thanks for helping us choose an Xplorer!

Once again, we’d like to thank everyone who participated in our Become an Xplorer Contest. Based on our internal PARALLAXploration program (which gives all employees $1,500 a year to travel anywhere in the world and do some good along the way), thinkPARALLAX wanted to extend the program this year to include an additional Xplorer that doesn’t work in our office.

From the quality and thoughtfulness of the entries to the overwhelming number of people that put the word out on social media, your response to this contest has been incredible. Thank you for helping turn our little idea into such a huge success!

The final decision (picking one winner from five finalists) was a tough one. We felt a connection with every single one of the finalists and saw merit in each of their causes. That said, we’re pleased to announce that the winner of the contest is (drumroll….) Elizabeth Asha. Her heart for the Tibetan refugees at the Lha Charity in northern India came through loud and clear in her video and resonated with us deeply. We’re honored that we get to play a small part in her vision for a more humane world. Hopefully, the world will be as inspired by her journey as we are.

Welcome to the team of Xplorers Elizabeth.
