Echo Valley Ranch

Imagine where you could go for $10

Want to know what it’s like to be waited on at an all-inclusive resort in Los Cabos, Mexico? Perhaps you’d prefer to go horseback riding in the Cariboo region of Canada followed with a Thai massage in the afternoon? Imagine if you had a chance at either of these prizes and it only cost you $10 bucks?  That’s right – $10 dollars. Last year someone won a seven day Norwegian Coastal Voyage for two aboard the Hurtigruten ship for $10.  Any of these travel prizes could be yours with some luck at a raffle and a $10 donation to Passports with Purpose.

Passports with Purpose is celebrating their fourth year of fund raising for a cause. I’m pleased to say that this Uptake Lodging Editor and What a Trip travel blogger has supported Passports with Purpose from the start and I continue to be involved in 2011.

Last year we raised $58,132. in support of Land for Tilers’ Freedom or LAFTI, an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of Dalit (untouchable) population in India.

This year, more than 100 travel bloggers from around the world will participate in Passports with Purpose 2011.

Together, with your support, we plan to build two libraries in Zambia, Africa. This year, we’re supporting Room to Read.

Passport with Purpose Prizes

To see a list of prizes on the Passports With Purpose website. 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 build two libraries in Africa. For each $10 in donations that you make  to Room to Read, you will will be entered to win a prize (or prizes) of your choice. The fundraiser begins on November 30th and closes on December 16, 2011. All proceeds go directly to Room to Read.
