Thank You for Going Beyond the Ordinary:

Celebrating 10 Years of PoP

Inspired by our mission of education for all, the 2018 Pencils of Promise Gala brought together the worlds of entertainment, art, technology and storytelling in celebration of the organization's 10th anniversary. The PoP Gala is one of the most highly-anticipated charity events in New York City. This year, the annual gala attracted nearly 700 culture-shapers, change-drivers and luminaries who collectively raised $3 million for global education. All funds raised at the event go toward delivering quality education programs to children in the developing world.

Currently, there are 250 million kids globally who can’t read and write—together we're changing this.
