Summer Donation 2011 Update

18 June 2012 No Comment

First and foremost, thanks for all the support everyone! Last summer we were able to donate 800 pens alongside $800 to the most disadvantaged schoolchildren in East Africa via the generosity of our partners, the Delbarton School BEADS Program. The Delbarton School students left for Africa on June 10th and were able to donate the 800 pens and $800 to the children and their communities most in need. Because the same pens bought in the U.S. can be bought in East Africa for nearly half the price, the $800 proved to be a cost-effective investment and aided local economies. Program coordinator Brian Theroux recognized that this donation method would “turn one pen in the bag into a dozen in the village.”

Thanks again to the Delbarton BEADS Program for their continued support and keep checking back for updates on our next donation slated for later this summer!
