Renegade Pencils silent auction on Tuesday July 13th at Hi-Fi, 169 Avenue A @ 11th Street. Renegade Pencils is a group of three friends, Ewan Adams, John Robertson and Jason Koxvold, who are about to hit the road for a six week, 8,000 mile journey from London to Mongolia in an effort to raise $30,000 to build three schools, putting pencils in the hands of children who might not otherwise have had access to an education. They depart on July 24 and expect to arrive in Ulaanbaater on or around September 4.
Partnering with Pencils of Promise, every $10,000 they raise will build a schoolhouse in a developing country. Along the way, they will be holding workshops in schools promoting prosperity through creative education.
Silent auction items include, original artwork by Shepard Fairey, Nike football boots signed by Ronaldo, accessories by Matt Singer, Freemans Sporting Goods, and Madewell.
