TRAVEL MATTERS is a new online effort that will permit thousands of travelers to make a difference to the countries they visit.

TRAVEL MATTERS will steer travelers around the world, permitting them to make an online donation to a non-profit organization of their choosing.

"Travelers can make a donation of any amount in an area that matters to them: protecting wildlife, preserving the environment, helping with community development, youth and health projects in the countries they are visiting," states Dominique Callimanopulos, founder of Elevate Destinations, and creator of TRAVEL MATTERS.

"This is an extraordinarily efficient way to deepen tourists' involvement in other countries, and make a difference to people and resources around the world," says Callimanopulos.

Beneficiaries are screened by experienced staff and advisors. Descriptions of each beneficiary are available on the TRAVEL MATTERS site:
