A rising trend among millennials and their families is to spend their vacations volunteering and spending their hard earn vacations serving those in need.
"Millennials are more generous with their time, money, and donations than any other generation, according to a recent study on travel and philanthropy.
"New data shows that 81% volunteered, 78% donated cash and 83% gave in-kind during their most meaningful trip from the last two years.
"The study, “Good Travels: The Philanthropic Profile of the American Traveler,” was conducted by Phocuswright and commissioned by Tourism Cares, the philanthropic arm of the tourism industry, whose members include Delta, American Express, Amtrak, Avis, Best Western, Fairmont, Hertz, IHG, Marriott and Norwegian Cruise Lines."--Tanya Gazdik Irwin, The MediaPost
