I’ve always believed that if there was ever one positive addiction, it is to serve others.
The team here is grateful beyond words that we’ve been able to raise millions of dollars for the causes we believe in… and that we’re motivated now, more than ever, to give back as much as possible.
In fact, we’re committed to giving at an uncomfortable level (where I’m personally a bit nervous about the number of zeros on the check investment)… but that is one of the most powerful indicators that you’re making progress on your path to Greatness.
It is simply because real meaning in life comes from impact.
We make sure that when you invest in Lewis Howes programs, books, and events, a significant portion of funds goes back into the community.
The Impact Footprint You’ve Helped To Create
Lewis Howes is without a doubt one of our most engaged and passionate supporters. Since 2012, Lewis has helped raise awareness about PoP’s mission to increase children’s access to quality education—and he’s done so in many different ways. Through personal campaigns, social media, attendance at our PoP Galas, his book—School of Greatness—and even everyday conversations with friends, Lewis has championed the cause of Pencils of Promise. To date, he’s led 5 campaigns, which makes him part of the top 2% of PoP campaigners who have done 3+ campaigns. These campaigns have brought in 303 contributions, showing the incredible way in which Lewis has engaged his community to amplify the support for kids’ education. Thanks to his campaigns and generosity, Lewis has made 4 school builds possible: 2 in Guatemala, 1 in Laos and an upcoming school in Ghana that is currently under construction.
Lewis is also one of our most traveled supporters. Together, we’ve journeyed to our countries of impact to engage in PoP’s programs firsthand, and our teams in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos always look forward to hosting Lewis on PoP Field Trips! Not only has Lewis visited some of our country teams multiple times, but also he’s the first one to get involved in an in-country activity, like dancing at a school inauguration, and he never fails to bring smiles to the faces of everyone around him.
Lewis, all of our teams are grateful for your continued dedication to our students, communities and countries! You’ve made quality education possible for thousands of students.
