Travel legend Arthur Frommer recently identified in his syndicated column the work of four USA travel-related nonprofits as worthy of donor support. One of those is Hostelling International USA.
About HI-USA, Mr. Frommer said “the organization enables a great many people to travel who otherwise could not afford to do so, and it obviously is dependent on grants and contributions for a large part of its expenses. Though you might never have thought of this institution as an object of charitable giving, you definitely should.”
Of course, we agree! HI-USA builds intercultural understanding among hundreds of thousands of young people each year by bringing them to together in our hostels. The hostel stay is a powerful tool for promoting international exchange. And related hostel programming increases the impact.
