ABOUT US

Liz is from Colorado. Kip is from Louisiana. We met, got married, and used to live, work and volunteer in Washington, DC.

Then we left our nonprofit jobs and flew to the Philippines to kick off what's now been a 16-month trip hiking, diving, surfing, and volunteering our way around the world. 


We've traveled our fair share, both together and solo. Over the years, we've visited (and gotten lost in...) more than 90 countries--but this is our first big sojourn as a couple. 

As part of our travels we're volunteering at least one day each week no matter where we are -- thus the name, 1 of 7.

Volunteering has long been a passion for both of us. 

From being mentors with Big Brothers Big Sisters to helping out during the 2008 Presidential Inauguration to starting employee volunteer programs at the nonprofits where we worked--we've always seen volunteering as an opportunity to have fun and give back.

Read more about some of our once-a-week give-back adventures here.

And remember, whether at home or far from it, there's always something we can do to help others.

  3. Perfectly safe, not to worry. The hard part was setting the timer and running around the cliff in time to get the shot.

  6. Hey Kip and Liz. I also ready about you in the NSU alumni news. Awesome pics. Wish I was tagging along. I'm from NO area. Graduated from NSU in journalism in 1974. Now a children's author. Your travels would be great fodder for school kids. Maybe I can hook you up with some classes after school starts as I go into them for author visits. Look forward to reading about your travels. Be safe.
