In 2008, Debbie Dubrow, Michelle Duffy, Pam Mandel and Beth Whitman, the bloggers behind Delicious Baby, WanderMom, Nerd’s Eye View and Wanderlust and Lipstick, respectively, began a travel-inspired initiative to raise money online. Passports with Purpose also filled the need to do long-lasting good for people in the places travelers visit by uniting an online community and leveraging the social media platforms of more than 150 travel bloggers around the world. PwP initiatives benefited Heifer International; the Passports School with American Assistance for Cambodia and a village in Tamil Nadu, India for 25 Dalit families with Land for Tillers’ Freedom. In 2011, funds were raised to build two libraries in Zambia with Room to Read.

With your help, in 2012 we will raise $100,000 to build five wells in Haiti through our partnership with Water.org.
