101,881 pens and pencils have reached 101,881 children so far…

Maybeury Elementary pen and pencil collection!

A few months since MAYBEURY ELEMENTARY in Virginia collected pens and pencils, all the supplies have been sent all over the world! A school and orphanage in Nicaragua, schools in Mexico, families in Cuba and a school in Uganda received the pens and pencils they collected. Over 1700 children were helped by the children in Maybeury. The children wrote a letter to the kids in Nicaragua where they knew 400 pens and pencils would go.



On a medical mission to Abancay, Peru, Kim Oppenheimer, packed her suitcases with clothes to donate. She was astonished that it was her pen that people continually asked for, even the nurses. Again, when she volunteered at a school in Windhoek, Namibia, she saw children using pencils an inch long. She figured if she wasn’t aware of this simple need, many other people weren’t either. She established Right-to-Write as a way to simply shift an abundance into a functional educational tool for children in developing countries. It’s a simple process that makes each person involved realize the positive impact they have upon one another.
