Passports With Purpose: Building a School and Then Some

leave a comment »

It’s always inspiring to take part in a powerful movement. I was blown away in the last month and a half by the amount of response to Passports With Purpose, the online fundraising campaign powered by travel bloggers. With an original goal of $13,000, PWP surpassed expectations and raised over $26,000, allowing them not only to build a school in rural Cambodia with American Assistance for Cambodia, but also providing students with a school nurse, clean water, school supplies and at least one complete meal per day.

A big congrats goes out to Scott Ruthfield who scored the Sierra Designs Lighting XT 4 tent.

Here’s to another successful PWP next year!
