Travel + Leisure on Volunteer Vacations

Having just returned from my own volunteer vacation with Habitat for Humanity in distant lands I wasn’t searching for more opportunities just yet, but stumbled upon this awesome T+L piece on volunteer vacations. First it was their photo of the day picture as seen here taken by David Nicolas at one of Habitat’s new sites on the Gulf Coast that caught my attention. Clicking further I found that the article specifically tackles a volunteer on the road’s experience in areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina along the Gulf Coast. It’s another good read complete with links to start planning your own volunteer vaca.
