We’ve got Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday. Let’s go for it and try to give a name to every day of the week following Thanksgiving. I’m declaring today World Travel Wednesday. It’s the day we all think about where we want to travel and explore in the coming year. And maybe we book some travel plans.
Who knows, maybe it’ll catch on.
In the spirit of World Travel Wednesday, I’ve got a way for you to win free travel and help others at the same time. I’m talking about Passports with Purpose. Passports With Purpose was founded in 2008 as a way to build community among travel bloggers and to give back to the places we, as travelers, visit. This year they are raising money to support Sustainable Harvest International’s (SHI’s) efforts in Honduras. For every $5000 raised, we can help a family learn to farm sustainably for five years.
Here’s how the fundraiser works: Browse the categories on the Passports with Purpose web site. For each $10 that you bid you receive one chance to win an individual prize. One hundred percent of donations, exclusive of PayPal fees, goes to SHI and your donation is tax deductible. Bidding for prizes is open until 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, December 17, 2014. Prize winners will be announced later that week.
So get on over there and start bidding on your next adventure. It’s World Travel Wednesday after all.
