Join us (Virtually) in Zambia

Posted on | April 17, 2012 | 1 Comment

In a few short weeks, three of the four Passports with Purpose founders (Beth Whitman, Michelle Duffy, and Deborah Dubrow will depart for Zambia to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony at one of the two libraries you helped build.  We’re excited and, as you might imagine, emotional about this opportunity.  We are also very grateful to Expedia who is making the trip possible by paying for our airfare and lodging

While we can’t bring you all along in person, we hope to bring you along virtually. This is Africa, after all, so we’re doing it the “old school” way, with postcards and pictures.  We hope to gather hundreds of them to bind in a photo album and deliver to the school. It’s a great way to show the kids in Zambia how many people, from around the world, worked together to make their library a reality!  So, if you helped by making a cash donation, providing a prize, or spreading the word on your blog or social media we hope you’ll participate.

  • Send us your postcard (or postcard sized pictures). It can be a postcard from your hometown, a trip that meant a lot to you, or a picture of you doing something you love. Don’t forget to write a note on the back!
  • We’ll be posting some of our favorites online, so let us know if it’s not ok to share in that way – we promise to respect your wishes.
  • Put your picture or postcard in the mail by May 1 – you can send it to: Passports with Purpose, P.O. Box 16102, Seattle WA 98116. Make sure you allow enough time for it to get to us before May 3rd.
You can follow along with our adventures right here on the Passports with Purpose blog, on our Facebook Page and on Twitter
