How Can I Make a Difference???
 
Hi,
I am planning for a 3.5 months western europe motorcycling trip.
I am going through about 15 countries.
I would like to be involved in with a charity organization during this trip or some how make a difference.
Please let me know what options are out there.
Thanks

Look at your skills and your passions. You may take for granted a skill or knowledge that you have that may benefit others you share with. An simple Internet search for 'volunteer opportunities' will give you a start. There are a number of sites that will pair up your skills with groups that need them.

At the very least you can make a difference by being humble, thoughtful and caring of those you meet along the way. Don't forget that you represent your country as well as overland travelers in general. :-)

U R welcome, glad to help.

I going to do to the same, travel and volunteer, but in the Americas. A great way to help a community, meet people, learn a language, get some rest in a long trip, etc.
