Are you ready to do something big? Combine your love of travel with your desire to make a difference in the world by taking a Fathom cruise. It’s the first of its kind, providing passengers the opportunity to do real, on-the-ground work in the Dominican Republic and Cuba.
Starting in the Dominican Republic, Fathom will be taking passengers on the journey of a lifetime. The Dominican Republic is a country of great beauty but also great need. 40% of the population lives below the poverty line and the average household income is less than $6,000. Working with local communities, passengers on a Fathom cruise will have the opportunity to work alongside local residents to provide assistance in a variety of ways from teaching English to fostering local entrepreneurship.
Want to learn more? On Tuesday, March 29 at 4pm PT, join me and Anne Taylor Hartzell of Hip Travel Mama as we host a Twitter chat all about Fathom, social impact travel, what it means, how it works and how you can join the movement to make the world a better place, one cruise at a time.
Simply follow us on Twitter @NatalieDiScala, @HipTravelMama and @FathomTravel and follow the hashtag #TravelDeep to join the conversation. We hope to see you there!
