Say hello to Tyson Mayr

Tyson traded in his suit and tie for a backpack and a map when he set off to see the world. Since then, he’s been trekking across the globe, helping charities do more for people in need. With the help of Skype, Tyson adds a new dimension to social good by allowing sponsors to see the results of the good they’re doing.
