BENEFITING: PENCILS OF PROMISE INCORPORATED
ORGANIZER: PENCILS OF PROMISE INCORPORATED
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
Hi there, I'm Linlin and I work in the Development team at Pencils of Promise (PoP), a non-profit organization that supports underserved communities in Ghana, Guatemala, and Laos by building classrooms and education programs.
We believe every child should have access to quality education.
On March 20th, I'll be running my first half marathon, NYC half marathon 2016, to support PoP's work and children that need education.
Here, I need your generosity to have me running for these children!
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.
A nonprofit organization founded in 2008 to increase access to quality education for children in the developing world. PoP works with communities across the globe to build schools and create programs that provide education opportunities for children, no matter where they were born or what resources they have available. PoP has built more than 300 schools throughout Laos, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Ghana, providing education opportunities to over 31,000 students and establishing itself as a leader amongst the innovative global nonprofits working toward sustainable social change.
PoP was founded by Adam Braun who recently released his New York Times best-selling book, The Promise of a Pencil, the story of how Adam turned $25 into more than 300 schools around the world and the guiding steps anyone can take to lead a successful and significant life.
Thanks again for reading through this page. My training journal is also online.
