"We are honored to help support Pencils For Kids, Inc. I serve on the board of directors for the charity. Pencils For Kids is dedicated to helping children in third-world countries attend school. Many of these children would never have the opportunity to do so without the help of Pencils For Kids. The donations this year are really fantastic and I am very pleased to be associated with those who donated to this worthy cause," said Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO of Global Traveler.
