I am the Chairman of a volun-tourism company called Hands Up Holidays. It does great work helping the world – you go on a holiday to one of 35 odd countries and whilst on a luxury holiday, you get to do a few days work with the local community, say build a school, work in an Aids orphanage, dig some holes, teach English, carry water, whatever takes your fancy. People who have been on it, well 95% of them, state that it is categorically the best holiday that they have ever had in their entire life! So they really are rather great trips!
Chris Hill, the founder and CEO of Hands Up Holidays, just forwarded me this story on Sean Penn. He may not be your ultimate cup of tea and he has no doubt had a few issues in his life (who hasn’t…) but I thought that this was a very well written article (great use of our English language!), some great photos, well worth the read and who would have known of the recent good that Sean Penn has been doing! Good for him.
So this is not related to my business, Business Changing, but I thought if you have a spare several minutes, and want to be inspired as to how you can impact the world (especially in these turbulent times was find ourselves in today…) then have a read…
Sean Penn article Oh yes, by the way, if you have any way of getting in contact with Sean Penn, can you please let me know… He would be a great ambassador for Hands Up Holidays! Thank you.
