An international effort has been launched today across the blogosphere to raise funds for Heifer International, a non-profit organization that aims end hunger and poverty around the globe. Passports With Purpose is the brainchild of four Seattle travel bloggers and writers: Debbie Dubrow of Delicious Baby, Pam Mandel of Nerd’s Eye View. Michelle Duffy, Wanderlust and Lipstick’s WanderMom and Beth Whitman, editor of Wanderlust and Lipstick. They have rounded up travel bloggers around the globe to participate. Each has secured a prize to be won in a raffle. I’m offering up a $150 gift certificate to B&H Photo in New York to be sent anywhere in the U.S. The winner can use the gift certificate to purchase merchandise online, over the phone and in the store. Check out the full list of very cool prizes here.
Here is how it works: Once you’ve chosen a prize(s) go to First Giving to make a raffle donation. For each $10 donation you make, you'll be entered into the raffle for the prize you've selected. Don’t forget to enter your e-mail address and the prize you would like to win in the comments field so that you can be notified if you win. The organizers will pull winners and notify them via e-mail December 30th. For more info please visit Passports With Purpose. Please spread the word.
