THE STORY:

Dear Friend,

Thank you for taking the time to visit this page. I've decided to step up my running game from the recent 3 - 5 mile New York Road Runners races of 2016 into the New York City Half Marathon to start off 2017 on behalf of Pencils of Promise, an organization that believes that every child should have access to quality education.

In short, Adam Braun founded Pencils of Promise in 2008; the inspiration stemmed from an encounter Braun had with a young boy who was begging on the streets of India. When Braun asked the boy what he wanted most in the world, he simply answered, “A pencil.”

Since then, Pencils of Promise has built 380 schools and served over 35K students. I am asking you today, to join me in making these numbers grow.

$10 provides WASH programming for one student for a year

$25 educates a child for a year

$250 provides a student with a secondary school scholarship

$500 provides a teacher with workshop and in-classroom training

$10,000 builds a primary classroom

$35,000 builds and sponsors a primary school in Ghana, Guatemala or Laos

For those who feel compelled to donate, please know how much I appreciate your efforts. Together we can make many children’s dreams come true.

Thank you for reading,

Dustin DeWitt
