I am SO moved by the Pencils of Promise project that I just discovered in the Creative Sandbox by Google. Here’s a snippet of the concept that is making a huge global difference using Social Media. Inspired by one pencil…
Inspired by the potential in every pencil – to write, create, imagine, and invent – we asked a number of notable individuals from a range of backgrounds to create something made with a pencil. We then built an online auction where every penny raised from those pieces went directly to building schools and educating children in developing countries. To date, the campaign has raised enough money to build an entire school and educate more than 400 children.
This is one of many really creative projects in the Google Creative Sandbox. Go check it out & I bet you will be inspired by the generosity, talent and creativity that is bringing about real hope and change.
Thank you to +Denis Labelle for sharing Google’s Creative Sandbox.
