St Petersburg, Russian Federation, January 9, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Dancing Bear tours has launched a new initiative to support the local community in St Petersburg, Russia. The new project is a Pack for a Purpose plan to support the local Orphanage #31 and the children there who desperately need support.

"This wonderful project allows us to give back to the community along with our tourists who are also interested to support the communities they visit."

Tourists arriving to St Petersburg can pack the following items in the suitcases and give them to the tour guide:
- New or Gently Used Children’s Clothing
- New or Gently Used Children’s Shoes
- Working Laptops, Tablets, or Mobile Phones
Dancing Bear Tours then delivers these goods to the orphanage personally.
Pack for a Purpose is an organization that aims to impact local communities around the world by helping travelers to provide meaningful contributions to the places they visit.
Even a small contribution from travelers can make a world of difference in the lives of the children at the orphanage.
Dancing Bear Tours provides St Petersburg tours for land passengers and St Petersburg shore excursions for cruise ship passengers. All tours are given by expert guides with a passion for showcasing the "Cultural Capital of Russia."
In this case tourists not only experience the wonders of St Petersburg, they also contribute to the lives of children in need.
