Abundant Journeys was founded upon the biblical principles of abundance. The goal ultimately is to avoid becoming overcome with excessive materialism by deliberately bestowing our blessings upon others. Always valuing others and building them up each and every day.
Matt. 6:21 “…for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
This travel & lifestyle management firm focuses its giving efforts on three primary areas:
- Women and children
- Fitness and culinary pursuits
As a small business, we have limited funds available to contribute to worthwhile causes. Given our limited resources, we selectively choose how the funds will be utilized from year to year. For 2014, our mission is to contribute to the following:
Women and Children
We give to programs/groups created to enhance the lives of women and children. Through proper funding, we would like to contribute to three organizations for 2014.
Frisco Family Services – “serves families and individuals of Frisco and surrounding areas by providing a safety-net to support their independence.”
Society of Women Who Love Shoes – “is a Texas-based non-profit 501 c 3 organization making a measurable difference in the lives of women and families of abuse.”
Junior Achievement – JA’s “volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential.”
While Junior Achievement also falls under our education initiative, our primary mission for education is to pledge an annual $1,000 scholarship to assist college students with tuition needs.

Fitness and Culinary Pursuits
We give to programs/groups committed to promoting physical fitness and healthy eating in their local communities. With adequate proceeds from apparel sales, we will be able to support two organizations.
Action for Healthy Kids – Their mission is “to engage diverse organizations, leaders and volunteers in actions that foster sound nutrition and good physical activity in children, youth and schools.”
Shape Up America! – “The purpose of Shape Up America! is to educate the public on the importance of the achievement and maintenance of a healthy body weight through the adoption of increased physical activity and healthy eating.”
In order to achieve our mission to contribute to the above-mentioned causes, we must generate sales from our apparel primarily.
While we have set initiatives we would like to support annually, we also allocate a certain percentage to community requests. To manage the time we give to reviewing request, we only make decisions on community support initiatives twice annually: October and April. If you have a community project you would like Abundant Journeys to support, then please click the CONTACT button above to inform us of your cause. We will review causes inline with our brand and company objectives and goals. Of course, this method requires a little planning and foresight on your part.
- Requests made May 1 – September 30 will be decided upon between October 1 – 31.
- Requests made November 1 – Mar 31 will be decided upon April 1 – 30.
- We do not accept new request during decision months: October and April
Disclosure – Unless specifically stated, Abundant Journeys is not an official partner of any of the above listed organizations. We have independently chosen to support these organizations should we materialize a profit from the sale of our apparel and specific travel-related services.
