For all of you who want to add some meaningful service to your vacation, the Ritz-Carlton is going to give you a (swanky) hand with that. The Ritz-Carlton Give Back Getaways volunteer program allows guests to serve alongside R-C employees as they support local programs and initiatives. Not only will guests get to lend their time, but the Ritz will donate the profits of each excursion to the sponsoring organization.
Here are some of the many opportunities listed on the Ritz-Carlton’s website:
Rainforest Rescue: Saving El Yunque (San Juan, PR)
Children’s Home Society (South Beach)
Preserving our Monuments, Memorials, and Parks (Washington, DC)
The Greening of Beijing (Beijing, China)
Restoring the Rainforest (Kapalua, Maui)
This is such a great idea! Kudos to the Ritz-Carlton for not only encouraging their employees to give back but also extending the opportunity to their guests.
