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
