I am thrilled to be participating in Passports with Purpose this year! If you’re not familiar with Passports with Purpose, it’s an annual travel bloggers’ fundraiser that unites the online community to help people in the places we travel.
The 2014 beneficiary is Sustainable Harvest International (SHI). SHI’s mission is to provide farming families in Central America with the training and tools to preserve our planet’s tropical forests while overcoming poverty.
The cool part of the project is that for each $5000 raised during the fundraiser, SHI will help a family in Honduras learn to farm sustainably and feed their family. Training will last for five years with lasting benefits for the entire community. I personally love that the project lasts five years. The extended time frame can help to truly make a lifelong difference in the community.
How it works:
Donate $10 on the catalog of prizes; each chance is $10 and all proceeds go to Sustainable Harvest International. That’s it! Donate to support a great cause and be entered to win a wide range of fantastic prizes!
The Talking Suitcase Prize:
This year Tom Bihn Company was gracious enough to donate the fabulous Synapse 25 – a $195 value! I can’t say enough about the Synapse 25. It’s the perfect travel backpack. Durable, roomy, carefully designed backpack that can handle the most rugged travel adventures.
One of the nice features is that the front pocket is deep enough for a 1-liter water bottle. I need to carry a lot of water when traveling as a family of four. My kids get cranky when they are hungry or thirsty!
The backpack has a TON of storage room and also includes a water-repellent zipper if we get caught in the rain while hiking or traveling. You can fit a laptop, clothes, (or an jacket when out and about), toiletries, camera and so much more. There is even an inner-pocket perfect for a phone. I can’t travel without a phone!
