Elephants for Guatemala | Ty Pennington's Pencils of Promise Fundraiser

I wanted to share a quick update on the progress of my Pencils of Promise fundraiser. It’s been an incredible journey so far and I’m overwhelmed by all of the support from my team members. Thanks again for making this dream a reality!

So we have $21,511 raised out of our $25,000 goal… can you smell the success!?

My team got in touch with our anonymous supporter spotlight a few weeks back to collaborate on this next mini campaign, and I think it’s pretty awesome that Cee Cee wanted to contribute.

So for the next month, Cee Cee will be knitting as many elephants as she possibly can. You can keep up with her progress on the Elephants Remember Joplin Facebook page and cheer her on by sponsoring elephants and leaving comments! As Cee Cee knits her elephants, she will be auctioning them off and all proceeds will be donated to my La Independencia team. Pretty cool, right?

Cee Cee already finished the first elephant this week and its rocking the colors of the Guatemalan flag. How cool! So we’re giving this first elephant away right here on the site. Keep reading to see how you can win it. Totally exclusive!

Thanks Cee Cee for the support. You rock!
