Eat Chocolate And Support Passports With Purpose 2010



Yours truly, outside the Fenoglio chocolate shop in Bariloche, Argentina.

Passports with Purpose 2010 started earlier this week and my friend Lauren, who owns Chocolopolis, a specialty chocolate shop in Seattle, has kindly donated a chocolate-tasting event as a prize. There’s more to chocolate than a plain bar of Hershey’s or Cadbury’s would lead you to believe and with a $10 donation (on the Passports with Purpose Donate page), you can be in the running to host this fun event for yourself and a few good friends.

This year, Passports with Purpose is fund-raising for LAFTI, an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of the Dalit (untouchable) population in India. With $50,000 we will be able to build a village and provide some of these people with homes. You can learn more about LAFTI and their incredible mission in this short video.

Head on over to DeloiciousBaby for more travel-themed Friday photo fun.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!
