This should have been posted on December 19th, or sometime really very shortly thereafter, and yet here it is, appearing on December 26th (I blame Colonial Williamsburg, but I’ll save that for another post). That’s the bad news. The good news is that when the Passports with Purpose travel bloggers fundraiser ended, you wonderful people had donated not just the $100,000 the organizers had been shooting for, but an astonishing $110,000. That means that there will soon be five communities … Read more

Dog Jaunt is the proud sponsor of a prize in this year’s Passports with Purpose travel bloggers fundraiser — a really wonderful pet carrier donated by Tumi to help dig two water wells in rural Haiti. It’s a well-designed and beautifully-constructed carrier (retail price $495) that will make the owner of any pet 12 lbs. or under very happy indeed, and if that’s you, you should give serious consideration to plunking down $10 for a chance to win it (or … Read more

That means that if you, like me, did not get a congratulatory e-mail message, you did not, in fact, win the prize or prizes you … Read more
The short version? The travel bloggers’ fundraiser that, last year, built a school in Cambodia with your donations plans, this year, to build a village in India for Dalit (untouchable) people. I contacted the Kimpton Hotel group, and they’re offering a prize you’ll love: Two nights, plus a $125 voucher for a meal, at any of their amazing dog-friendly hotels. For each $10 you donate, you get a chance to win the Kimpton prize (check out the other prizes too … Read more
From the beginning, I have thought of Dog Jaunt as a blog for people who love to travel — and who happen to have a small dog. So when I learned that a group of beloved travel bloggers was organizing a fundraiser, called Passports with Purpose, to raise money to build a school in Cambodia, Dog Jaunt jumped on board. Here’s the plan.
Together we’re going to raise $13,000, … Read more
