You might remember that last year, we hosted a fundraiser that earned $120,000 for one of my favorite charities, Pencils of Promise.
What does Pencils of Promise do? They build schools in developing countries, like Ghana, Guatemala, and Laos. And with the money we raised, we were able to build THREE schools in Ghana, which is in West Africa.
One of the schools is officially complete and students have started using it — how freakin’ cool is that!?
In case you want all the details on that fundraiser, like…
- How we raised six figures with our community in two weeks.
- Why we chose the charity we did, and my personal connection to it.
- Other ways you can give back (that don’t include money).
…Then check out THIS post. I describe everything we did to make the fundraiser a success and how you can replicate it if giving back is part of your mission too.
Now, that fundraiser was in February 2017 — a little more than a year ago. A few months later, in August 2017, myself and a few members of my team had the chance to go to Ghana to actually visit the schools and meet the communities they would impact.
Y’all. It was life altering.
And hey, we made a video to tell you all about the experience and why the work that Pencils of Promise does is so important. 🙂 Check it out below! Keep on Readin' about The Impact You Helped Us Create in Ghana
