We all know house-sitting allows pet-loving travellers to make new friends - in their own countries and beyond their borders - by looking after others homes and pets.
But this time, house sitting is moving beyond that and actually making a child’s dream come true.
Here at House Sitting World we are super proud to be working alongside the house sitting platform Nomador and it’s owner Mariannig Ferrari, to be doing our part in helping Beth and her mum Katie travel the world through house sitting.
Beth is a 12-year-old Australian girl born with brittle bone disease and has been in a wheelchair since she started school. She lives near Sydney with her mother Katie, an environmental educator.
“I want her to have the chance to open up to the world and experience the diversity. Because the world is all the richer for our differences,” says Katie. “I would also like her to have the chance to see, that with bravery and confidence, you can achieve your dreams.”
Beth has created a bucket-list with 101 items of things she would love to see and do around the globe!
AND NOW HOUSE SITTING IS MAKING IT A REALITY!
Being invited into real homes along their journey will allow Beth and Katie to make the trip. To meet local families and perhaps children of her own age, try regional cuisines, looking after houses, and of course animals… which Beth just adores!
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
