What is Passports With Purpose? It’s a annual Travel Bloggers’ fundraiser. The goal this year is to raise $80,000 to build a library for children in Zambia. I only just found out about it, so I’m a bit late to the party. I was planning to donate $30 to them on my birthday, instead of giving it to Kiva. But wait, let’s make this a bit more interesting!

For every Alexa review YOU write from now until December 15 11:59PM(PST), I will donate an additional $1 to Passports With Purpose, rounded up to the nearest $10.


if 1-10 people write me a review, I’ll donate $10 (+ $30 for my birthday)
if 11-20 people write me a review, I’ll donate $20 (+ $30 for my birthday)


1. What do you care so much about Alexa reviews?
I’m not too sure. I think it has something to do with me being an attention whore.

2. How do I write an Alexa review?
Go to this page and login. Then write something awesome but brief, like the length of a tweet. Don’t worry, it doesn’t need to be an essay.

3. What is the maximum you will donate?
My limit is $100 ($70 + $30 for my birthday). Hey I work on a cruise ship okay, I’m not made of money!

4. Isn’t this almost like bribery?
Don’t be silly. It’s exactly like bribery. Think of as Bribery with Purpose. Think of the children.

5. I cannot believe you are using illiterate children as pawns in your master plan to gain more Alexa reviews.
I know huh! I feel a bit like Lex Luthor, except with less zeros in my bank account. Regardless of what you think, you are free to donate directly to Passports with Purpose.

6. I can’t afford to donate to Passports with Purpose.
Perfect, this is just for you! Write me an Alexa review and I’ll donate $1 on your behalf. Cost to you = 30 seconds. Cost to me = $1 (i.e. one less beer in crew bar). One small action from you, will help make the world a slightly better place for many. (Bonus: tweet/stumble/share this to your cheap friends, so they can get in on the karma action too!)

As of writing, Passports with Purpose has only raised 31% of its $80,000 goal. It has a long way to go with only about a week left. So do consider donating to them (it’s a raffle so you may even win a prize). And spread the word!
