About Our Philanthropy:
It’s Riley’s 5th birthday! In lieu of presents, we’re asking friends and family to contribute to the Team Hill School Project – a comprehensive family undertaking in which we’ll empower and support Riley and Weston to raise enough money to build a school in partnership with Pencils of Promise. Once Team Hill has raised the money to build this school, our entire family will travel with Pencils of Promise to help physically build the school.
More than 250 million children of primary school age lack basic reading, writing and math skills. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Pencils of Promise is an incredible organization that is delivering long-term, sustainable education for communities through a holistic, community-driven approach. Pencils of Promise has built more than 429 schools in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos since 2009. We’re inspired by the work they are doing to create schools, programs and global communities around the common goal of education for all. They are changing what a learning experience can be for a child anywhere in the world, and we’d like to help them. In honor of Riley’s upcoming birthday, we’d like to raise $500 towards our larger goal of building a school in partnership with Pencils of Promise.
