Pencils of Promise: An Organization that is Doing Good and Making People Happy

pencils of promise

Pencils of Promise is an organization founded in 2008, by Adam Braun. I have read about Adam’s story and heard him speak on a number of podcasts. He tells the story better than I certainly could or even should. Here is a person that is practicing Goodness better than anyone I have read about in a long time. As cited on their website Pencils for Promise creates schools, programs and global communities around the common goal of education for all.

As of 2015, according to their website, they have built 297 schools, served 31,240 students and delivered 24.3 million hours of education. You can donate to their program directly on their website, and every dollar donated is accounted for and this is an organization that takes action and is really doing what they say they are going to do.
