The Promise of a Pencil - its message will change you

Ok, I know I tend to rave about topics I'm interested in, but here is a book that I suspect will fall in the category of *personally life changing* for me.

Adam Braun founded Pencils of Promise organization (http://pencilsofpromise.org/) at age 24 with just $25. POP seeks to build schools that provide primary education for students that wouldn't otherwise be able to receive it because of the extreme poverty they endure.

Pencils of Promise partners with local communities, matching their support, funds, and oversight with commitments by local village families of materials and labor to build needed classrooms.

As detailed in "The Promise of a Pencil: How an Ordinary Person Can Create Extraordinary Change," Adam Braun tells his personal story of what inspired him to take on such a task, an effort that has now resulted in the construction of over 300 schools worldwide since 2009, serving more than 33,000 students.

If you've ever thought about whether one person's efforts matter, or what it takes to start monumental change, this is an amazing story that will inspire you.
