by Marissa on July 1, 2011

First of all, I’m sorry that I haven’t posted a blog since April. I’ve been really busy with schoolwork and other activities. But, now, because it’s summer, I have a lot of free time to post more! So, definitely be sure to stay tuned for more posts because they will come!! :)

Now, onto the real reason for this blog: Pencils of Promise (PoP)!!!

Thanks to all of you guys the “Pencils of Promise: Schools4All” campaign raised a whopping $285,538!!! That’s enough money to build 14 schools for uneducated children all around the world! On July 5th, Justin Bieber and Adam Braun (founder of PoP) will announce the page that fundraised the most money and the school that they will be visiting very soon!! :) So, good luck to everyone who participated! But, even if you don’t win the grand prize, you should still be very proud that you helped many kids who are less fortunate than us.

Although the contest is over, you can still donate money at to help build schools for many kids around the world! Don’t forget to visit on July 5th to see if Justin Bieber and Adam Braun are coming to your school!
