Want to make the year of a kid you love? Bringing Justin Bieber for a personal visit to her school would probably do it.
Pencils of Promise (PoP), a nonprofit that builds schools in the developing world, is working with two-time Grammy nominee Justin Bieber on our Schools4All.org campaign ending on June 30 -- and the superstar is offering to personally visit the school named by the top Pencils of Promise supporter.
Schools4All is a fundraising challenge that engages students, schools and parents to partake in solving the global education crisis where the top fundraiser wins a personal visit from Justin Bieber and PoP Founder Adam Braun to their own school or one of their choice.
And we want BlogHer to help. Check out this video Justin and Adam made, premiering here on BlogHer.com:
Right now, a donation or individual raise of $10,000 would enable someone to take the lead in the competition. The live leaderboard is posted at Schools4All.org.
"Justin and I have envisioned this campaign for years, and we're looking forward to visiting the school of the top fundraiser," said Adam Braun, PoP Founder and Executive Director. "75 million children lack access to education, and Schools4All.org is our way of showing that each person can play an important role in solving the global education crisis. Thousands of people have signed up already, and together we’re going to build many new schools alongside the communities that need them most."
Justin Bieber added: "This is about everyone out there realizing that they can make a difference, and together we can all help make a change for others through education."
