Passports with Purpose Online Auction Opens

As a travel writer I am blessed to get to see the world. And while the world is a wonderous place, it’s also filled with heartbreaking poverty and struggle. In 2008 several of my fellow travel writers founded Passports with Purpose to help leverage the power of travel writers to help out the people they meet on their travels through an amazing Passports with Purpose online auction of bucket list travel with all proceeds this year benefiting Worldreader.passport purposes


The online fundraiser takes place Nov. 8-18, 2015. During this time you make a $10 donation, with each $10 a chance to win the prizes in the collection. Nearly 100% of your donation goes directly to the charity and it is tax deductible. Not a bad way to score a great vacation! Click here to bid!

Win a 2-nt stay at the Four Seasons Scottsdale!


As an avid reader this is near and dear to my heart. Worldreader and the Passport to Purpose auction will bring digital readers and more than 50,000 ebooks to five libraries in Kenya, helping over 6,000 kids, teachers and parents.


While there are a host of amazing travel related items up for grabs, I’m a bit biased to the donation I secured from one of my favorite hotel brands, The Four Seasons.
