Roadmonkey is a social business that offers what they call "adventure philanthropy." What makes the company distinct is that part of your trip could be tax deductible. Yes, that's right. "Our volunteer projects are like flashmobs for good: In 1 to 3 days, after your adventure challenge, you & your team members build a sustainable improvement to the health, education, environment or economy of a local community in need," the team explains on its website. Destinations of the trips include Nicaragua, India, Vietnam, Peru, Tanzania and Montana. The trips and destinations vary by month.
Roadmonkey has been featured on a variety of media outlets including National Geographic Traveler, the Huffington Post, the Oprah Magazine, CNN and ABC.
