Volunteer Vacation: Two Sisters Hit the Road to Serve Others in Each of the 50 States

by Alikay Wood

In July 2016, the Fulmer sisters from South Carolina spent a year visiting every state in America. Each week Lindsey and Lee Ellen agreed to volunteer at a local nonprofit in each of the 50 states. The sisters started a GoFundMe page to raise money for the road trip, and they were by hosted families in each state. The sisters had set out to inspire other people but along the way found themselves inspired. Here are a few of their experiences from their journey across the United States.
