Add A One-Of-A-Kind, Amazing Experience On Your Next Vacation AND Help Support The Local Community

Visit.org is a worldwide leading organization that helps vacationers book one-day travel experiences with do-good organizations, where 100% of the proceeds go back to the local communities.


Out of the $2.3 trillion travel and tourism industry, only about 5% stays in the local community. Wishing to change this, as well as provide an opportunity for cultural integration, CEO and Co-Founder of visit.org Michal Alter has created an eye-opening, transformative experience, which includes genuine human interaction to improve the public knowledge of and engagement with society's needs.

The idea of immersion travel turned into a global movement when Alter teamed up with local non-profits and community-based organizations hailing from all corners of the world and joining in their passion for experiential travel and social impact. Visit.org is building the world's leading platform for social impact travel experiences, allowing millions of users to discover, support, and interact with 'do-good' organizations both virtually and in-person. They are now on track for every trip itinerary (personal or professional) to include a minimum of one half-day social impact travel experience by 2025.

"We want to make the world a better place through travel," says Alter.

What are daily immersion travel programs? Here are some examples.

  • You can take a day walk in New Dehli, learn about the marginalized children of the city, and support the shelter homes' provisions of healthcare and education.
  • Or you could hike Machu Picchu, connect with local families in the mountain region, and eat locally sourced cocoa mate.
  • Or you can even be like Rajvi Desai from New York... she chose the League of Kitchen Tours, a non-profit that offers an immersive culinary adventure in which immigrants host cooking workshops in their homes. The cost of the workshop is invested back into the immigrant families that League of Kitchens supports throughout the city.

Baby Countdown Enters Final Days - The Creation Of Us (S1:E7)

** OGTV's first The Creation Of Us (S1) playlist story of the week follows Aydian and Jenilee as they enter the final planning stages for the birth of their baby! **

What is more dramatic than the dwindling days before the birth of a couple's first child? In this episode of The Creation Of Us, the countdown is on as Aydian and Jenilee scramble to learn all they have to know about childbirth and being parents.

Although there is much to do, the parents-to-be are pretty organized. First, they sit down with their doula to come up with a day of birth and postpartum plan. They discuss their ideas for keeping Jenilee comfortable, and create checklists and guidelines to help manage all the details. Afterward, they are off to a birthing class where they go through what the actual birth will be like.

"The birthing class always makes me feel so much more secure about giving birth," Jenilee relates. "It's comforting to be developing a toolbox so I have things to grab from when the birth actually happens." Aydian has concerns and questions and their birthing teacher, Sarah, walks them through different techniques for the actual birth and things they can practice at home.

After the birthing class, they meet with their midwife for the first time. While a little nervous about a first meeting with someone so integral to the birth, Jenilee and Aydian are very excited to have both a doula and a midwife on board. "Jenilee and I chose to have a midwife because the birth process is so intimate," Aydian notes. "Our plan is to birth in a place that doesn't feel like a hospital. Ideally, if we are in a birthing center that makes us feel like we are in our own home, we can give that to ourselves and our child for the first moments of birth."

Jenilee and Aydian hope that if they are able to follow their plan, it will make the birth feel less medical and more spiritual, true to who they are as a couple. The clock is ticking – join them as they start the final countdown to the biggest day of their lives.
