Pencils Make a Full Circle

We just wanted to let everyone know that all your pencils are being donated far and wide to children who will use them! Bronwyn Carnegie has taken a care package to Cambodia, to a charity she works with called Choice Cambodia.

Joy Godley posted a bunch to a school in Burma, started by a man named Myo Wynn. There are about 55 kids (pictured) at the school and the pencils were posted with 60 calculators. Good on you Joy.

The rest of our little gems are earmarked for local communities here in Australia, for example Umoona in South Australia. However if anyone has any other worthy causes, please feel free to contact us.

Sam Crawford Architects 5% creative time - thanks SCA

sam crawford architects very generously gives 5% of studio time for side projects - which gave us the space to get going with this project. thank you, sam. other people in the studio are doing various research projects, and we are getting ready to hang this project. it still takes up a heap of our spare time, but it's very helpful to be able to work on the project during office hours also. thanks again sca, from claire and felicity.
