Passports with Purpose - Win GREAT Prizes

We're partway through our Passports with Purpose fundraiser, and I wanted to give you a heads up about some of the awesome prizes available.But first, a very brief intro about Passports with Purpose. 

This is an fundraiser done by bloggers who are ALL volunteers. Each year, the organizers pick one charity to raise funds for - and a specific project within it. This year, we're supporting Sustainable Harvest International, and for each $5,000 raised, we'll be helping one family farmer to get the tools, resources and know-how to farm more sustainably. This benefits the entire community, not just one family. At last tally, they'd already raised enough to help three families ($15,000).  

This money is raised in $10 increments, when people like you donate. With every $10 donation (100% goes to Sustainable Harvest International), you get one raffle entry into the prize of your choice. There are a ton of prizes, ranging from hotel stays in Scottsdale (like the Four Seasons or the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess) and a dude ranch stay for 4 at Tucson's Tanque Verde (thanks for hosting Ciao Bambino!). Or five nights lodging and lift tickets at Killington (thanks for hosting, Wandering Working Mom!)

I'll highlight some of the other great prizes here:
