This educational documentary from the Center for Responsible Travel (CREST) examines "travelers' philanthropy" - the growing global movement by responsible tourism companies and travelers to support social service, environmental, micro enterprise, and other types of projects in host communities where tourism takes place. Filmmakers Charlene Music and Peter Jordan talk with community members, travelers, and experts about both the benefits as well as the pitfalls of this relatively new form of development assistance.
