Nader and Imad had a habit of taking random, exotic jumping pictures during their trips around the globe. Once they started posting them online, the positive feedback they garnered was totally unexpected; both Jumpers knew they had to turn all this attention into something bigger than themselves: the idea for The Globe Jumpers was born: A travel sharing platform!
After years spent visiting various local communities around the world, the jumpers developed a strong humanitarian conscience: it is through their contact with these communities that they developed the framework for The GlobeJumpers, a non-religious, apolitical, eco-responsible, and socially conscious traveling movement. The idea is to give their fellow travellers the opportunity to bring local solutions to global problems, by pairing grassroots organizations with donors and international volunteers willing to give a helping hand.
HOW WE DO IT
The Globe Jumpers use their social media accounts to keep in contact with their fellow travellers by sharing quotes, photos and daily travel inspiration. Every day, Nader and Imad feature a breathtaking “jumping” picture of one of their followers, which allows them to interact and bond with like-minded individuals from all over the globe. With over 130K followers on Instagram, 20K on Twitter and 21K on Facebook to date, social media is, at present, the main outlet allowing the Globe Jumpers to reach out to the travelling community and expand their network.
