Passports with Purpose is raising funds to build a well in Haiti this year with Water.org, and I wanted to help. Only a few years old, PwP has raised money to build a school in Cambodia, an entire village in India, and two libraries in Zambia. This year, I’m donating a seven-day Italy coaching session, for which I normally charge $300. Anyone can enter to win it, along with many more fantastic prizes, between now and December 11th.
Make a donation (or not, by sending your entry through regular mail), and have your name entered in the drawing to win. Who knows, maybe you’ll make a $10 donation and win 7 days of Italy trip coaching, which would normally cost you $300.
Description of the prize I am donating:
Work directly with professional Italy travel planner Madeline Jhawar for 7 days to plan your Italy dream vacation. After understanding your interests, she’ll give advice on where to go in Italy, how long to stay in each place, and how to get around, whether by chauffeured limo or public bus. She’ll recommend accommodation that you’ll love, within your budget; she’ll suggest fantastic tours, guides, and classes; you’ll get great recommendations for restaurants, food festivals, and special events. If you need it, you’ll also receive advice about language, cell phones, money, guide books, travel insurance, packing, clothing, and anything else you can think of.
For more information see the description of services, read our FAQ, or look at testimonials from happy clients. Madeline Jhawar has worked as a professional Italy travel planner for 4 years, and previously guided hiking and biking tours in Italy. She spent 5 years living in Italy and now lives in California, USA.
Please give at least 4 weeks notice before you’d like to begin the coaching session. All communication during the 7 days of coaching is by email. The 7 days can be consecutive or they can be divided into two chunks with some time in between, but all 7 days must be completed within a two week period. Prize must be used within 12 months.
So head on over, enter your name to win some truly amazing prizes – you’ve got until December 11th and then this thing is done. Let’s help PwP and Water.org build a well in Haiti!
