Class C Motor Home – Tips On How To Volunteer While Vacationing

There are people who enjoy traveling across the country in their Class C motor home but choose to do so because they like volunteering. Philanthropy travel in a towable travel trailer or Class C motor home has become a positive trend line and is known by some as Volun-tourism. This means that RV travelers utilize their Class C motor home vacation as an effort to give back to their state or nation by volunteering.

Before hitting the road in your Class C motor home or towable RV, do the following

If you are interested in participating in Volun-tourism via your Class C motor home or other towable unit, begin by narrowing down the type of philanthropy that you would like to partake in when on the road. If you are a family, then get the whole family together. You will want to create a list of possible opportunities for you to do with your Class C motor home. Think about hobbies or interests, such as animal care, working with the elderly, building houses, etc.

After you have selected your cause, follow these tips

Choosing your cause can be difficult, but once you and your fellow Class C motor home RVers have decided, you should call the nonprofit. Look on the internet at Charity Navigator to see if the organization you want to serve is legitimate. Call them and speak to their volunteer coordinator or to the person with whom you and your companions will be working with to ask the following RV volunteer questions.

Ask the following questions when you talk to the nonprofit organization that you want to work with on your volunteer RV trip:

1. What will the organization expect from you during your volunteer stay?

2. What out of pocket expenses will you be expected to incur, such as a fee for service?

3. Do you and those participating need to sign paperwork prior to traveling in your RV?

4. Ask them about age restrictions if there are any so that you do not take young children when they are not allowed to help.

5. Ask if you can have a detailed list of what you will be doing when you are volunteering.

What if you cannot help this year via travel? Think about a donation!

Some of the nonprofits that you and your family wish to volunteer at when traveling with your recreational vehicle may have specific dates or time frames that do not complement when you can participate. If this is so, then think about giving a monetary gift instead. See what gift giving options are available online.
