Win a Weekend Stay At the Klaus K, Helsinki: Passports With Purpose 2012

by inspiringtravellers on November 28, 2012

*Please note that this prize was available for the 2012 Passports With Purpose Fundraiser, which is now over. For a chance to win an amazing prize in this year’s fundraiser, please visit Passports With Purpose.*

Have you been to Helsinki yet? If you haven’t, it should definitely be on your list. We enjoyed five fun nights in Finland’s beautiful capital in September and cannot wait to go back.

Today we’re happy to announce an exciting prize that will give you a delightful place to stay while exploring the city: a weekend break at Finland’s first design hotel, Klaus K. We’re doing this in partnership with Klaus K Hotel, who have generously donated the stay in support of Passports With Purpose.

In case you’ve never heard of it, Passports With Purpose is the awesome travel bloggers’ charity and every year the excellent team at PWP chooses a cause to support. Since 2008 they’ve achieved some wonderful things: raising money for Heifer International in their first year, funding a school in partnership with the American Assistance for Cambodia and building an entire village in India. Last year PWP raised enough money to build two libraries in Zambia together with Room to Read. Every year they raise (and exceed) their goal.

This year PWP is supporting Water.org, which is a charity committed to innovation that helps bring safe water supply and sanitation to communities. The goal is to raise $100,000 to build wells in Haiti. You probably know how vital water is, but you may not be aware of the reasons Water.org needs your help so badly.

Here at Inspiring Travellers we believe very strongly in giving back so we’ve made a commitment to support Passports With Purpose every year by hosting a prize. Last year we worked with Europe Net Hotels and the Town Hall Apartments to give away a five night stay in Budapest. And we’re just as excited about this year’s prize: a weekend stay for two at the luxurious Klaus K Hotel in Helsinki’s hip design district.

Great to see you guys involved in this! And a great prize, especially given it can be so expensive to visit the Scandanavian countries.

Yeah, Helsinki is definitely not cheap for accommodation!

This sounds like a worthy cause indeed. Living in Australia I now understand how terrible life is without water.
