THE STORY:

PENCILS OF PROMISE INCORPORATED wrote -


Hi everyone! I'm not usually one to ask for favors but I was hopping if y'all could make a little dream of mine come true. On November second I will be running the New York City Marathon and partner with Pencils of Promise a "for purpose" organization that focuses on building schools in under resources third world communities. Pencils of Promise focus on building schools in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Ghana and Laos and have already built over 200 schools for kids from the age of 5-12. It's my dream now to help them build a school. I know it might sound a bit crazy but sometimes crazy ideas are what lead to great things happening. That is why I am trying to fund raise three thousand dollars, an eighth of what it takes to fully build a school in any of the four countries. All of this started off by reading a book which lead me to run the marathon and now trying to build a school. The best weapon anybody can have is an education, please help me give them one.
