In fall of 2015, Travelocity had a Twitter campaign to promote and support international development and volunteerism by awarding one hundred people grants to Travel for Good – a total of over $100, 000 was donated to the field of volunteer travel! In order to qualify, you had to tweet where you wanted to go and how you’d volunteer using the hashtag #TravelForGood. Why? Because Travelocity believes travel isn’t only a chance to change your life, but also a chance to change the lives of others. We here at Global Volunteers agree and so do our awesome volunteers!
Here are some of their tweets:
