Passports with Purpose is back for another year, this time with the goal of raising $13,000 to build a school in rural Cambodia, through American Assistance for Cambodia.

Passports with Purpose, for those of you who haven’t heard of it, is an annual fundraiser organized by four travel bloggers: Debbie Dubrow of DeliciousBaby, Pam Mandel of Nerd’s Eye View, Michelle Duffy of WanderMom and Beth Whitman of Wanderlust and Lipstick. It works as a raffle, with travel bloggers sponsoring a prize which donors can nominate as their preferred prize.

Last year, the Passports with Purpose fundraiser raised $7,420 for Heifer International. With this year’s goal set at $13,000, the stakes have been raised.

Our Prize: $250 Accommodation Voucher

Last year, TravelBlogs missed the boat on sponsoring a prize for the fundraiser, but we’re doing our bit this year. We’re contributing a $250 accommodation voucher for use on Travellerspoint’s budget accommodation area.

Here’s what you need to know:

    Great cause, I encourage everyone to take part. Cambodia is an awesome country and deserves all the help it can get.

    I read about this in another blog and I say this is a wonderful thing for travel bloggers to do — work together for a good cause. I checked on this and the goal was met. Awesome!

    • A Girl and Her Thumb

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

    • Home and Away

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

    • Kiwi Blog Bus

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
