BENEFITING: PENCILS OF PROMISE INCORPORATED
Pencils of Promise is a non-profit organization founded by Adam Braun, a big idea sparked by a chance encounter with a street kid in India. Braun met the boy when he was backpacking around the world and his poignant answer to a question Braun asked him—what do you want most in the world?—has led to a global initiative to build schools in impoverished communities. What the boy wanted most was a pencil, an answer that prompted Braun to reflect on the importance of education in a child’s life. Help a child get an education. I believe a pencil can change the world.
