      "Do you have the freedom to work remotely? Do you like to travel? Are you super adventurous? If so this might be just the thing you need. Who hasn't wished they could travel the world and see all those things most people are too busy working to make time for? Good resource for people that are tired of sitting in a cube or home office and are looking to get a bit more of life out of life."

I'm not sure how legal it is to not pay people, but for part-time temporary work it might be a nice way to see another part of the world when you couldn't afford it otherwise. I would also think it would be a way to meet people in a way that is very different than the usual vacation."
