A Ticket Forward Charity Helps People with Constraints Travel

A Canadian man, who was looking for a woman with the same name as his ex-girlfriend to go on a trip around the world, has used the international attention to form a philanthropy that will help people with medical, financial, or other constraints travel.

The newly-found organization is called A Ticket Forward.

Jordan Axani, 28, of Toronto put a post on Reddit about a month ago which garnered nearly 500 comments on there and a lot of media attention.

Well, he found another Canadian with the same name as his ex - Elizabeth Gallagher, in this case, a 23-year-old Nova Scotia student. And they leave for their trip on Sunday from New York City.

But, on top of this, Axani has joined with about 10 people to spearhead the new charity which will help those who would like to go on a transformative trip.

So, do you have any health problems, money issues, or other "tangible constraints" as their Website describes? If so, just share your story, and you could get a once-in-a-lifetime journey. After looking at the criteria, you can email Andrew@aticketforward.org with answers to: Who are you; What's your story? What's your dream destination? What has prevented you from visiting your dream destination?

Axani and Gallagher's itinerary, by the way, looks like a lot of fun:

Dec. 21: NYC to Milan
Dec. 28: Prague to Paris
Dec. 29: Paris to Bangkok
Jan. 7: Bangkok to New Delhi
Jan. 8: New Delhi to Toronto
