Donate to charity by booking for travel by sylvng

Practically everything you do online nowadays can end up in a small donation to a charity of your choosing. Send an email, buy a book, click an ad, post a twitter update – just think of an action and an organization listed here on this blog will turn your action into charity money.

With over 55% of travel being booked online nowadays, travel is no exception. Here are some of the organizations that you can go to when booking travel so that your money goes toward a good cause:

  • Travel 4 Charity works in cooperation with World Vision Germany; if you make a booking going through their site (you can choose from agents like Expedia,, etc.), the commission for the sale will go toward World Vision’s work in Ethiopia.
  • Travel Only For Charity has a bunch of charity programs. For each travel booking you make 1% of your fare will be donated, if you host a destination event (my guess is that even a destination wedding would qualify) and a mimimum of $100 will be donated, or you can sign up for the TravelOnly rewards program and a donation will be made as well.
  • Wright Charity Travel gives 50% of their commission on your travel booking back to any charity of your choosing. You’ll have to fill out a form which is slightly more hassle, but that’s a small price to pay for being able to designate exactly where you want the money to go.

If any of you have tried out these sites, let me know how you like them. Happy travels!
