This is my first Christmas away from my family so i thought why not embrace it and donate the material side of Christmas to something that matters. I'm asking eveyone i know to donate here ;-) I spent last Christmas in hospital so lets hope lots of people want to join me and help me have the best Christmas. Helping others. Its really the best gift.
I am one of the lucky ones. I particiapted in this challenge last year and it kept me sane and inspired me so much i still can't find the words to thank Sophia. Maybe i never will. Now its my turn to give back.
Who better to fight for than children wanting to learn.Who choose to learn. Who often dont have the chance. Everyone deserves that chance and to develop their own voice. The right to an education.
Sophia and Adam say it best, check it out below. I can't help but be insppired by them. I wish organisations like this didn't exisit but I live in the real world. A world that is grateful for people who fight for others.
Thanks for reading
This video still gives me goosebumps. Make sure you watch it ;-)

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!
