Passports With Purpose: Win Icebreaker Clothing

Today is the launch of Passports With Purpose, the fundraiser by travel bloggers to support projects in the developing world. Last year, PWP raised $110,000 to fund the construction of five wells in Haiti in partnership with Water.org.

The beneficiary of this year’s project is buildOn, a nonprofit organization that works to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education. The organization’s Global School Construction Program provides rural communities in developing nations with access to education. We’re working to raise $115,000 to construct three schools and fund three adult literacy programs in the Sikasso region of southern Mali, Africa.

Win Icebreaker Clothing

Icebreaker CoronetFor Passports With Purpose, Icebreaker has kindly offered two prizes: the Coronet Long Sleeve Half Zip for women and the Escape Long Sleeve Crewe Stripe for men.

The luxurious women’s sweater comes from Icebreaker’s premium black Sheep collection, crafted from the finest gauge of merino yarn. It’s made from heavyweight 320-gram pure merino. It’s valued at $189.99. My Coronet sweater has accompanied me on plenty of trips, as well as at home. The men’s striped sweater is made from warm 260-gram merino wool and is valued at $119.99. Once mailed to each winner, the sweaters cannot be exchanged or returned.

If there’s any brand that shows up most frequently in my suitcase, it’s Icebreaker. The flexibility of merino weight, as well as clothing style, allows for a variety of uses—from city styling to outdoor adventures.

How You Can Donate and Win

Icebreaker EscapeBeginning today, (Nov. 25, 2013 at 11:59 p.m.) the Passports With Purpose website will show a list of all the prizes available, and each one will link back to a full description of the prizes on the blogger’s website. For each $10 in donations that you make to buildOn, you’ll be entered to win a prize (or prizes) of your choice.

The fundraiser closes on Dec. 9 and all proceeds go directly to buildOn. You can donate $10 for the prize of your choice, multiples of $10 for one favorite prize if you want to increase your chances, or $10 or more for several different prizes. You can also make a donation as a gift on behalf of someone else.
