"Voluntourism--taking a vacation that includes some charity work--is a travel idea whose time has come. In our May 2008 issue, Condé Nast Traveler held the World Savers Contest, asking readers to report on their good deeds with an essay and photo documenting a recent voluntourism trip. Our winner, Beverly Orthwein of Greenwich, Connecticut, displayed that passion and commitment we were looking for. Read her winning entry below, and stay tuned to the Daily Traveler to read more of our favorite contest entries."
