Over 57 million children went without access to primary education in 2011.
That’s the bad news. The good news is:
“We have the ability to provide quality education to every child on earth right now.”
– Adam Braun, Founder of Pencils of Promise
In other words: We can totally do something about it.
In this video (AKA the most meaningful book report I’ve ever presented…), I’ll tell you THREE specific somethings you can do to make a difference TODAY, along with:
- why I’m confident donating (what was formerly) an entire year’s salary to Pencils of Promise
- how Adam turned his original $25 investment into over 200 schools in just five years
- a super-powerful, three-word recipe for purpose-driven success (inspired by the PoP story)

Ready to do something?
I’ve got some ideas for ya.
Something 1: Buy the book.
If you’ve got a dream and a purpose you KNOW you’re called to share, you’re going to love this book.
(PLUS, all proceeds benefit Pencils of Promise, which is absolutely amazing.)

It’s time for us to do something, friend.
In fact, I’ve had this song actually called “Do Something” by Matthew West in my head all weekend as I wrote this post for you.
We can consider it the book report soundtrack:
If not us, then who?
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something
If not now, then when?
Will we see an end
To all this pain?
It’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something.
So you ready?
In the comments today, do tell:
- Which of these somethings will YOU do to make a difference today?
- What’s one of your favorite #PoPbook quotes?
Can’t wait to see what you come up with :)
To pencils and promises,
