RezHub.com Asks Travelers To Take One Day To Change The World
Volunteer vacations are often related to extended stays in remote destinations, wearing hefty price tags. RezHub.com is removing these high barriers and making voluntourism realistic for everyone.
PR9.NET June 16, 2008 - Orlando, FL - Voluntourism trips or volunteer vacations are often related to extended stays in remote destinations, wearing hefty price tags. With such high barriers surrounding these trips, many travelers consider volunteer vacations simply out of reach. In an effort to make voluntourism available to everyone traveling within the United States, RezHub.com has launched the Volunteer Travel Hub.
The Volunteer Travel Hub is a place where travelers can find free, short-term volunteer opportunities across the country. These "bite-sized" volunteer opportunities can be as short as a few hours, and are available in over 25 interest areas to help people reconnect with the issues they're passionate about. The Volunteer Travel Hub is powered by VolunteerMatch, the Web's leading volunteer matching network with over 58,000 participating organizations.
Since its launch last September RezHub.com has been on a mission to help customers feel good about travel. The newest addition to the RezHub family, the Volunteer Travel Hub, asks "What better way to feel good about travel than to get involved with something that inspires you?"
The Volunteer Travel Hub website offers travelers the benefits of a volunteer vacation without the usual extremes involved. Their motto, "It Takes One Day to Change the World," serves as both an inspiration and a challenge to travelers. "In the spirit of our Green Travel Hub, we created the site to show people that it's the small changes that really add up," explains Melissa Evans, marketing director for RezHub.com. "If just a fraction of the millions of people traveling in the United States each year spent one day of their vacation volunteering, what a difference we could make."
The bite-sized volunteer opportunities are intended to be combined with leisure vacations, business trips or any other travel arrangements. While discovering and participating in the bite-sized volunteer opportunities is free, the travel arrangements surrounding them are the responsibility of the traveler. Simply booking a trip at the Volunteer Travel Hub will help make a difference: RezHub.com will donate 20% of the profits from every trip booked at the Volunteer Travel Hub directly to VolunteerMatch to help good people and good causes to connect.
