Musical Gifts from Passports With Purpose

To go along with Kerry Dexter’s music for A Fine Winter’s Night, you might want to look at the Music Travel gifts available for the small $10 “bid” at Passports With Purpose.  Contribute to and you could win:


Triple Door, Seattle
Triple Door, Seattle, from Travels with Jessie website, courtesy of Triple Door

An evening at the Triple Door, finest musical entertainment venue in Seattle. Sponsored by Jessica Spiegel. (Value $150)

Kamoa Concert Ukelele. Become a musician yourself, like the donor–writer cum musician, and one of the founders of Passports With Purpose, Pam Mandel. (Value $279)

2013 Kahumoku Ohana Music and Lifestyle Workshop . Wow! You can get your ukelele and polish your style both, with prizes from Passports With Purpose, thanks to Brad Bordessa. Forget the drinks with the little umbrellas–this is experiencing Authentic Hawaii. (You have to get there and find a place to stay, but the meals and workshop are valued at $1450. See Brad’s site for details)

Three Sets of Ukulele Rock and Roll, Live . Am I sensing the takeover of the ukelele here? This live show comes to you from The Castaways, the Seattle band Pam Mandel plays with. What a party that would be! (Value $500. Available in Seattle area unless you want to pay expenses.)

I picked four prizes to highlight because they are very specifically about music, but trust me, there will be music involved with that Trip for 1 on Women’s Tour of Ireland in Fall 2013 or the Taste Harlem Soul Food Tour Tickets and heaven knows what kind of music you’ll find at all those wonderful resort and hotel stays and tours…go take a look.

Forget how it works?
