Please Pass the Fish Head: Planning a Volunteer Vacation with Kids
Volunteer travel is a popular trend--but can you really mix it with kids?
As more nonprofit organizations look for travelers interested in volunteering their time while on vacation, more parents are asking--do I have to be an adventurous young single to do that? Or can I take my kids on a volunteer adventure we'll never forget?
And the practical question--what would it take to get us there?
It takes less than you think, but more than you can imagine. In this book, you'l discover practical ways to:
- find the right volunteer vacation for your family,
- understand travel planning from research to booking,
- pack the right things--tangible and intangible,
- evaluate what works for your family needs,
- prepare for work with nonprofits and charities--both emotionally and physically,
- determine how to follow up once you get home again,
Real life stories from our family travel to China, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and more accompany informative chapters that take you step by step in planning, executing, and continuing the perfect volunteer experience for your whole family. Checklists give you practical ways to watch your volunteer travel preparations become complete.
Voluntourism isn't just packing bags--it's a commitment to something larger than your family for the benefit of both sides. It's an adventure. It's a cross-cultural experience. It's an experience that needs preparation and planning to be the best experience it can be.
Click on the book cover above to read an excerpt about what that preparation could be for your family to begin your adventure in volunteer travel.
Finding Answers (A Rescue Alaska Mystery Book 2)
He watched the boy skipping rocks across the clear, still, water. From the cover of dense forest he listened to the childish squeals of delight as the flat hard surface of the stone met the firm unyielding force of the lake. Each hop resulted in an ever widening web of rings, each ring, larger, yet less intense than that which came before. Life, he mused, was like those rings. The further you traveled from the point of origin, the wider your reach, but the less intense the effect. Hed spent a lifetime struggling to make his mark in the larger rings, but now, hed decided, was time to avenge the iniquities of his past, and claim the inner ring as his own.
Rescue Alaska is the eighth series by USA Today Bestselling Author Kathi Daley. It is a fast moving mystery series with a paranormal twist.
Rescue Alaska is a small town in northern Alaska where visitors come to hike and ski. Harmony Carson is a lifelong resident who volunteers as a member of the local search and rescue team. Harmony has a unique gift which she often considers a curse. She is able to 'see' the individuals she is meant to help rescue, and more often than not she can feel their fear and their pain as well. When she isn't aiding in a rescue, Harmony works at Neverland - the bar owned by her brother in law Jake, and volunteers at the local animal shelter. Harmony lives in a rustic cabin with six dogs, four cats, six kittens, eight rabbits, and a blind mule named Homer.
In the second book in the series, Jake and Harmony are in the process of training a new search and rescue dog when they get a call that a four year old boy has gone missing from the cabin his family rented while on vacation. They join the search and rescue team, along with the local police, in the hope of finding the child before it is too late. Along the way they discover the freshly dumped body of an important member of the community. The police are stumped as to why this popular town resident would have been murdered, until a second community member goes missing and a disturbing pattern begins to emerge.
