Holiday Shopping for $10

6 Comments 08 December 2011


Where will you spend your money this season?

Have you checked out Passports with Purpose Travel Blogger fundraising yet? Why the hell not? Let’s look at this logically…

$10 for shopping this holiday season can get you:

  • A parking space to shop in Soho, NYC for an hour.
  • 2.7 gallons of gas to drive from mall to mall trying to find the new Kindle or Ipad.
  • 2 slices of pizza and a coke at the shopping mall food court.
  • A 10 minute neck massage at the local mani/pedi shop after carrying all of those bags.
  • Sending approximately 4 Holiday Cards via snail mail.
  • 2.4 hot apple ciders to quench your shopping thirst.

On the other hand…

$10 for Passports With Purpose this holiday season can get you:

What are you waiting for – stretch your $10 this holiday, plan your 2012 travels and help build a library in Zambia!

    Passports with Purpose is offering outstanding prizes this year. I’m making my list and checking it twice. Now off to donate to PwP. Thanks for including our prize of a 2-night romantic stay at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North.

  2. Fantastic juxtaposition of the two! :)

    In addition to trying to win a prize for personal use, I think donating in someone’s name can be a great gift as well. We don’t need “stuff” (nor can we carry anything more, lol), but I’d be tickled if family members donated to this in lieu of giving us Christmas gifts! Sending the link now…. :)

    Very good way to look at it! I’ve already made one round of donations to PwP, but I’ll be making another round next week!

  4. 5 nights in Hawaii is better than one hour parking in NYC. Plus, PwP is a great charity.

  5. Possibly the best $10 ever spent!
