Pack for a Purpose

Social Share Toolbar

Pack for a Purpose is a non-profit organization that strives to fulfill its mission to positively impact communities around the world by assisting travelers who want to take meaningful contributions to the destinations they visit.


“Our goal is to assist travelers who want to say thank you in this manner or who simply want to expand their generosity beyond their own communities. The supply lists for destinations on our website are provided directly by the local community-based projects which receive and use the supplies, enabling travelers to make informed decisions and to take items which meet the needs of those who will be using them.”

The Springs Resort and Spa is a proud supporter of Pack for a Purpose. We work with La Fortuna Orphanage, known to the locals as Hogarcito San Juan Bosco de la Fortuna, which serves children from ages 6 months through 11 years old.

Hogarcito, started in 1999, is the only one of its kind in La Fortuna and is a pioneer of this type of transitional home. This orphanage is where children are given a safe place after being removed from bad home situations. The devoted employees, directors, psychologists and volunteers help fill this home with love, nurturing, and a feeling of well-being. The orphanage is also sustainable where the children learn how to grow food, raise chickens, recycle, and much more. Over time, the children are found more permanent homes throughout Costa Rica.
