*Please note that this prize was available for the 2013 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.*
It’s so exciting to see Passports With Purpose (PwP) in its sixth year, doing good around the world and increasing (and meeting) the fundraising goal year after year. PwP is the annual travel bloggers’ fundraiser, which chooses a new beneficiary each year. Money is raised by donor bids on wonderful travel prizes, which are contributed by us bloggers and the wonderful companies who donate them.
This year we are raising money for buildOn, the goal being $115,000 to create three primary schools in the Sikasso Region of Mali, Africa, along with three adult literacy programs. buildOn has completed almost 200 schools in this region, providing education for more than 24,000 children each year. The organization has been constructing schools in some of the world’s poorest countries for more than two decades. This is our third year participating in PwP and, as usual, we’re really excited about the work we’re supporting.
You can bid on any of the dozens of selections in the catalog, but we’re thrilled with our prize this year as it takes the winner to another fantastic city: Tallinn, Estonia. The gorgeous, five star Hotel Telegraaf has kindly donated a two night bed and breakfast stay including the use of their Elemis SPA facilities. We had an enchanting dinner at the incredible Restaurant Tchaikovsky, which is located on the property, that we are still talking about when we were in Tallinn last year. While we did not stay at the hotel, it is one of the best hotels in Tallinn, a winner of the Trip Advisor Travelers' Choice® Award 2013 and a member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Featuring 86 beautifully appointed rooms and an enviable location right in the heart of Old Town, this will be the perfect place to stay during your time in the city.
Tallinn itself demands a visit, inspiring us with its modern outlook fused with old world charm. It is one of the most beautiful small cities in Europe with a fascinating history and many, many attractions for its size. To learn more about it, please check out the posts from our 2012 visit:
