Every year I’m astounded by the generosity of complete strangers who find this website and have the heart to either donate pens or bring them on their African journeys, but this year may take the cake! I recently received an inspiring letter from 7th-grader Ryan DeWitt of Fairfield, CT expressing his gratitude for our mission alongside 275 pens he helped collect at his middle school (see below).
