This year again I’m happy to announce I’m participating in the travel blogger’s fundraiser, Passports with Purpose.
Each year the Passports With Purpose founders select a charity based on several criteria along with our sense of what would inspire us and the Travel Bloggers community.
Here’s how it works – The 2013 online fundraising event will run from November 25, 2013 at 11:59pm EST and end on December 9, 2013 at 11:59pm EST. During that time you will be able to donate $10 on the catalog of prizes. Donating more lets you choose more prizes or increase your odds of winning the exact prize you want. At the end of the fundraiser Passports with Purpose will randomly choose the winners. Over the past five years, this amazing organization has raised $100,000 to fund projects including Heifer International, build a School in Cambodia, and in 2012, Passports with Purpose raised over USD $110,000 for Water.org through the collaborative efforts of more than 200 travel bloggers and 1,242 individual donors who bid on one or more of the 143 prizes . To me, the fact that each year the donations get larger and larger mean more people are reaching out to help as our travel blogging community grows, and nothing puts a smile on my face like knowing that together we are making a difference in someone’s lives.
This year I have a fabulous prize to giveaway that is really cool- a Scottevest Men’s or Women’s Travel Vest!
