Donate to Passports With Purpose; Win Prizes & I’ll Match Your Donation!
Last week’s post provided suggestions on gifts you could give the traveler in your family. But if you’re a traveler yourself, today I’m asking you to give back this holiday season.
Passports With Purpose
Passports With Purpose is a non-profit organization that gives back to the destinations travelers visit. Uniting travel bloggers from around the internet, last year they raised $64,128 to build houses in India. This year, they are partnering with Room to Read to build a library in Zambia, Africa – home to Victoria Falls, one of my favorite travel destinations.
How to Donate
Each year, travel bloggers from around world secure prizes to be donated to the Passports With Purpose Fundraiser. And this year, there are some fantastic ones!
For $10 per entry, individuals (like you) can select which drawing for prizes they would like to enter. They can enter as many times as they like for as many prizes as they like. At the end of the donation period, 1 winner will be selected for each prize. This years prizes include:
- P^Cubed Pickpocket Proof Pants (You can read last week’s review)
- Kindle Fire
- XBox 360
- 1 Year Boingo Internet Account
- Tons of multi-night hotel stays around the world
- And a whole lot more!
I’ll Match Your Donation!
I’ve been wanting to find a way to build some social responsibility into adventureswithben.com and admittedly, I missed the deadline for securing a prize and participating in this very worthy initiative. So instead, I’m going to make a one-time, matching cash donation for every one of you readers who participates by donating at least $10. Here’s the details…
- Go to the Passports With Purpose Donate Page and make a donation of your choice.
- Comment on my Facebook Wall by sharing what prize you selected.
- Include the following statement in your post (or something to that effect), “I supported Passports With Purpose and you should too!”
- Include the following link in your post so other can donate too… http://www.passportswithpurpose.org/donate/
- Smile at the good cheer you’ve brought.
So, stop wasting your time and donate today. And comment with what prize(s) you selected!
Thank you so much and I’ll see you out there…!
