World Traveler Inspires Global Volunteers

In 2008, Shannon O’Donnell decided to travel the world.

Forty countries and a few years later, not only has Shannon been named, National Geographic’s 2013 Traveler of the Year, she’s written a book about international volunteering, The Volunteer Traveler’s Handbook –

Through her blog Shannon changes the lives of travelers with stories, photographs and advice.  She founded an independent database for grassoots organizations all over the world – – and she speaks to highschool and college students about the importance of cultivating global citizenship and supporting ethical international volunteering organizations.

Here’s a clip of Shannon talking with Daytime, a lifestyle show broadcast on WFLA TV/Tampa Bay, about how Just Doing Something really can make a difference.
