Erika Garcia, CEO of Vacations for a Cause Foundation says, “If you want to do more good in the world and make more money you should go on vacation." Erika’s clientele have included high profile clients such as Eva Longoria, Chris Tucker, Sofia Veraga, Former President of Mexico Vicente Fox, and along side collaborating with high-profile foundations and non-profits spanning from Mexico to Brazil such as ones founded by Shakira and Rafa Marquez. Combining her decades of experience in the tourism industry and her philanthropic work to improve the lives of impoverished people throughout Latin America, she provides people a way to make people feel good, by doing good, and by offering the opportunity to take a vacation. Erika will share her ABC's to having a great vacation. It’s quite plausible that people would be happier and healthier if they took a vacation, yet last year alone approximately 42% of Americans didn’t take a single vacation day.
