Can you imagine a world without books or libraries? Books stir up our imagination and open our eyes to the bigger world around us — much like travel does. That’s why we love this year’s Passports with Purpose fundraiser.
For the fourth year in a row, travel bloggers around the world will unite to raise funds for a charity. After last year’s success, $64,000 raised to help build housing in India, Passports with Purpose is aiming to raise $80,000 to build two libraries in Zambia.
This year we are working with Room to Read, a non-profit organization that works with local communities and governments in developing countries to promote literacy skills and support girls’ secondary education.
The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess has graciously donated a 2-night stay at their resort. This AAA Five Diamond property is a family’s dream. One walk around and you know that you are at a special place. The grounds are stunning and there is plenty of open space for kids to run around.
The extensive list of kid-friendly activities is the star attraction for families. Bobcat Billy’s Clubhouse, for kids ages 4-12, multiple pools and waterslides and even fishing on-property for your little anglers, are just a few of onsite activities. Read our family-friendly review of the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess on Ciao Bambino for the full scoop.
Two nights in a Fairmont Room. Room and taxes included.
Two full-day admissions to Bobcat Billy’s Clubhouse (ages 4-12) including lunch.
Valid through November 30, 2012. Based on space availability.
