In certain situations, you ask to see a sign to guide you in the right direction. Sometimes these calls to a higher power are answered, and sometimes we are left to seek counsel from within. But if you look for them, the signs will usually present themselves to those with open eyes. These were some of those moments when the signs could not have been any clearer…

DID YOU KNOW?

PENCILS OF PROMISE (PoP) was started by Adam Braun, a smart and charismatic young man destined for great fortunes on Wall Street. As he started his career, Adam realized that his heart was taking him in a very different direction… philanthropy. GIVEGROWGO believes in PoP and in Adam Braun. To fundraise for Pencils of Promise, please visit www.pencilsofpromise.org.

So if you’re Adam Braun or PENCILS OF PROMISE and you’ve noticed us, please give us a shoot! We would LOVE to partner with you on future school builds and find synergies between our two for-purpose organizations. GIVEGROWGO will also start a PoP Fundraising Campaign in 2016 to help build a school in Africa, so stay tuned. Photos © Pencils of Promise

PENCILS OF PROMISE is one of our favourite for-purpose movements.

PoP believes that education is a basic human right and GIVEGROWGO agrees!

Over 75 million children today live without access to even a preschool education. It’s not enough to just build a school anymore. It’s about long-term impact through sustainable ownership by local communities and support from PoP.
