The child replied, sincerely: «Pencil». I>

«I am shocked that a person can not go to school. It was then that I began to realize that this is the fate of a number of children around the world. Maybe a little thing like a pencil - the basis of education, can unleash the potential of the boy? » I> - tells Adam.

We now and then repeat, that we may not affect anything and without more donations can not change someone's life. But when Adam made a mere trifle - handed the child a pencil, that belief shattered. Even big waves start with a small ripple.

In life there are moments when you realize that nothing will not be as before. Since then, the life of Adam Brown changed dramatically. When the man returned to America in his pocket it was only $ 25, but it did not become an obstacle for him. Returning home, he left a prestigious job consultant and plunged into the charity. Brown registered non-profit organization "Pencil of Hope", whose aim was to build a school in Phathenge, South Africa: «Almost everyone I knew, and parents in particular, thought it was complete idiocy. We did not have any permanent employer, or the general sponsor ». I>

In addition, there were kind people who have supported the good intentions of a Man. At the time of the collision priority you should always guide the values, not imaginary needs.
