Please join us next Wednesday 21 January 7.50pm AEST on GoToMeeting to hear guest speaker Malcolm O'Brien from Pens for Kids UK
We are excited to have as our guest speaker next week Malcolm O'Brien from Pens for Kids UK (www.pensforkids.co.uk), an organisation that collects and distributes all those miscellaneous pens we have floating around in our office drawers to children who might not ever have a pen to call their own.
The numbers are amazing, for instance in 2012 270,850 pens and pencils were collected and shipped to many African countries, including Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania, and Peru and Liberia!
The Rotary E-Club of Melbourne will shortly be launching a similar project, albeit not on such a large scale, called Pens4Pals.
Malcolm has kindly offered to speak about what Pens for Kids (PFK) does, the history of PFK, its current status and how we might carry out our similar project and/or partner with Pens for Kids.
