Every week other bloggers and I post pictures of gorgeous bedrooms and we discuss every little detail down to the trim. In the grand scheme of things just having a safe place to sleep is so much more important. Paloma Contreras of La Dolce Vita has asked many bloggers to come together today to help raise money for a wonderful 501(c)(3) organization and one of their projects. The money that is raised through this blogger initiative will build dormitories and a library just for girls who are otherwise sleeping in huts. Pencils of Promise is based in New York and they partner with local communities and organizations to build schools in developing nations for some of the world’s most impoverished and undereducated children. It is hard to imagine spending each day away from your family just to receive a high school education at the only secondary school in the area.
Adam Braun, the creator of Pencils of Promise, writes
In the spirit of the holiday season, I am asking for you to make a donation towards this project. Just think of the enormous impact we could have if each person who reads this post donates just $5.00. Just my blog alone could do so much for these girls. We are in the midst of the giving season and I hope that you will please take the time to make a donationby clicking HERE to this worthy cause today.
If you would like to stay informed about the difference Pencils of Promise is making, be sure to become a fan on their Facebook page.
