Best Passports with a Purpose For Ireland Travelers

This year’s Passports with a Purpose fundraiser ends tomorrow, December 11, at 11:59 pm EST.  Have you made a donation yet?

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been meaning to, but the busyness of the season has you scrambling, at the last minute, to make your donation- and put those virtual prize tickets toward something you would really like to win.

If you look at the sidebar to the right, you can see that PWaP has raised 70% of their goal of the $100,000 needed to build 5 wells in Haiti.  I hope you’ll take a few minutes to make a donation to help them meet- or exceed- this year’s fundraising goal.
