2. To enter the Go Across Travel 12-day Discovery Program (the “Contest”), presented by Go Across Travel, International Panamá, Inc. We need you to CREATE your profile page on the contest section of the website. Click on GET STARTED NOW. It's very user friendly, but any confusion or questions? Call us or email us via the numbers and address found on the website. Once registered for the campaign, we will send you the CONTACT information for the fundraising coordinator of the charity we are working with. A relationship between you and the non-profit/charity will be established and you need to tell them what you are doing and how will be helping them raise funds. They may help you but this is not guaranteed. You will need to receive donation receipts from the non-profit to give to your donors. Most legal non-profits allow a tax-deductible receipt if the donation is $20 or more but not less. You will need to find this out with the CASASC regarding mandates and rules according to their province/state/country.
