Help Build a School in Cambodia

We are participating in the Passports with Purpose fundraiser again and the cause is a good one — proceeds will help build a school in Cambodia by supporting American Assistance for Cambodia (AAfC), an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving opportunities for the rural poor.

Travel bloggers around the world are hosting giveaways in support of this fundraising effort. For each $10 donation that you make to AAfC, you will will be entered in the giveaway(s) of your choice. The fundraiser closes on December 21 and all proceeds go directly to AAfC,501 (c)(3) charity.

Our Prize

I set out to put together a prize that would be exciting for the Ciao Bambino community and I found one! Los Suenos Marina and Resort in Costa Rica has generously donated a 5-night stay in a 2-bedroom condominium. Located in a gorgeous part of the country, what sets this property apart for families is the extensive onsite amenities including a kids club and a concierge desk; rooms are luxury condos with kitchens and plenty of space to live comfortably for a week or more.


5 nights in a 2 bedroom condominium – Colina, Del Mar or Veranda

Valid for 1 year (starting November 15th 2009)

Condominium subject to availability (excludes Peak Season)

1 Adventure Tour for 4 people

Total value: $2746
