Meet the Beneficiaries of Pencils of Promise Schools Around the World

As you probably know, we’ve teamed up with Pencils of Promise (PoP) this month to build a school. We’re giving 15 percent of proceeds from all the full-size sales in our Shop to PoP, with the goal of raising $25,000—the amount it takes to construct an entire school!

Instead of just telling you about the life-changing work that PoP does, we wanted to show you. We’ve picked just a few photos from their archives to introduce you to some of the children that PoP has benefited over the years. We also hope that these snapshots motivate you to finally pick up that lip gloss you’ve been lusting after—it’s benefiting a good cause, after all!
