BENEFITING: PENCILS OF PROMISE INCORPORATED
ORGANIZER: PENCILS OF PROMISE INCORPORATED
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Dear friends and family,
As many of you know, I have spent the last two years working for Pencils of Promise, a nonprofit organization founded in 2008 to increase access to quality education for children in the developing world. Pencils of Promise brings life-changing educational programs and quality school infrastructure to Primary school children in Guatemala, Ghana, and Laos.
Having spent the last two years with Pencils of Promise, I know what kind of work goes into this organization. Over one year in Guatemala, I spent time supporting teams that work day in and day out to boost the level of learning in classrooms in the remotest areas of El Quiché and the Boca Costa. This past year in Ghana, I continued my journey with PoP, and can attest to the quality of work that our teams are producing to reach thousands of future leaders in the Volta Region
I strongly believe in the quality and the level of impact this organization has on the lives of over 30,000 students in over 300 schools worldwide. I have decided to run my first marathon ever to support the organization to reach more children with life-changing education.
In my commitment to the organization’s mission, I will run the New York Marathon this November. I have set a fundraising $5,000 which will go directly to providing quality education in rural communities PoP is partnering with.
Please, help me reach my goal! Every single contribution counts. Thanks for helping bring dignity and opportunity to the children who will shape our future.
See you at the finish line!!
