What better holiday gift than helping needy families in Honduras for as little as $10, while giving yourself the chance to spend two nights in Scottsdale, Arizona? There are so many things to see and do in Scottsdale and the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North is the place to stay while in Arizona. The Scottsdale luxury property is partnering with me and Passports with Purpose to support Sustainable Harvest International in 2014.
With your $10 donation, you and a guest could be lounging by the pool, hiking Pinnacle Peak mountain or dining at Talavera restaurant. This travel prize is one of many offered through Passports with Purpose 2014.
Passports with Purpose is celebrating their seventh year of fund-raising for a cause. I’m pleased to say that as an active adventure travel blogger I have supported Passports with Purpose since its inception in 2008. Last year we built two schools and two adult literary programs in Mali, Africa.
Over 100 travel bloggers world-wide will participate to support Sustainable Harvest International. Together with your support, the money raised will provide tools and training to assist needy families in Honduras.
To see a list of prizes on the Passports With Purpose website check here. Each donated prize will link back to a full description of the prizes on the blogger’s website.
Your purchase of a $10 raffle ticket will help support Passports with Purpose and ultimately teach families in Honduras how to help themselves. For each $10 in donations that you make to Passports with Purpose, you will be entered to win a prize (or prizes) of your choice. The online fundraising event begins on Monday, December 1, 2014 and closes at 11:59 p.m. EST on December 17, 2014. On December 21, 2014 Passports with Purpose volunteers will notify prize winners. All proceeds go directly to Sustainable Harvest International.
