The Best School Fundraiser

by Danielle on December 8, 2009

During the first three months of our travels not a day went by without hearing some version of, “Why aren’t you kids in school?”  I held back the snarky answers and we joke about it now, but I do think about those whose answer is, “Because there isn’t one.”

YOU can change that!  Fellow travel bloggers (and great writers) Beth Whitman, Debbie Dubrow, Michelle Duffy, and Pam Mendel have teamed up to form Passports With Purpose.  This year the charity of choice is   American Assistance for Cambodia (AAfC).  And we want to help them build a school in Cambodia.


Need a little more incentive?  How about winning a prize?  Every $10 donation enters you to win one of many awesome prizes, including cameras, hotel packages, and cool travel gear.

So far the original goal of $13,000 has been met (yea!), but they still could use more for extras like a water filter, garden, and a school nurse.

We aren’t selling any cookies, popcorn, or gift wrap this year.  I have declared this our school fundraiser, and I ask you to please consider participating.

What a great idea. I plan to donate just have to decide what I want to win.

Remind me to give you a donation when we see you at Christmas. Is a good cause!

My name is Sarah, I work for, a rental car search engine.

I stumbled on and was interested in advertising on your front-page.

We are interested in a link featuring our company.

Would you be interested in something like this? Also, would you be
willing to set up a 6 month or 1 year deal?

Please let me know. Thank you for your time.
