There are currently more than 61 million children without access to education, and together we can do something about it. I have always believed that basic education is a human right, so I'm excited to continue my efforts with the Pencils of Promise movement that empowers lives around the world by building schools for children in need.

We have had great success last year creating a school in Guatemala with 12 classrooms. You can even see me playing with some of the school children in the pictures above. I am hoping to continue and improve upon our efforts to support these communities this year.

To celebrate the 5th birthday of WPBeginner, I am launching a large WordPress giveaway with a plethora of prizes. I never really ask for much in return, but if I or WPBeginner have ever helped you, then please consider donating towards this campaign.

Just a $25 donation gives a child access to education for one year. I'll match all donations up to $25,000 with my own money until we hit the goal.

That's enough to build a school. Together with your support, we'll have the opportunity to make someone's life better.

Thanks for your continual support, and remember: While one person can make a change, only together can we change the world.
