humbled at how much you've all embraced the website and the blog over the past 7 years so thank you for being there thank you to each and every one of you whether you're too in

Oh full of just helpful people and experienced travelers if you're going anywhere even when I'm traveling somewhere new ahead over the travel fashion and girls Facebook group and I asked for your best tips because I know that that's where I'm gonna find them so the community has been asking me for so long we love a way to identify each other while we're traveling haven't you ever said at the airport and wondered is that another travel fashion girl next to me I was at the airport yesterday I was traveling out of the Austin and Dallas Airport and I was thinking how you know how many women have Arthur any women in this Airport right now have I walked by anybody that's a travel fashion girl reader I'd love a chance to meet them in person I'd love a chance to say hey I'm a trouble fashion girl too so everybody's been asking and everybody's been requesting it and here it is we have it we finally got it we finally got Travel fashion girl luggage tags for everybody so that way we can identify each other at the airport so a couple of I think a couple of months ago I was the comedian law the community for the past I don't know several years has been asking for a way to identify themselves and they thought well maybe we can have scarves maybe we can have charms and we thought well what's the one thing that everybody needs everybody needs a luggage tag so here it is this is gonna be a way for us to identify each other at the airport and well we started talking about it on the group and we thought well how can we make this special this is gonna be waiting for us to recognize each other and bring together the community to a whole other level and how can we make that even more impactful how can we make our community how can we take that to the next level so in the Facebook group we thought what if we combined the ability to identify each other at the airport or while we're traveling with a charitable effort so we are gonna be selling these luggage tags for the community and only for the community starting next week all proceeds are gonna be a hundred percent of profits a hundred percent of proceeds are gonna go to charity a charity that you are gonna be choosing a charity that's gonna be an international charity something that we can support together as a community so we can pull together and you know it's pulled together as community and not just identify each other but also support another community may not be as fortunate as us so this is gonna be a full full group effort it's gonna be a project we're gonna do together I've created the luggage tag for you and I'm going to let you choose a charity I'm gonna ask I'm gonna show you everything it's gonna be a hundred percent transparent where I'm gonna be showing you how much it's costing how much everything is gonna be how it's all gonna work and then we're also gonna let you choose a charity as well we have a list of charities that have been that the readers in the group have requested and we're gonna be creating a poll later today in the group so if you're not a part of the Facebook group right now make sure to join head over the top to the Facebook I think facebook.com forward slash groups forward slash travel fashion girls and we're gonna add a link right now and later today I'm going to be posting up I'm gonna be sharing a poll that's gonna show you all the different charities that the readers that you the readers ask the community suggested so one of the things that one that the readers requested is that we have an international community maybe a community of charity that supports other women globally so I'll give you a chance to decide which charity like ideally we'll choose one charity a year we can sell luggage tags one time a year so we're gonna open them up for sale next week we're gonna be announcing the charity next week and we're gonna offer them for sale for two weeks and this is gonna be something that's not gonna be on available anywhere other than within the community only because it's just for us so how is it all going to work okay next week I'm going to be announcing the charity you're gonna have two weeks to four to pre-purchase this the luggage tags we haven't manufactured them yet we're gonna be doing a pre-sale kind of like the way we took with the compass rose products I mean I'm gonna get I think a separate PayPal just for the charity that way you can see everything and I can be a hundred percent transparent for you with you so that way you see where all the money is gonna be going to and we're gonna have the pre-sale open for two weeks the pre-sales gonna be open from next week April 17th through May 1st hopefully our goal is to sell we'd love to be able to sell at least a thousand of these luggage tags to raise about $10,000 for charity that would be our ultimate goal we would love to chair to raise $10,000 for charity that would be incredible and we're also gonna be matching it as well so I'll be sharing all those numbers with you everything it's gonna be fully transparent and we'll start next week so it's gonna be you're gonna be able to be ordering it globally from anywhere in the world and as of May 1st you can expect it to be six to eight weeks for delivery so we're hoping to get these in time for your summer travels I know summer travels are coming up so we are going to be working on this as soon as possible to get things going and it's true a thousand might seem like a small number we have with a million monthly visitors and a travel fashion girls Facebook group community of 14,000 this page has 70,000 followers we should be able to do at least a thousand I would be an amazing an amazing accomplishment to do something that where we can support other people a community and a community effort I mean I can't say how much I love the all the women in this group we've all helped each other not just for packing but for travel and in some cases some of you become my closer friends I've even met some of you and we've been able to support each other in posite in many positive ways so let's take that to the next level and let's make it a charity effort and I hope you really like this when I first presented it to the group I was very nervous it was something I've always wanted I've always wanted to have a charity a charitable tie-in for Travel fashion girl and this it's so exciting to have everybody responded in such a positive way so let's do it let's get at least a thousand of these and let's makes let's bring in at least $10,000 for charity that would be incredible ok so if you guys have any questions about it please leave it in the comments below let me show you a little bit about the luggage tag so it is a faux fur faux leather it's very lightweight very thin so make to make sure that we're keeping the weight down on our luggage as well so it's very lightweight it has this secure this secur security secur thing and inside you can put your business card or you can put in your name and your information that way you're you're able to identify your tag so hopefully when you're in the airport you see somebody else with this tag on their carry-on or their personal item or maybe even walking down a train station in Rome or somebody somewhere else around the world you'll be able to say hey I'm a travel fashion girl – that would be so
