“Impact vacations” trending

Researchers show that Americans prioritize “making a difference.”

That’s why I’m not surprised so many families are taking “impact vacations.”

Helping to install a park playground, paint a house for a low-income family or volunteer at a special event for developmentally disabled adults are being included in summer trips and travel.

The definition of what it means to raise children in a healthy, balanced environment is expanding to include helping those outside the family circle.
