RIGHT-TO-WRITE

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” — Dalai Lama

Right-to-Write is a unique and simple program designed for people to donate pens and pencils (new or used) to put to good use by collecting and then dispensing them to children in developing countries. Donated pens and pencils are delivered to schools, orphanages, and hospitals by individual volunteers, travelers, and organizations who can distribute them hand to hand, person to person, to children who need them.

 DONATE TO THE PROJECT

100 pens = $11.98, 500 pencils = $51.03
