Your Vacation is Only the Beginning.
iCare Travel enables travelers to help the world’s poor and underprivileged.
Make a Difference in a Way That Moves You
While visiting some of the world’s most fascinating destinations!
Saving the World One Vacation at a Time
At iCare, we believe the world can be different—a better, more enjoyable place—and each one of us can make it so.
Your vacation is only the beginning…
iCare makes it possible for travelers to improve lives in ways of their own choosing.
While vacationing in one of the world’s most fascinating destinations, iCare travelers
“make a difference” in ways that touch their heart.
iCare Travelers see a way to help with a situation they care about…
and then they act.
The Foundation’s iCareShare program is the only one of its kind. Travelers enjoy a customized leisure vacation at one of our Featured Destinations, and then choose a way to make a difference. Our “Wish List” donation items are created in partnership with local nonprofits who understand the needs of the community at large, as perceived by the local community. The needs are often basic, such as clean water, education, the welfare of the elderly, and of animals. Other Wish List items just help people in need enjoy their lives more.
Doing this work has revealed a wonderful thing:
It makes us feel great. And it makes the traveler—you—feel great as well.
Get involved! iCareShare
The iCare Travel Foundation enables travelers to help the world’s poor and underprivileged, while fostering cross-cultural connections between givers and recipients.
The goal of The Foundation, achieved in partnership with regional nonprofit organizations, is to establish a new model for vacationing in underserved destinations worldwide that enhances well-being, peace and understanding, and creates role models for “doing good on the global stage” back home.
What is the world’s most urgent problem?
“To understand that we have a common stake in our future.
If we continue to see problems as
‘us versus them’… we’re never going to succeed.”
– iCare Travel founder Noel Sutter speaks on behalf of the UN Chronicle to Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, one of the world’s most
influential international economic advisors and former director of the UN Millennium Project.
Many of Us Yearn to
Make a Real Difference
in the World…
It felt good to give Eduardo the means to fix the roof of his ant house. Good luck with his tourist attraction. I have bees, so helping and learning about ant colonies was fun.“
