Well now might be your chance!

As part of the Passports with Purpose 2012 fundraising efforts, we have partnered with the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa to provide someone with an exquisite experience in Hawaii for just a $10 donation.

You could have all sorts of adventures from surfing, diving, golf, and spa treatments in this amazing resort.

In New Zealand we take for granted the effort of turning on a tap and filling our glasses with fresh drinking water. It is the same situation in the majority of places we have travelled to around the world over the last 3 years.

But in some areas, such as Haiti, the locals are not as lucky.

Nearly half of the people in Haiti don’t have a nearby source of clean water and four out of five don’t have a sanitary toilet. Every day they must walk to a nearby water tank (filled sporadically by water trucks) and fill up a five gallon container.

This is typically the only water they have for the whole day for all of their needs. And more often than not, it is contaminated.

You have the chance to make a difference. And a chance to win some amazing prizes, like our $1100 prize below, just by donating $10.

You could be staying here very soon…

How do I get involved?

Visit the Passports with Purpose 2012 Donation page and check out the prizes on offer. Each prize has a minimum value of $100, although many are worth much, much more.

Then click the big shiny DONATE and provide what you can. Every little bit helps, but remember, for every $10 you donate, you get to pick a prize draw to be entered into. As you may have guessed, the more tickets you buy for a prize, the more you increase your chances to actually win it. So if there’s something you really, really want you may want to donate for a couple of tickets.

    What a noble cause. Clean water is one of basic needs for us. Even here in the villages, people have to travel miles just to get a pan of drinking water.
