W.A.M.Y. Community Action has announced a unique fundraiser.

Due to COVID-19, many fundraisers in the area had to be canceled, resulting in quite a hit to the budgets of different agencies and programs.

Many people have been unable to travel due to the pandemic.

WAMY has come up with an event that will allow you to travel around the world without actually leaving home.

High Country Press reports WAMY's Around the World in One Day event.

Participants can purchase a boarding pass, either coach, business or first class, depending on how much they want to spend. Passengers will receive follow-up complimentary souvenir pictures of their vacation that will include recognizable landscapes like the Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty.

All proceeds from the ticket sales for the trip will go directly to helping low-income families and breaking the cycle of poverty in the community.

Watauga, Avery, Mitchell, Yancey Community Action, Inc. (W.A.M.Y.) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to serving the four counties since 1964.
