A few weeks ago, I wrote an article for (the totally awesome) Giving City Austin about how travel can help kids become more generous, empathetic and altruistic.

I decided to dig into it bit, and found some research that supports the cool claims of so many parents. As it turns out, travel can be a great teacher of the stuff that really matters in life.
