In our November, 2014 blog post “A Pencil and a Dream Can Take You Anywhere” we wrote about our involvement with Pencils of Promise.
Pencils of Promise (POP) is non-profit organization that builds schools, trains teachers and funds scholarships to provide quality education for children in developing countries. 100% of every dollar donated online goes directly into programs to educate children.
Because quality education for children is important to Dr. Olson, he pledged to donate $2 for each patient visit, each quarter until he reached his donation goal of $25,000. So, how are we doing at reaching our goal? We are excited to say that as of July 29, 2015 we have collected $15,311.00!
