BENEFITING: PENCILS OF PROMISE INCORPORATED
ORGANIZER: PENCILS OF PROMISE INCORPORATED
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Friends, Family, and Supporters -
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! As you may know, I've set a goal to run the New York City Marathon in November of this year. Pencils of Promise is sponsoring my race in return for my help in fundraising for their cause. I'm very grateful to be raising money for such a wonderful organization. Pencils of Promise provides free education to children in developing parts of the world. It's so easy to take for granted the opportunity just to be able to learn something new every day - a luxury that not everybody has.
Please consider donating to this great organization (and to my crazy 26.2 mile race)! Even only $1 for every mile, or $26.20, is all it takes! 100% of these tax-deductible donations goes towards education children.
Thank you all so much for your support!

Pencils of Promise (“PoP”) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2008 to increase access to quality education for children in the developing world. PoP works with communities across the globe to build schools and create programs that provide education opportunities for children, no matter where they were born or what resources they have available. PoP has built more than 300 schools throughout Laos, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Ghana, providing education opportunities to over 31,000 students and establishing itself as a leader amongst the innovative global nonprofits working toward sustainable social change. PoP was founded by Adam Braun who recently released his New York Times best-selling book, The Promise of a Pencil, the story of how Adam turned $25 into more than 300 schools around the world and the guiding steps anyone can take to lead a successful and significant life.
