We’ve been hearing the plight of the #world’s less fortunate for many years now, and yes, each time we hear another sad story we do feel guilty … however, with our busy lives, we quickly forget these awful issues until the next terrible story of suffering emerges in the news. But this #time the seed has taken root in your mind - you are ready to make a difference. That’s great news as even one person can help change daily lives for the better, so just what are some of the ways to give back when you travel?
1. Make a Considered Choice
You can help a poor economy simply by choosing the right destination. For many poor countries, the tourist dollar is becoming a way to make a difference. It might be one of the smallest ways to give back, because you are, after all, just one party who has chosen a vacation here, but reputations for being a good tourist spot have to start somewhere. Remember though, generally, if you can afford the initial outlay to get there, less developed countries offer great value for your vacation budget.
