What You'll Do
Get ready to check a big item off your bucket list because you and a friend are heading to the Galápagos Islands! You’ll have an action-packed week of adventure aboard the National Geographic Islander as you explore the islands and their rich biodiversity once studied by Charles Darwin. Maybe you’ll snorkel in the shimmering water among fish, sea turtles, penguins and playful sea lions. Maybe you’ll sunbathe next to a mess of iguanas (yes, that’s actually what a group of them is called). Maybe you’ll even snap some selfies with species you can’t find anywhere else in the world. The Galápagos Islands aren’t your typical island paradise… and this will be anything but a typical vacation. Flights, hotel, cruise cabin and meals are covered.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.
Who You'll Help
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an independent humanitarian organization that delivers medical care to those affected by violence, disease, malnutrition, exclusion from health care and catastrophic events. Your generosity will allow MSF’s team of over 41,500 doctors, nurses, midwives, epidemiologists, water-and-sanitation experts and many others to reach their patients and continue their life-saving work. Today, that includes treating severely malnourished children in Niger, running emergency surgical programs for victims of landmines and bombings in war-torn Yemen and tackling an Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
