You may remember Passports with a Purpose, the travel blogger’s fundraiser Jet With Kids participated in last year that raised over $7000 to fight against poverty through Heifer International. The $10 raffle ticket allowed readers to qualify for fabulous prizes donated by various organizations and promoted by travel bloggers worldwide!

Passports with a Purpose has dedicated the 2009 charity event to make a difference for the children of Cambodia. By raising only $13,000 and working through the organization American Assistance for Cambodia, (http://www.cambodiaschools.com/) a new school will be built for a village unable to otherwise afford it. To read a personal story about this experience, read http://kristof.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/12/29/we-start-a-school-in-cambodia/?scp=1&sq=cambodia%20school&st=cse
The two prizes we are featuring provide transportation for the youngest travelers (up to 40 lbs.) while offering back-saving (and trip-enhancing) assistance for traveling parents and grandparents.
ERGObaby has generously agreed to donate one fantastic HandsFree System, consisting of:
There are many different patterns and colors to choose from – the ERGObaby carrier fits everyone’s styles and needs. All the ERGObaby items can be used individually, or attached together for truly HandsFree babywearing!
My ERGObaby carrier completely amazed my husband and me when we were able to carry our 35 lb. son around London without back strain OR complaints from the little one!
Maclaren Quest Stroller
Maclaren USA has generously agreed to donate a Maclaren Quest Stroller:
My Maclaren Quest stroller has traveled all over the world with us and still is comfortably transporting my 50 lb., 5 year old son around.
