I’m putting up a Casio Exilim EX-S5 digital camera (a value for $100) as my contribution to this year’s efforts. The Casio Exilim is the one I carry with me everywhere. It’s extremely small, durable, and has an impressive feature set for a camera its size. On top of that it’s only one of the prizes you can enter to win.

I hope that you’ll take a few moments and take a look at the prizes and consider making a donation. Thank you!

  1. Excellent prize – the prizes get better each year, next year there’s no doubt be a trip to Space up for grabs. That’s a neat little camera to keep with you when you want something small and easy to use.

    The prize I’m offering is a Flip Video Camera

      Thanks Heather, very reliable cameras, I love the Exilim. The Flip Video camera you’ve got also looks great and if you’re recommending it I’m sure it’s a great piece of video equipment.

      Participating and watching Passports with a Purpose be such a success has been wonderful.

    The Casio digital camera is a great prize for Passports With Purpose. Just think, you might win by a simple $10 donation but the kids in rural Cambodia are the real winners.

      It’s a really great effort all around by everyone involved (including you!) So glad I was able to be a part of Passports with a Purpose this year.
