BENEFITING: PENCILS OF PROMISE INCORPORATED
ORGANIZER: PENCILS OF PROMISE INCORPORATED
Two years ago for my 40th birthday with the amazing support of family and friends, we raised $25,000 to build a school in Ghana with Pencils of Promise. That experience was one of the most humbling yet inspiring experiences of my life and one that I won't ever forget. Now after seeing the impact from my last goal, I've decided once again to raise money to go towards building another school with PoP but this time by doing something else I love (running the NYC Marathon).
Please join me once again by by donating just like so many of you did two years ago. Thank you for your generous support!
