Alderbrook Resort

Alderbrook Resort & Spa

Imagine sitting on the deck, a glass of wine in hand, while watching and eagle catch thermals above the canal.

With your $10 donation, you could be kayaking on Washington’s Hood Canal, enjoying dinner at The Alderbrook Restaurant or relaxing at the Alderbrook Resort & Spa. This is just one of  the travel prizes up for grabs at this year’s Passports with Purpose.

Passports with Purpose is celebrating their sixth year of fund-raising for a cause. I’m pleased to say that this travel blogger has supported Passports with Purpose from the start and I continue to be involved in 2013.

Last year we raised $100,000 for Water.org to fund five water wells in Haiti.

This year, close to 150 travel bloggers from around the world will participate in Passports with Purpose 2013.

Together with your support, the money will fund buildOn to help construct three primary schools and fund three Adult Literary Programs in the Sikasso Region of Mali, Africa.

"Scream"

Norway celebrates Edvard Munch, painter of Scream

Edvard Munch is Norway’s most beloved artist, and 2013 marks the 150th anniversary of his birth. The whole year is being dedicated to Munch’s life and work. As a part of this year-long celebration, Visit Norway is offering the chance to win two round-trip tickets to Oslo.

On January 23, Visit Norway released a 30-second film entitled Scream. The goal is to make it go viral, and honor Edvard Munch (whose most famous painting is Scream) in the process.

"Pacific Ocean sunset"

Wake up to the sounds of the Pacific Ocean at Timber Cove Inn, Jenner, California


Want to know what it’s like to wake up to the sounds of the Pacific Ocean in Northern California? Perhaps you’d prefer to go horseback riding in Wickenburg, Arizona, followed by a dip in the swimming pool and massage in the afternoon?

Imagine if you had a chance at either of these prizes for only $10 bucks?  That’s right – $10 dollars. Last year someone won my prize of a three night/four-day junior suite with ocean view for two at Secrets Marquis Los Cabos for $10.  On my equestrian blog, a lucky winner spent $10 on a Passports with Purpose donation and won a trip to Echo Valley Ranch in Canada for three nights/four days.

With your $10 donation, you could be kayaking on the Pacific Ocean in Jenner, California and kicking back at Timber Cover Inn or horseback riding at Rancho de los Caballeros in Wickenburg, Arizona. These are just two of  the travel prizes up for grabs at this year’s Passports with Purpose.

Passports with Purpose is celebrating their fifth year of fund-raising for a cause. I’m pleased to say that this travel blogger has supported Passports with Purpose from the start and I continue to be involved in 2012.

Last year we raised $90,000 for Room to Read and built two libraries in Africa.

This year, more than 150 travel bloggers from around the world will participate in Passports with Purpose 2012.

Together with your support, the money will fund wells in two communities in rural Haiti, providing much-needed clean water.
