First off, I want to thank you once again for donating to my school build already. I just got back from another trip to Ghana, and let me tell you, it's a moving experience. It really reminded me once again why I do what I do. I do these trips pro-bono and donate all my photography to the organization to help communicate to the world the impact we are making. Education and mental transformation, I believe is the most powerful tool we can give to anyone. What I love about Pencils of Promise, is that beyond the building, the organization is dedicated to innovation and the quality of education.

Thanks to you, we are only $9.5K away from building this school, and I ask you to join me in continuing to build a school for these little ones and make another donation if you feel so inclined.

Here are a few new images fresh off the plane from Ghana.
