Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

After spending nearly a year of preparing the first vessel for the sea, we are only a week away from this reality! It has been a tremendous effort and experience to see this idea come to life! IRG aims to bring food, aid, and supplies to coastal communities affected by disasters through leveraging private cruisers from around the world.

What a fantastic mission - saving lives by boat, and engaging with the 10,000 cruisers around the world! There's the possibility of serious leverage here, with volunteer-driven boats, crews and missions around the world, to do a LOT of good with very little money.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I learned how to grind steel welds and was even taught how to weld!

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I felt like I was having a direct impact on supporting a life-saving rescue mission.
