AAA Traveler - Holiday 2019 - 23

When it comes to traveling,
gratitude is a game changer.
Beyond the obvious - being thankful for the resources
to get out of Dodge in the first place - celebrating a
journey by making some kind of contribution along
the way is a powerful force for good. Mindful altruism
comes in all flavors, from simply making a monetary
donation to the community you're visiting to
jumping into a project with some sweat equity
and teamwork. However it's done, the notion
of making a positive impact along the way
elevates a holiday to the most
satisfying heights.

Global Volunteers
Type of Opportunity: Voluntourism
Details: The nonprofit clearing house for giving back sends
more than 2,000 volunteers each year to 17 countries
(including the U.S.) to do everything from providing childcare
to repairing community facilities. The cost of your trip is a
tax deductible donation that covers everything but airfare.
Projects can include teaching English to Vietnamese youth
and adults, as well as community gardening in Cuba. The
adventure is up to you.

Type of Opportunity: Various projects
Details: Comfort and giving back don't need to be mutually
exclusive. Roughing it might not be your cup of tea, which is why
the TreadRight Foundation is such a gem. This nonprofit works
with some of the most trusted luxury brands - think Trafalgar,
Insight Vacations and Uniworld - to support more than 50
sustainable tourism projects worldwide. Organized in
three categories: people, wildlife and planet, TreadRight
projects might have you supporting rhino conservation,
assisting locals preserving ancient ways of life or
connecting with a women's cooperative in Jordan.

Sandals & Beaches resorts

getaways for families, friends and couples. But the company,
founded by Jamaican entrepreneur Butch Stewart, is serious

programs on eight Caribbean islands, the Sandals
Foundation offers a range of opportunities for guests to give
back on vacation, by donating time or resources in ways
that help local students, support local community events or
promote sea turtle conservation.

Details: What's in your suitcase? Besides the usual
duds and toiletries, Pack for a Purpose is a nonprofit that
encourages travelers to save five pounds' worth of luggage

necessities that can be donated to locals in need. With
travelers doing the not-so-heavy lifting, more than 312,413
pounds of essential supplies have been donated to schools,
animal shelters and community clinics in some 60 countries
all over the world since 2010. Talk about a win/win.

Carnival Cruise Line

Carnival team members spread smiles to kids in treatment at the
