I'm inspired about your love for children and how you want to help them through education. Save the Children organization is similar to you in that they are on a mission to help kids that are less unfortunate through education too.

I wanted to let you know about the More than Footprints campaign Trip Advisor is running to give away $1 million to five great causes, including Save the Children. Trip Advisor developed the campaign to give to organizations that are doing amazing work to help our planet and people around the world. The five causes were chosen by Trip Advisor members, and they are all fantastic! Money is rewarded to the 5 charities through votes.

I am particularly enthusiastic about Save the Children because I love kids believe in their mission in working together to help needy children in the United States and around the world through healthcare and education.

Will you write about this amazing campaign, and encourage people to vote for Save the Children! Please post the link to vote: :

I will be blogging about the campaign through a Trip Advisor site ( and I would be happy to post about your blog as well. Please let me know if you would like more information and I'll keep you updated on the voting progress!

Thanks so much,
