New Orleans, LA ? In 2008, 84 displaced New Orleans families moved in to homes built by volunteers. According to the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity, this is nearly eight times the number of homes constructed for those in need Pre-Katrina. In effort to continue the tremendously successful rebuilding of the Big Easy, the New Orleans Marriott has launched Build & Bond, offering voluntourism groups a special nightly rate of $84, including all taxes. This rate is based on up to quad occupancy, which could bring the price per person, per night as low as $21.
