Back to school...

For most of us, it means new shoes, school supplies and a fabulous new haircut!

But, what if you lived in Guatemala, or Ghana, or Laos...and your child had no access to a quality education?

At Cartoon Cuts, our journey to help children began with a question.  There was a small boy begging, in the streets of India.  He was approached by college student, Adam Braun, who asked,

"What do you want most in the world?"

He replied, "A pencil."

Adam reached into his backpack, handed him a pencil, and watched as a wave of possibility washed over him.

This is the story of Pencils of Promise (PoP), a for-purpose organization that builds schools and provides educational opportunities in the developing world.  At Cartoon Cuts, we believe that every child has the basic right to education.  So, we asked PoP...how could we help?

We could build a school.  In Guatemala.  Our kids helping other kids. 

The goal is $25,000.  The reward is HUGE.

Cartoon Cuts will run different promotions throughout the year at our salons located throughout Florida, Maryland and Virginia. We are currently selling pencils at our salons for donations towards our goal.
 
 We will be collecting donations on this page all year long, too! We love the idea of teaching kids how important it is to give back, and we hope that you will help support our mission to build a school in Guatemala!
