Have fun. Do good. (…and be sure to do your homework first ;)

June 16, 2016 in , , , by Sue Braiden

There are lots of ways to have unconventional adventures, and some of my favourites are the ones that allow you to have fun while doing good.

CBC (the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) shares some wonderful (and essential) tips for ensuring that social justice adventures are both safe and meaningful.

Good intentions don’t always lead to good outcomes. This list is a terrific launchpad to cover your bases before traveling abroad to help.

Stephanie Zito is Wandering for Good, and ready to teach you how to do it too, on a budget! (…and did I mention she’ll teach you for free?)

Stephanie Zito, Wandering for Good

The “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” project has a mini mission statement — “Have fun. Do good.” — so you can imagine how fast I clicked the link to Stephanie Zito’s web site when I saw her own motto resonated with our’s. After all, an Adventure Diva can never have too many allies!

Stephanie is a humanitarian globetrotter who lives by her personal motto: “See the world. Change the world. Have fun doing it.”

Her expertise in all things travel comes from more than 20 years working on the road across 120 countries and all seven continents.

Stephanie is also the founder of the #give10 project, the author of “Upgrade Unlocked: The Unconventional Guide to Luxury Travel on a Budget” and the resident travel expert for the Travel Hacking Cartel. When she isn’t collecting points and miles, Stephanie consults for international humanitarian organizations as a strategic communications advisor. She also manages operations for Color Cloud Hammocks—a social business she co-founded while living in Cambodia.
