AKQA has teamed with non-profit organization Pencils of Promise (www.pencilsofpromise.org)   to launch a new fundraising and awareness initiative to promote global  literacy and education, Made with Pencils, in time for the holiday  season. Made with Pencils shows the potential in a single pencil to  affect change and share learnings, thoughts, ideas and creations. The  Made with Pencils initiative has brought together notable visionaries,  celebrities, athletes, artists and designers from around the world who  have donated pencil works for auction to raise awareness and funds for  the effort. Some initial participants include entertainers and sports  superstars such as Mariah Carey and Shaquille O’Neal, designers Jonathan  Adler and Cynthia Rowley, artists such as Joe Fenton, with many more  coming in the following weeks. Check out the website  pencilsofpromise.org/madewithpencils to view the pencil works and bid on  them in the auction, as well as gallery of user-generated pencil  creations and Pencil Shop for custom pencils.
