There’s no other way I’d rather celebrate my 26th birthday than to have my friends, family and the online tribe of bloggin’ babes help build a school with Pencil Of Promise.
I believe every child deserves a quality education, and the opportunity to paint the world with their own colours.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Education reduces poverty, empowers women and helps prevent disease. If all students in low-income countries left school with basic reading skills, 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty – a 12% cut in world poverty.” – Pencil Of Promise
Currently 250 million children lack basic read, writing and maths schools. Let’s change this.
My birthday mission is to raise the US$25,000 needed to build a school in Guatemala with Pencil Of Promise by my 27th birthday next year.
Today, right here, we have an extraordinary opportunity to make a real and lasting difference in the lives of children around the world.
You and I already know the power of education. We’ve spent years improving our own careers, business, finances, personal development, creative craft & health. Let’s make it possible for every child to be able to experience the feeling of the first day of school.
Pencil Of Promise work with communities across the globe to build schools and create programs that provide education opportunities for children. 100% of all donations go to building schools for children. They have built 312 schools throughout Guatemala, Ghana and Laos since 2009.
I’m honoured to be apart of a global movement of passionate individuals committed to supporting a world with great educational opportunity for all children.
If a 1000 beautiful souls who believe all children deserve a quality education donate US$25 each, we will raise the $25,000 to build a school in Guatemala with Pencil Of Promise.
However, even just a $1 donation will help bring me closer to my fundraising goal.
“For any movement to gain momentum, it must start with a small action.” – Adam Braun Founder of Pencil Of Promise
