do good


It's a big, wild world and traveling across it has opened my eyes to my privilege. The more I see, the more I learn about sustainable initiatives, ethical tourism, and volunteering abroad.  Here are some ways I've tried to leave the many destinations I've wandered through a little better and brighter.

Help my friends at "Little Land of Mines" get their documentary produced to help bring attention to the hidden history of Laos, the world's most bombed country.
