Walking The Earth is about more than great stories – it’s about sharing the stories of the people who make the places we walk so special, and are doing so much to either preserve them, help the people there or, in general, make them places worth walking in.

We choose the groups we walk for carefully – we want to make sure that they are worthy of not only our support but yours as well – proceeds from every Walking The Earth story sold directly benefit the nonprofit mentioned in the story.

So we hope you will enjoy every story we write and share – and we also really hope that you enjoy supporting the nonprofits we share with you.

If you have any questions about these groups, please email us.
