WE BELIEVE EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS!
There are millions of kids who dream about going to school, who would love to have a new book, a teacher that cares for them, and a beautifully sharpened pencil. Those are the kids I seek to help and I’m 100% positive I found a way to do it!
For a long time I have been giving 10% of my profits back to a different charity every month and while I loved the process of selecting a new charity and making those deep personal connection with people, my heart kept calling me back to one organization in particular, so after many sleepless nights I have decided to take the plunge and pledge to build a school with Pencils of Promise.
Why Pencils of Promise?
Over 250 million children can’t read! 250 million!! As a former teacher, number sounds crazy to me! Books are my life people! I could not even imagine. I am constantly reading and have a deep love of books, I collect children’s books and also Young Adult fantasy books - vampires and wizards for the win! I cannot comprehend children who do not have access to all the amazing children’s literature out there! I’m so happy I found Pencils of Promise. Pencils of Promise works with communities across the globe to build schools and create programs with the goal of increasing access to quality education for children in the developing world. That is awesome! Another fabulous fact about Pencils of Promise is that 100% of the donations to our campaign will go towards building the school - 100%.
Each month until we have reached the $35K needed to build a school I will donate a portion of our companies proceeds to our campaign. Wanna help? You can purchase products from any of our shop or you can donate directly to our campaign here!
Every month we give a portion of our proceeds to Pencils of Promise. Pencils of Promise works with communities across the globe to build schools and create programs with the goal of increasing access to quality education for children in the developing world. We have pledged to build an entire school in the next five years, so with every purchase you make, we are one step closer to making the lives of children in need better.
