This summer Building Tomorrow has revamped its blog with the help of our amazing interns. Below are a few excerpts. Check out to follow our updates all summer long! 


This summer we are trying to boost our support base on Twitter and we thought who better to help us than rapper extraordinaire, Ellen Degeneres. So we wrote a little ditty to the tune of her favorite song, that we think you (and Ellen, obviously) will enjoy. Go ahead, click ‘play’, and if you like what you see, be sure to show all your friends. With your help it might make its way all the way to Ellen!

Random Opportunities of Kindness

Ellie Chernosky of the University of Texas at Austin contacted us out of the blue about getting involved. As philanthropy chair for her sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma, she was looking for a meaningful cause for the chapter to get involved with. She was researching online when she stumbled across our small but mighty organization. She was taken with BT’s purpose and knew that it was the perfect cause for Kappa to rally around. In an email that she recently sent us, she said that after exploring our website—particularly—and learning about our other active college chapters, she was excited about Building Tomorrow’s mission and all the ways there are to fundraise and tell others about the cause.








Why We Do What We Do - A BT Intern's Point of View

The number of charities and organizations representing various causes can be overwhelming. The search term “non-profit organizations” itself gets 38,800,000 hits on Google. So it’s reasonable for me to consider my position, giving up my summer for no pay as an intern at one of those establishments, and ask myself a fundamental question. “Why?” Among all the things one could devote herself to, is building schools in a country all the way across the ocean actually important? Is it necessary? Is it worth it? And why Building Tomorrow?

Education is important. To make that education obtainable, schools are necessary. And if I can improve another person’s life by building that infrastructure, then working at Building Tomorrow is definitely worth it.


Thank you again for your support of Building Tomorrow!
