We’re big believers in the idea that new media can create positive change, and we’re always excited about others that believe the same. Passports With Purpose is exactly that. Last year some amazing travel bloggers came up with the idea of PWP, a fundraising campaign that would harness the power of travel bloggers and raise some money for a good cause during the holiday season. The campaign was so successful that it’s taking place again, this year raising funds to build a school in Cambodia.
The 2009 Passports With Purpose fundraising effort is supporting American Assistance for Cambodia, an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving opportunities for the youth and rural poor in Cambodia. If PWP raises $13,000, a new school gets to be built in Cambodia… obviously, we couldn’t resist in taking part. And either should you!
How to partake:
For each $10 donation that you make to AAfC, you will will be entered in the giveaway(s) of your choice. The fundraiser closes on December 21 and all proceeds go directly to AAfC.
What’s up for grabs?
There are some sweet prizes drawings that your donation can get you entered in. Here are just a few:
