Of course, the real winners in this event are the many students in the Sikasso region of southern Mali, Africa who will be able to attend the two new schools and two new literary programs built by the Mali-based organization. This year’s fundraiser raised over 84,000 dollars for buildOn.org thanks to all of the wonderful donors who participated this year. And let’s not forget about the wonderful blogging community, who comes together every year to support the annual Passports with Purpose fundraiser!

And a big THANK YOU goes to Pan Pacific Hotels for partnering with My Itchy Travel Feet to provide a prize for Passports With Purpose this year!

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.

Her travel articles and photos have been published in various publications as well as her own blog, Pass the Ham. And of course, she's currently enjoying her new post as assistant editor at My Itchy Travel Feet.
