Mozilla Firefox is giving away $50,000 to the fundraiser that raises the most right now! Please, please, please donate and help me rally up support for Pencils of Promise and help build a new school in Guadalupana!
Check out the leaderboard here and help me get to first!
I attended an impact trip to Guadalupana and what struck me immediately was just how high need the community is. And that's where my Impossible came from. Could I raise the money to build a school? One three-room structure costs $30,000.
I volunteered to give my 30th birthday to PoP and we were able to build two new schools and make such an incredible impact for these children. I'm so in love with the work that PoP is doing that I want to help more.
Get involved however you can. Give up a $4 latte. Tell your parents you'll do all the laundry for a week. Throw a bake sale. A lemonade stand. A car wash. Spread the word in your community. Your voice is the most powerful tool in the world. So shout it from the rooftops team!
Whatever it takes. Let's win this challenge for Pencils of Promise!
