What happens when travel bloggers get together to do something really worthwhile? Passports With Purpose.
What is Passports with Purpose? A group of travel bloggers -- Pam Mandel, Debbie Dubrow, Michelle Duffy and Beth Whitman -- pull together a raffle to raise money to build a school in Cambodia. Last year, it was to support Heifer International.
Turns out, they've already met their goal for this year, but here are a few reasons you should donate anyway.
ONE: Additional money will go to providing clean water, a vegetable garden and a school nurse for the school. No further explanation needed, right?
TWO: Matador Network has donated free tuition to Matador U -- Matador's online travel writing program -- as one of the raffle prizes. I've had the opportunity to meet and work with quite a few graduates and students of the U. It's amazing how well they are prepared for the world of travel writing.It's a prize worth it's weight in cows and gold.
THREE: The way this raffle works shows the very best travel blogging and social media has to offer. You give money to a good cause while simultaneously connecting with a group of the most interesting, pro-social and forward thinking bloggers on the internet.
Each donation of $10 enters you to win!
So do it. Do it now!
