Rediscover the Spirit of Giving: Passports with Purpose (Holiday in Cambodia)

December 17th, 2009 · No Comments · Misc

Are you tired of navigating aggressive shoppers at the mall, cranky gate agents at the airport and web stores where you can’t order anything because they are offline for maintenance?

Rediscover the true spirit of giving by making a donation through Passports With Purpose.  For as little as US$10 you can help build a school in Cambodia and win prize of your choice.

A holiday in Cambodia where the slums got so much soul.

This year’s beneficiary is American Assistance for Cambodia (AAfC), an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to improving opportunities for the youth and rural poor in Cambodia.  Through their rural schools project, Passports With Purpose has raised enough money to build a school in rural Cambodia.

So you been to school for a year or two and you know you’ve seen it all.

After reaching the goal of $13, 000 in the first few days, the goal was doubled and improvements including water filtration and a school nurse can be added to the school with your help.

Passports with Purpose is an collaboration of travel bloggers who give back through this unique fundraiser.  This year they have wrangled over 50 prizes which are being raffled.  Every US$10 donated is also a chance to win a specific prize.  This year’s prizes are awesome, ranging from cameras to luggage to vacations in Costa Rica and St. Lucia.

Now you can go where people are one, now you can go where they get things done.

There are only a few more days to reach the new $26,000 goal and we are getting so close.  Enter to win Contribute to this great cause before December 21, 2009, 11:59PM PST to win some cool stuff to help AAfC and children in Cambodia.  Winners will be notified by email on January 5, 2010.

It’s a holiday in Cambodia, it’s tough, kid, but it’s life.
