Frequently Asked Questions

What is your organization's mission?

Our mission is to nurture the creativity and self-expression of children by providing them with a safe and supportive platform for sharing their thoughts, ideas, and imagination. Through our efforts, we aim to help children develop the confidence and skills needed to communicate effectively and contribute positively to their communities.

How does your organization fund its activities?

We rely on donations from individuals, foundations, and corporations.

Can I make a donation in honor of someone else?

Yes, we accept donations in honor of loved ones, and we can provide acknowledgement cards to notify them of your gift.

How can I volunteer to help with your organization's activities?

Please let us know you're interested in volunteering by sending a message on our Contact Us Page.

How do you measure the impact of your organization's work?

Through accepting pencil donations, donating to kids in need, and recycling pencils, we are making a positive impact on the environment by saving trees and supporting education.

How does your organization ensure that donations are used effectively?

We have a rigorous process in place to ensure that cash and pencil donations are used effectively, and we regularly report on our progress to donors.

How do you recycle pencils?

We use TerraCycle. Once we’ve collected enough pencils, we ship them to TerraCycle using their Zero Waste Boxes™. The costs associated are not with the physical box itself, but rather the service provided. As this service is completely independent of their free recycling programs, there are no brand partners who sponsor the service. The cost includes the shipping to us and back to them as well as the recycling process of the pencils. TerraCycle is a private, for-profit company.
