Travel bloggers band together with Passports with Purpose and Room to Read to make a big difference in Zambia (and win some sweet prizes!).

GIVING TO A WORTHY CAUSE feels great, especially when it puts you in the running for a huge list of awesome prizes! Passports with Purpose has a 4-year history of fundraising success, and this year they have set their sights high — to raise $80,000 in two weeks. This pile of cash will build two libraries for the children of Zambia with the aid of Room to Read.

*Share PwP links to your Facebook.
*Use the #PwP tag and give plenty of Twitter love.
*Use a PwP icon as your profile picture during fundraising.
*Post a PwP widget on your blog.

Does it get any worthier than that?

Passports with Purpose 2011 fundraising kicked off yesterday and has already raised $10,000, a damn good start! For the last 2 years running PwP has well exceeded their fundraising goals, and with your support they will do it again.

* Individual bloggers procure a prize that will be given away to one lucky donor.
* The Passports with Purpose website hosts a list of all the available prizes.
* Donors make a tax deductible donation. For each $10 they donate, they can be entered to win a prize of their choice. The donation period runs through Dec. 16th.
* After the fundraiser ends, a winner is randomly selected for each prize.

Now is the time to jump on the PwP website and start making donations towards your favorite prize. This year’s prize list is a tempting trove of loot including rail passes, hotel accommodation, tours, gift cards, clothing, and electronics.

Run, don’t walk, and donate to PwP right this second.
