SEATTLE, Washington Beth Whitman, the Wanderlust and Lipstick diva, helped launch Passports with Purpose (PwP), a travel-themed raffle to support Heifer International this year. Our buddy Dave Fox supplied signed copies of his books Globejotting and Getting Lost as prizes, along with a writing consultation. I, uh, provided moral support from the sidelines, along with some 11th-hour publicity here... (lame, lame: I know).
Other fab goodies include merino long underwear, Eagle Creek duffels, NYC cooking classes, three nights at the Wyland Waikiki in Hawaii and $150 gift card to B&H Photo. Until December 29th, you can buy a $10 raffle ticket for each alluring prize. A week before Christmas, PwP is just $700 below its fundraising target. So get with the donations, kids.
