Passports With Purpose (PWP) is hosting their 4th annual fundraising blogging event to support building two libraries in Zambia. My dedicated sponsor is the W Atlanta Downtown and they have really stepped up support for this cause by donating 2 weekend nights at the W Atlanta Downtown Hotel.
With your help, our goal is to raise $80,000 to build two libraries in southern and eastern Zambia through Room to Read’s Reading Room program. In this post I’ll lay out details how you can support the great cause and win one of many travel prizes. Our focus here at Points, Miles & Martinis is on the best travel deals, but supporting this cause is a deal in and of itself.
