What a fantastic result was achieved by the Passports with Purpose Raffle in raising $7420 for Heifer International. It was supported by over 60 travel bloggers who put forward prizes, countless sponsors who donated them and of course all of you out there who bought tickets.
My two prizes of a Christmas hampers of Travel Inspiration; stationary, books and DVDs to kick off your travel dreaming in 2009 were won by Marilyn Burgess from Bristol, UK and Jen Lacenda who blogs at Folie a Deux. About 20 more of you also won a bonus prize of the fabulous Paperblanks Year Planners.
I was also lucky enough to win the raffle prize of some Lonely Planet books and guides from Caitlin at Roaming Tales. I’m planning to make use of the Syria and Lebanon guide to plan the trip to Lebanon I’m so hoping will happen in the early summer.
I’d like to thanks my generous sponsors; Lonely Planet, Time Out, Alastair Sawdays, Paperblanks, Pocketcomms , Michael Palin and Indus Films, who donated the raffle prizes as well as all of you who supported the raffle. We must also give a pat on the back to the girls over in Seattle who came up with the idea and brought it to fruition in such a short time scale – well done to Pam of Nerd’s Eye View, Beth of Wanderlust and Lipstick, Michelle of Wandermom and Debbie of Delicious Baby. The Passports with Purpose raffle is planned to take place again next year, so look out then for some more great prizes to win.
