Every member of Summit Series sold their belongings or shipped them back home to their parents’ place so they could travel with just one suitcase and live in different cities every six weeks. The idea is to meet “interesting” people face-to-face who are doing something good.
“It’s a time in our life to see the world,” Summit Series co-creator Elliott Bisnow said. “And to do that and to live with your best friends and work with them is incredible.”
“It’s cheaper to travel and rent places than live in a city,” added Josh Zabar, one of Summit Series’s members.
Part of their travels include aid missions. In the spring of 2010, the group went to Haiti with actress Kristen Bell and Bobby Chang. They gave out 1,000 LifeStraws, a couple hundred Incase backpacks and $10,000 worth of school supplies from Staples, which has been a sponsor of previous Summit Series events.
