“Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” –  Miriam Beard

The Hardly Home Initiative

Thank you for your interest in donating to The Hardly Home Initiative.

Our mission is to inspire our youth by engaging them through travel and study abroad opportunities. In doing so we aim to provide them with the tools and information needed for global leadership and success.

Our current goal along with the generation study abroad initiative is to sponsor and assist 500 students enrolled in high school and college with acquiring their passports by the year 2020.  We’ve found the most feasible way to do this is mailing “Passport Packages” to our recipients.

These packages include:

  1. DS-11 Application & Instructions
  2. Money Order addressed to the U.S. Department of State – $110
  3. Money Order addressed to the U.S. Post Service – $25
  4. Walgreens Gift Card to have Passport Photo taken – $14
  5. The Hardly Home Initiative “Passport Ready” T-Shirt – (Sponsored by Hardly Home, LLC.)

Total Cost of Package = $149 + Shipping


To date, we have issued more than 100 packages to current High School & College students.

If you would like to sponsor a student or donate, the donation box is available for your contributions.
