Most people love GETTING gifts on their birthday, but how many can say they love GIVING them instead??
Sophia Bush can!
The money, when raised, will be used to build a new school in Guatemala.
Here's what she said about it:
“My 30for30 fundraiser is part of a Pencils of Promise campaign called The Impossible Ones that will launch officially on August 1st. Everyone has an ‘Impossible’ – a challenge or milestone they’re facing. PoP’s Impossible is 100 schools in 2012. My Impossible is 30k for my 30th birthday.
“PoP rocks my world because they believe every child should have access to quality education…On a recent impact trip with Pencils of Promise, I met a group of young children in Guadalupana, Guatemala. I asked them what they wanted most in the world, and in unison they screamed ‘a school!! I knew I had found the village for this campaign. It will cost $30,000 to build the school and I know we can make that happen!”
She even wants to make it as easy on you as possible — just check out the donation page she's set up with Pencils of Promise HERE.
Good luck, Sophia!
And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
