Ready, Set, Go! Passports with Purpose 2013

Posted on | September 27, 2013 | 1 Comment

Are you ready to get started on the latest edition of Passports with Purpose? Over the last five years we have met ever more audacious goals and the current challenge is no exception.

BuildOn - MaliIn 2013, with your help, we will raise $115,000 for buildOn to construct three schools and fund three adult literacy programs in the Sikasso region of southern Mali, Africa.

Here are the dates for Passports with Purpose 2013:

  • November 6 : Deadline for submitting prize — be ready to share formal agreement with prize sponsor via Procurement Form.
  • November 23: Blog post should be ready to publish — submit link to the PwP catalog form via Host a Prize Form.
  • November 25, 11:59PM (EST) Blogger posts go live! PwP opens for donations!
  • December 9, 11:59PM (EST) : Donations for prizes close. Note: We’ll still take donations, but no more drawing entries
  • December 16: We’ll notify prize winners and host bloggers.

Here’s your checklist — all the basics are right here: 

  • Get your prize. Our guidelines explain what kind of prizes work well and why. Take note: As we grow, we’ve seen some terrific high value stuff come in. For legal reasons, your prize must be under $5000 in total value.
  • Have your sponsor fill out the procurement form by November 6th. This helps us track prizes and where they’re coming from. You’ll ask your sponsor to fill this out, and yes, it’s required. But it’s also very easy.
  • Write your blog post and set it to publish on November 25th, 11:59pm EST. Check tips for better PwP blog posts.
  • Tell us about your blog post on the Host a Prize Form.
  • Still stumped? We’re here to help. Get in touch.

The enthusiasm of the Passports with Purpose community is astounding. While the majority of funds raised come from individual donors, sponsors help us get a jump start with generous donations to buildOn.

Please take a moment to check them out here, you’ll notice some familiar names like Expedia (platinum); TBEX (silver sponsor); HomeAway, HostelBookers and Go With Oh (bronze). There are also two new sponsors we’d like to welcome to our community: DK Eyewitness Travel—DK Eyewitness Guides and Rough Guides (gold) and Eating London (copper)!

We can’t wait to see what we will accomplish this year!
