We LOVE Beach Bum CARES!

Areas like the Caribbean and Mexico are traditionally the most popular honeymoon and vacation spots among American couples and families. While we are laying in the sun, sipping on a delicious daiquiri at our favorite resort, children and families just a few miles away are living in extreme poverty. Beach Bum CARES was founded to bridge the barrier between these very different lifestyles and give hope to the communities that provide us with such fabulous vacation opportunities.

Beach Bum CARES partners with schools and orphanages in your favorite vacation destinations, providing them with financial aid, relief and educational supplies. A team made up of Beach Bum CARES board members, vacationers and clients are then sent to these locations to personally deliver the gifts collected by the organization and make a difference in the lives of those most in need.

The organization pairs its volunteers with a partner in their general area of travel and provides transportation to and from the site. Anyone traveling in the area can participate, not just customers of Beach Bum Vacations! If you are interested in the opportunity to give back while on vacation, be sure to contact Beach Bum CARES through their website at!

If this opportunity just isn't for you, there are plenty of other rewarding ways to contribute to the organizations. Their website offers instructions for donating monetary funds and supplies that will directly benefit these communities as well.

If you are looking for a way to incorporate philanthropy in to your big day, consider donating your time and efforts with Beach Bum CARES!
