Creating Intercultural Relationships for Our Future Generation

How do we bring the world together?
 
There are so many people from so many countries that inhabit our planet, but how many people do you know personally that were born in another nation?
Have you ever traveled to another country, and stepped out of your comfort zone while exploring it?
+
 Have you ever participated in humanitarian acts that benefit those in countries that have never seen the luxuries you have?
+
 Have you ever been a role model to someone younger than you, and inspired them to change the world, even at the smallest level?  
+
If you have answered yes to these questions, you get it. If you have answered no, we're here to help.

Costa Mundo is not just a travel attire clothing company, we are a company that believes in uniting the world. We believe that traveling is the key concept to understanding other cultures and appreciating them. The world would be a more peaceful place to live if we were more accepting of our cultural differences. This is why we vowed to try and change that, starting with our youth. We know it is difficult to change the minds of adults, but inspiring our youth has a much larger impact. We believe that if we can encourage young minds with humanitarian acts, foreign friendships, and the opportunity to explore different cultures that it will remain with them throughout their lives. We hope to empower the future generations with an unbiased mindset that unites the world.

Every shirt from us provides you with a special message in a bottle. At Costa Mundo; travel is our destiny, inspiring others to want to travel is our passion. In addition to receiving a message in a bottle. Each purchase provides a local student in America with the opportunity to send their own message in a bottle to a child in another country.

We achieve this through classroom to classroom peer involvement. Each student packages up a "care package" (supplied by Costa Mundo) with necessary items for children to be better set up to learn and take on a new day at school. Along with these packages the student will send a personal, pen pal styled message in a bottle. The student on the other end will then receive the package with the message, and then have the opportunity to respond with their own special message. Thus, hoping to form a life long friendship and an inspiration to change the world.

Hopefully, creating a group of children, more open to understanding the diversity in the world and perhaps on day will be willing to travel to see the many splendors, it provides. 
 
Never stop.
