Donate, Win, Eat, Travel: Passports with a Purpose

Want to win a trip to explore the ingredients of rustic Tuscan cooking?

I’m back from Mexico with fresh cooking tips from an Abuela (grandma), a passion for pambazos (think tortas, but soaked in chile, then fried) and a few imbibe-able souvenirs. Before I start in on my posts about those, I wanted to give you the opportunity to win a little travel adventure of your own.

As self-indulgent as this lovely blog is, I couldn’t help but jump at the opportunity to help out by participating in Passports with a Purpose, to help raise money to build libraries in Zambia. “Zambia? Books? That doesn’t sound like food?” You might be saying.

And you’d be right, but only because I hadn’t gotten to the part where you win a $500 gift certificate to Willing Foot, a travel tour provider–with a a whole slate of culinary travel offerings.

Fabulous food from my time in Beijing

For every $10 that you donate to Passports with a Purpose, you enter to win a prize of your choosing. If, say, you’d like to explore Mendoza, Argentina’s wine country, or get cooking classes in Beijing, then you’ll want to put your $10 towards my prize, the $500 gift certificate donated by Willing Foot.

I do very dearly, hope that you win this amazing prize. And that you choose to take your favorite food blogger with you. But even if not, your ten dollar donations will still be working hard to help Room to Read reach their goal of teaching every child to read–and on a smaller scale, to help a scrappy group of travel bloggers known as Passports with a Purpose raise $80,000 to build two new libraries in Zambia.

So, darling readers, I leave you with the directive in the title of this post: Donate, Win, Eat, Travel. And don’t forget to tell me all about it.
