f-stop Gear, the makers of two of the bags I trust for my photography gear, is teaming up with The Carey Adventures to offer a perfect prize for the casual photographer in your life. Or maybe that photographer is you!!
Up for grabs in this year’s Passports With Purpose raffle (among other great prizes) is a Millar Series Smokey Mountain camera bag. This bag is not only stylish, it will transport your camera gear safely while keeping access to other goodies (snacks, books, etc…) separate in the upper section.
The Millar Series is vintage outdoors meets modern Tokyo. Classic outdoor looks combined with exceptional functionality let you step out of the backcountry and onto the street. In the fall, the ancient slopes of the Smoky Mountains explode with color, creating a brief moment in time when stunning images are found at every turn. f-stop’s eponymous rucksack will take what you need for a casual photo tour through the heart of it on Skyline Drive, and still have enough room for an extra layer, and the hike to that overlook off the beaten path.
How Do I Win This Bag?
f-stop has been kind enough to donate the Millar Series Smokey Mountain Bag (retail $125) as a prize for this year’s Passports With Purpose fundraiser. Passports With Purpose is a grassroots effort to raise funds for worthwhile projects to help every day people across the globe. Last year, the effort travel bloggers raised over $90,000 to build libraries in Africa.
This year’s charity of choice is Water.org and we are specifically raising funds to install a couple of wells to bring clean drinking water to a couple of communities who lack this basic life amenity. Your donation is tax-deductible because Passports With Purpose keeps 0% of the funds raised. All 100% of your donation/raffle entry goes to Water.org and their efforts in Haiti, an area badly in need of clean drinking water. For more information on why Passports With Purpose chose Water.org, click here.
For your chance to win the Smokey Mountain bag, you will need to click over to the Passports With Purpose donation page. There you will find a plethora of great prizes, including this very prize. Simply fill in the quantity of raffle tickets you would like and then check out from the page just like any other shopping cart experience. It is quite easy and sometimes addicting.
Odds of winning are based on total entries.
One brand new Smokey Mountain bag is up for grabs and it will be shipped directly to you, if you live in the USA. This prize is only available in the USA.
