There are many ways to travel and do good at the same time. You can join a trip that sees you volunteering directly—helping to build houses somewhere that's been hit by a natural disaster, say, or taking homeless dogs to the beach in the Caribbean, or feeding orphan baby cheetahs in Namibia. Or you can travel for good by booking into a hotel or joining an excursion that gives a portion of profits to charity, or by paying admission to a wildlife sanctuary that supports conservation. Regardless of how you do it, and whether it's a spontaneous philanthropic day or a trip devoted entirely to "voluntourism," we promise you'll return home afterwards with a new appreciation for the world.
