Whenever you travel, there is an opportunity to make a positive impact on the local community beyond the tourist dollars that you spend. Pack for a Purpose is an organization that coordinates travelers with local charities.

I spoke with Rebecca Rothney, founder of Pack for a Purpose, to hear her story. I learned of an ingenious idea how travelers can make a profound difference in the lives of many around the world.
