Pencils That Cost US$25,000?
By Dorothy Tan, 03 Dec 2012
Curator retail website Ahalife has a new product up for sale this holiday season—a set of ordinary pencils that will cost you US$25,000.
However, after reading the fine print, these appear to be much more than ordinary pencils—they are pencils that will help to build a whole school.
The pencils are part of a campaign by Pencils Of Promise, an organization that strives to bring education to children in economically challenged areas of the world.
If you find this pencil to be beyond your budget, there is a cheaper one that will allow you to build just a classroom instead.
US$25,000 for a set of pencils is expensive, but for one that builds an entire school—it may just be reasonable.
