We’re fanatics about tracking down deals and uncovering the newest hot spot destinations, but we also know that touring the globe encompasses more than snagging an oceanfront villa on the cheap.
The people, places, and creatures that make up this great planet of ours could use some TLC, so we’re teaming up with Projects Abroad (www.projects-abroad.org) to send two big-hearted travelers on short-term volunteer trips next year. The volunteers select their destination and cause – working with orphans in Romania, cleaning beaches in Cambodia, and coaching soccer in Senegal are each possibilities – and we’ll sponsor the whole trip.
We selected these two intrepid volunteers via a Facebook video contest earlier this month, and the two one-minute submissions impressed us so much that we don't want to pick just one.
Of course, there’s one caveat: To make these volunteer trips a reality, we’re required to boost our Facebook following to 5,000 fans. Almost 3,600 of you already think we’re swell, so this isn’t a stretch – we just need your help! Like us, and tell your friends to like us, so we can do our (small) part to make sure the world’s treasures are around for the next generation of ShermansTravelers.
