The Journey is co-led by Ellison Founder and Greek native Aristotle Loumis, who also manufactures and distributes his sunnies out of Athens. Together we will explore the abundant beauty and deep ancient history of this beloved country, as well as face its challenges head-on alongside its locals, in an immersive experience.

W H Y G R E E C E ?
Greece is known for beautiful white beaches and historical landmarks, but today they have been faced with one of the most pressing social issues of this decade: refugee migration. The Greek people have opened their hearts & homes to refugee migrants, as wealthier surrounding countries chose to close their borders, creating an impoverished nation of 11 million. This has lead to a population of homelessness and poverty in grave need of help.
