First K.I.N.D. goal reached

Updated

It has been six months since Lawrence first announced our unique partnership with UNICEF. The joint effort, KIND: Kids In Needs Of Desks, provides desks to school kids in Africa.

Through your gracious generosity and support, we have now reached our first goal of raising $2.3 million. That’s 46,604 desks — enough to deliver desks to every classroom in our first four target districts in Malawi. We thank you.

We’ve already delivered over 12,000 desks to 50 schools in Malawi. And Lawrence heads back to Africa next month to see the jobs we’ve created in the small factories that are making these desks and the thousands of students we have already picked up off the floor in their classrooms.

If you would like to help us build and deliver more desks in Malawi, you can donate on our website LastWordDesks.msnbc.com or call the UNICEF hotline, 1-800-FOR-KIDS.
