Volunteer Before You Die

My publisher, Dogs Eye View Media, also publishes many other books about volunteerism around the world. The Voluntary Traveler, for instance, is an anthology about different volunteer’s experiences in all kinds of global work; I am a contributing author.

Nola Lee Kelsey, editor of The Voluntary Traveler and author of many books including 700 Places to Volunteer Before You Die, has a great blog about voluntourism around the world.

Recently, my experiences with the children of India were featured on the blog, which you can read below:

Passage to India: A Volunteer Voyage – Part 1

Passage to India: A Volunteer Voyage – Part 2

Today, Nola and I also recorded a podcast about my experiences – stay tuned for that, which will be released next Tuesday, July 13.

And as always – happy volunteering!

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."
