We cannot say enough about how much we love the travel blogging community. Since officially starting our blog this year, we’ve experienced so much support and appreciation from our peers. We’ve met some awesome people (lifers, I tell ya) and have been able to forge friendships that will probably withstand the test of time… and maybe the life of our blog.
Our fellow travel bloggers are not only inspiring and helpful to us, but they also reach out to help those in need. Passports with Purpose is a travel blogger fundraiser that was founded in 2008 as a means to support and give back to the places that we travel to. Since it was founded, Passports with Purpose has raised enough money to build a school in Cambodia and an entire village in India.
This year, Passports with Purpose is teaming with Room to Read with the goal of building two libraries in Zambia. This fundraiser’s target goal is $80,000 and so far, is off to a good start.
How it works:
Travel bloggers from all corners of the globe (and web) have come together to provide awesome prizes that can be won in a raffle. These prizes include Kindle Fires, digital cameras, luxury hotel stays, and even Eurail passes. Ten dollars buys you one ticket for whichever prize you’re interested in. Like most raffles, the more tickets you buy, the better your chances of winning.
What if I want to donate without entering the raffle?
Not a problem! You can still donate without entering to win one of the prizes.
Head over to http://passportswithpurpose.org and check out all of the cool prizes that you could win. We’d tell you which ones we entered but don’t want to lower our chances (wink wink, nudge nudge). All of the prizes would make amazing Christmas gifts and you can rest assured that you’re supporting a wonderful cause.
