Children's Lasting Power was created in October 2011 by Courtney Pisano, a then 15 year old high school student in Raleigh, NC. Children's Lasting Power helps raise money for various children's issues. In August 2012, we helped foster homes in the Raleigh, NC area as well as broke a World Record for the Largest Post-it Note Mosaic.
Courtney is now a 17 year old high school senior. Children's Lasting Power is now doing both a short term and long term event. The short term event is where we are bringing speakers from Chicago to come down to Raleigh to speak to girls and empower them on October 12, 2013. The long term event is to raise money to build a kitchen onto a school in Malawi. Children's Lasting Power created an on-line campaign in late 2012 as well as hosted a Bowl-A-Thon in May 2013 for this kitchen. The date for this kitchen is not set since she is still working on getting to the necessary goal of $11,500.
