THE STORY:

I'm excited to announce I'll be running the TCS New York City Marathon on November 5th, along with Team TCS. All runners are encouraged to raise money to support an organization we feel strongly about, this year I will be running for the Pencils of Promise organization, and I would really like YOU to be part of it.

Pencils of Promise (“PoP”) is a for-purpose organization founded in 2008 with the goal of increasing access to quality education for children in the developing world. It all started with a simple question to a boy in India, “What would you want the most in the world?” and the boy answered “a Pencil”. PoP now works with communities in Ghana, Guatemala, Laos and Nicaragua to build schools and create programs that provide educational opportunities for children.

To date, PoP has built 400 schools and provided access to education to more than 33,000 students across the globe, establishing itself as a leader amongst the innovative global nonprofits working toward sustainable social change.

For every $100 raised, PoP can provide a year of education for 4 students. With everyone’s support, we can fund educational programs for an entire classroom and even a school!

Greatly appreciate your support in helping TCS use the TCS New York City Marathon, as a platform to raise awareness around educational programming for children around the globe. Together, we can make a huge impact in children's lives!

Regards,
Carmen
