Experiences that make your heart swell….
Nothing makes the heart swell more than giving back. Locally or abroad. Travel with the purpose to give back to a local outreach program in your destination will make your personal vacation so much more meaningful.
Many of our travel partners in the All Inclusive sector, Cruise Lines, and Tour companies have foundations, schools or community outreach programs that they generously support.
You can donate to each of these programs individually or you can choose to travel with these companies knowing that a small portion of your invoice is helping these foundations. If you want to reach further, here are some options you can ask us about:
- Visit an Orphanage in Dominican Republic
- Work in a shelter in Jamaica
- Support schools in Vietnam and Cambodia
- Feed and care for endangered / exotic animals in India or Africa
- Support remote villages
- Organize a fundraising cruise for local charities here at home

Carnival Cruise Lines will donate $4USD per person / per day to a local charity of your choice? It’s a great way to turn your family reunion into a charity gala while having fun and spending time together! If you had 25 people on a 7 day sailing – that equates to $700 USD to your charity. Pretty amazing eh?
