As travelers, we are fortunate.
We have the time, financial means, health and freedom to leave our homes and travel. Not everyone is so fortunate. In fact, not everyone has the basic necessities of life. Traveling, one gets to see this.
To help balance the scales, just a wee bit, travel bloggers hold an annual online sweepstakes/fundraiser called Passports with Purpose. You can give your passport (the ultimate representation of your traveler status) more purpose by participating in this year's PwP event.
Last year, Passports with Purpose raised $90,000 to build two libraries in Zambia through a partnership with Room to Read. This year, working with Water.org, the goal is to raise $100,000 to fund wells in two communities in rural Haiti. These will provide much needed clean water; one of those basic necessities that we take for granted.
