Through Mara, a traveling Mom and fellow blogger, I found out about Passport with Purpose, "A travelblogger-driven fundraiser for Heifer International". Using this blog platform to make a positive difference (small though it may be) in other people's lives is a wonderful concept, and those choosing to donate will be entered into a drawing for one of dozens of prizes (most of which exceed the $100 mark). My particular contribution is William Gray's book Travel with Kids: The Definitive Guide to Family Holidays Worldwide, and a "Magnetic Travel Art Kit" for your tiniest travel companions.
There's nothing like travel to open up your eyes, and soul, to those less fortunate, and I for one am constantly looking for a way to make the world a better place. Won't you join me? Click here for details on how you can help.
