Thomas J. Story for Sunset
Prev None of 5 Next
Most people go on vacation and use it as a time to totally indulge — eat and drink too much, spend way too much money at the spa, sleep in until a ridiculous hour and buy souvenirs no one actually wants. But not TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie. Blake's One for One business model is founded on the idea of giving back, so it should come as no huge shock that the Chief Shoe Giver makes sure to do some good for the world on every adventure.

The entrepreneur was featured on the January cover of Sunset and shared some great programs with us about how to experience your next vacation on a different level. Check out these five great organizations and then start planning and volunteering!

(If you're not headed to one of the following destinations, Mycoskie suggests the app Golden, which connects volunteers with organizations based on their interests.)
