Tours For Humanity
Social Innovations Journal Features Tours for Humanity
Social Innovations Journal features a column by our very own Bo Hammond on traveling with purpose. Bo’s article discusses “using moving stories of history to help people. Tales about the heroes of yesteryear generate not only inspiration for travelers but funds for the charities we support: the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Ashoka, and Honor Flight. We also donate tours to nonprofits and causes as fundraising tools, all the while moving towards our goal of B-Corp certification. The idea is to transform travel into a force for good. We know that even with scaling we are still small actors on a very large stage. That’s why one of our mottoes is “a tour won’t save the world, but it’s a step in the right direction.” Read on…

DC Inno Covers Tours for Humanity Launch
DC Inno, an authority on local innovation in DC, covered Tours for Humanity’s launch and stated, “Life-threatening situations tend to prompt those most affected to reflect on what they’ve done, and after coming to the realization that life is too short and fragile, Hammond and Maurer decided it was time to do something meaningful to not only fight the disease Maurer battled, but to make the world better in general. In that spirit, the dynamic duo launched Tours for Humanity to provide walking tours of Washington, D.C. But when you take their tour, you’re not receiving the run-of-the-mill textbook guide, you’re receiving a one-of-a-kind experience.” Read on…
We started Tours for Humanity to continually give back to and promote causes we believe in. Our endeavor began in the neighborhood bar on a bleary New Year’s Day. That’s where we first met. Little did we know that shortly thereafter, Lisa would battle through cancer. That brush with disease and darkness is why we started this enterprise. Now every day we work so that the next day will be a bit better.
