Passports with Purpose

Congratulations to Pamela Rhodes of San Francisco, California. She won the Therafit shoe prize in the 2012 Passports With Purpose fundraiser. Pamela, enjoy wearing your Therafit shoes and please report back about your experience wearing them.

Thanks to all who donated money to win the Therafit shoe prize  or the other wonderful raffle prizes. Because of you, the travel bloggers at Passports With Purpose raised enough money to build five wells in Haiti through the auspices of water.org. All total, Passports With Purpose raised $110,000. They’re still accepting donations (no more prizes though); so if you were traveling like us and didn’t have a chance to contribute during the actual fundraiser, do what we did—contribute now.

A big THANK YOU goes to Therafit shoes for partnering with My Itchy Travel Feet to provide a prize for Passports With Purpose. You rock!

And, since I’m passing out thanks, Passports with Purpose wouldn’t be possible without support from sponsors that include: Expedia, Tripit, TBEXTravellerspointHomeAway, Go With Oh and Hostelbookers or the hard work of four Seattle travel bloggers: Debbie DubrowPam MandelBeth Whitman and Michelle Duffy.

Travel providers, please contact me if you would like to team up with My Itchy Travel Feet to sponsor a prize in next year’s Passports With Purpose fund drive.
