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.
