Ty’s Take | New Year, New Promises

Happy 2014 folks! This might be the year of the horse, but for me, it’s a year of promises. And today I’m kicking it off with a special announcement about a new project I’ve started with Pencils of Promise.

Some pretty incredible things can happen when people come together.

So PoP is a really cool organization that partners with small communities in Laos, Ghana and Guatemala to build schools and bring quality education to children who really deserve it. All it takes to build a school in these areas is $25,000. A gift that keeps on giving for years to come! To give you a better idea of PoP and their awesome work, watch the video below…

The community I’m working to fund a new school for is called La Independencia, located in a small and isolated village in  Guatemala. Right now, the children go to school in two temporary palm structures that sit on borrowed land and lack bathroom facilities. But members of La Independencia are determined to improve the quality of education for their children, and I seriously admire their dedication. I’m stoked to be on their team!
