As travelers, we are forced to be aware. We must be aware of what we're doing, where we're going, and what impact our presence has on our surroundings. Travelers are a socially-minded group of people who are often forced to ponder life's misgivings through experience.
It is for this reason that the travel blogging community has banded together to give back to the communities who have nurtured us and helped us to grow.
The selected charities will receive 100% of the proceeds. None of the staff, bloggers or other contributors receive any compensation for their efforts. Everything is done out of the kindness of our hearts.
