Take a vacation that gives back. As a Certified Good Travels Advisor, I possess the knowledge and tools to help you engage in more meaningful travel experiences that give back as well as support and care for the destinations you visit.
Adding purpose to your trip is more convenient than ever as several companies have programs in place that benefit the destinations you will visit. What’s best is you get to decide the level of impact you wish to provide (High, Medium or Low).
- Low – If you want to get away and simply relax and be pampered, consider a monetary or in-kind donation.
- Med – If you want to explore and do some good, consider a service opportunity with a local non-profit organization spanning a few hours up to a full day.
- High – If you want to experience all a destination has to offer, be immersed in the culture and make a lasting impact, consider a volunteer vacation whereby your primary focus is to serve and get in a bit of sightseeing along the way (often pre or post).
So take your pick and make an impact and return with an experience you can’t buy in a gift shop.
Another aspect of Charitable Travel is going on a trip hosted or sponsored by a non-profit organization. In these instances a portion of the trip package cost is contributed to the non-profit as a donation. You get to enjoy the fun and adventure of an exciting vacation and your tax-deductable donation enables the non-profit to achieve their fundraising goal and help more people in the communities they serve.
