About this Fundraiser

Vaccines
There are no required shots; however, the following are typically recommended:

·    Typhoid

·   Hepatitis A

·   Tetanus-diphtheria booster

If you take prescription medicine, make sure you bring enough for the entire trip. Be sure to leave it in its original containers. The following medication is recommended as precaution:

·   Malaria Medication - There are several prescriptions available. Please check with your travel nurse.

Please notify Help One Now of any food allergies or medical conditions that might be important to your health and safety.

Phones/Communication
There are international data plans available; however, it is important that you check with your provider to make sure the DR is covered in the plan.

The safest way to avoid huge roaming charges is to turn off your data when you leave the States and use Wi-Fi for communication. If you have an iPhone, you can send iMessages over Wi-Fi for free.

Insurance
Help One Now will purchase trip cancellation and medical evacuation insurance for each of you. You will receive an insurance card to print out and keep with your passport a week before your departure.

Smart Traveler Enrollment Program
You will each be registered with the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). This is a free service provided by the US Government for citizens traveling abroad that will allow the US Embassy in the DR to better assist you in the event of an emergency.

Passport & Visa
Upon arriving in the DR, you must present a passport with an expiration date beyond six months from the current date. You will purchase your visa at the airport for $30.

Packing List
Passport
Snacks - there may be times when it makes more sense to eat snacks for lunch on the go, so please plan accordingly
Sunscreen
Mosquito repellent
Water bottle
Closed toe, sturdy shoes
Above all else, try to pack lightly in order to maximize transportation space.

Once you've registered, you will begin receiving additional information from the Help One Now team. Please email payton@helponenow.com with any questions!
