Ep237: How Visit.org is Partnering with Nonprofits to Offer Unique Travel Experiences


Today on CauseTalk Radio, Megan and I talk to Michal Alter, Co-Founder and CEO, Visit.org, about how this B-Corp is curating different local travel experiences — ranging from free to several thousand dollars per person — all in the name of social good! The traveler gets an authentic travel experience and 100% of host revenue is invested back into the local community.
