It can be interesting to see the choices different U.S. ex-presidents make in leveraging their public stature to promote causes. Bush Sr. chooses skydiving. Here are some others:

Jimmy Carter

Bill Clinton

George W. Bush (Actually, it's hard to find anything useful he's done since retiring.)
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.
