Volunteer Vacation

Heather and Cathy two of the Direct Abundance girls are back and following the ever popular trend of voluntourism by taking a fabulous tropical vacation and volunteering while here. According to a poll conducted by Cond̩ Nast Traveler and MS-NBC Рonly fourteen percent of Americans have taken a volunteer holiday, but fifty-five percent say they would like to.

After running a few errands in town – picked them up at Maya Island Air yesterday morning – they caught the 11:40 from Belize City to Ambergris Caye. Both Heather and Cathy said they were glad to be home and both missed the island a lot since their last trip. If I had $1 for every time someone returning here has said that I would take you all out to dinner.

After checking into their room at Exotic Caye Beach Resort –  Cathy and Heather got to work right away as Kelly invited them back to the EC office a meeting to learn more about what they are working on while here [water water garden project for San Mateo] and see how Exotic Caye could get involved.
