Passports with Purpose: Sustainable Farming; Travel Prizes Galore

Passports with Purpose

Trekaroo is proud to partner annually with Passports with Purpose, a community of travel writers working to give back to the places that have touched all of our hearts. This year, Passports for Purpose has chosen Sustainable Harvest International to be the donation recipient. Please take a minute to read all about our participation with the program, and donate to the cause while getting a chance to win a 2-night stay (plus two 60-minute spa treatments) at the luxurious Fairmont Princess Scottsdale.


If Arizona doesn’t fit what you are looking for, or you are wanting to donate more to this amazing cause, these are some of our favorite prizes from our fellow travel writers.

Gift Certificates

The giver knows that a quality gift has been given, and the receiver appreciates the flexibility a gift certificate provides.

Ireland Family Vacations has the perfect gift for the person who is hard to buy for, a $200 Amazon Gift Card.
