THE STORY:

We are a group of sixth grade boys at the United Nations International School.  We believe that "every child has a right to an education."  So, we started a 'business' called the Wild Pencil Makers. We sell specialty pencils, erasers and other goods to raise money for a Haitian boy, named Stevenson. By sponsoring Stevenson, we feel we can help him with his daily needs and support his long term medical, and educational wellbeing. 

We want to make a difference, change a child's life, and assist the people of Haiti. Our vision is to set up a sustainable, non profit business which will help Stevenson reach his true potential. Helping Stevenson makes us happy!

We have been donating books and clothes to Haiti since the 2010 earthquake and some of our parents have been involved with similar work at the UN. We thought this would be a perfect way to continue our efforts more consistently.

The Wild Pencil Makers (WPM) intend to support Stevenson over the course of several years, and will use Crowdrise to raise funds to donate directly to Stevenson. We will also raise funds to invest in other products like pens that convert to pencils, and T-shirts that can be sold to earn money for Stevenson.

The WPM have met with the Board of Directors at the The United Nations International School to discuss how to further implement our ideas, and received many kind donations from its members. We also have the generous support of the Director of our school, Ms. Jane Camblin, who has agreed to match our earnings!  Our Junior School Principal, Shireen Apanna, and our Middle School Principal, Mr. Chad Fairey have shown great support for our project.

To learn more about our vision, please see the power point and iMovie we have created with the help of our wonderful teacher Ms. Karen Ager, who has been guiding our efforts:

We plan to communicate with Stevenson regularly, and will be sponsoring him through Plan International USA.  According to Plan International USA, sponsorship effects "... lasting change for the children sponsored..., his or her family, and an entire community."  Sponsors become "...involved in community development... which allows [sponsored] children, to determine their path to a sustainable future."
 
The funds will also "...be combined with those of other sponsors to fund projects that are crucial to health, education, housing, livelihood opportunities, and water supplies...."

Any donation you make will be greatly appreciated and go toward helping a child and his community on an immediate and long term basis.

Thank you for your help,
