Last week I was invited by Dominica supermodel Arlenis Sosa and my buddy Patricia to this amazing Pencils of Promise Charity Event. Pencils of Promise was founded by Adam Braun when he went to India, and he saw poor kids begging on the street. He asked one kid, If you could have anything in the world, what would it be? This poor kid who had absolutely nothing went on to say that he wish he could have "a pencil." Wow, Can you believe that? This kid had nothing, and all he wanted was a pencil. That happpened three years ago and since then Pencils For Promise had created over 30 schools around the world in poor countries. This story touches me so much. The night of the Pecils of Promise event, they raised over a million dollars (Rumor was Justin Bieber actually donated 1 million himself.) Anyway click below to see some fun pics from the event:
Usher and I
Shaq and I
I just want to say something. I saw about 200 people ask Shaq to take pics with them, and he did it so nicely. Every single one of them got a pic, and he was in the midst of eating and he still took pics with everyone and smiled and was super friendly. So big shout out to Shaq for being so wonderful to his fans.
All in all a great night. For more info on pencils of Promise, click here.
