The 8th annual Passports with a Purpose travel blogger fundraiser launched earlier this week, offering a variety of prizes to the general public to raise money for the organization’s 2015 cause, Kenya with Worldreader, which brings digital readers with more than 50,000 books to children, teachers and parents in Kenya.

The fundraiser launched on Nov. 8 and runs through Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015. For every $5,000 raised, 600 Kenyan children receive e-books. One hundred percent of donations go directly to Worldreader, and for every donation made, donors can select from one of a variety of prizes to enter to win. More than 40 prizes are available in this year’s campaign, including travel getaways to Four Seasons Beverly Hills in California, Circle Ranch in Arizona, Great Wolf Lodges and KOA campsites nationwide, and a trip to Mexico’s Yucatan with tours to Chichen Itza.

Passports with a Purpose has raised nearly $300,000 for various causes in its first seven years. If you would like to donate and enter to win in this year’s fundraiser, visit Passports with a Purpose.
