It’s that time of year again - the holiday season has rolled around, and it’s time for shopping, gift-getting, and wrapping. While we try to think of others throughout the year, we make a special effort to help out during the holidays. That’s why each year since Adventures by Daddy was launched, I’ve been proud to participate in the Passports with Purpose travel blogging fundraiser. This year’s Passports with Purpose beneficiary is Worldreader, and funds raised will be used specifically to purchase e-readers and e-books for libraries in Kenya. Each $10 donation to the Passports With Purpose fundraiser will give you a chance to enter to win great travel prizes such as a two-night getaway to Great Wolf Lodge. Keep reading for more details on the Great Wolf Lodge prize pack as well as the Passports with Purpose fundraiser’s beneficiary - Worldreader.
Each year the travel blogging community comes together for an annual online fundraiser known as Passports with Purpose (PwP), in an effort to do long-lasting good for people around the world. This year, PwP is raising money promote literacy with Worldreader. The funds raised in 2015 from Passports with Purpose campaign will bring digital readers to five libraries in western Kenya. The e-readers will provide an estimated 6,250 children, teachers and parents with access to more than 50,000 books. The fundraising effort began on November 8, 2015 at 11:59 pm EST and ends on November 18, 2015.
The Passports with Purpose fundraiser works by making a $10 tax-deductible donation on the PwP site, please follow this link to donate. For each $10 donation, a person can enter to win a prize of their choice – it could be the Great Wolf Lodge getaway described in this post or any of the great travel prizes – click here to see the full list. Donations for multiple prizes and multiple $10 increments are acceptable, as well as donations without entering for a prize.
