After a disaster occurs in a city or a country, tourism falls off drastically. This is a double-whammy for the affected region, as it happens during a time when they desperately need income. Once the major effects of the disaster have been mitigated, one of the best things you can do to help is to visit the country. This was true after the earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. People scratched the entire country off their list off their travel itineraries, when only Christchurch was affected. A group of travel bloggers are cooperating to get out the message that New Zealand is still open for business. The slide show below features photos of other destinations around the country to send a message that visiting New Zealand after the earthquake is safe. You can read more about this campaign here. Please consider visiting this beautiful country.
