A picture is worth a thousand words but we cannot say enough about the character of the people we have grown to know and love.

Maurice Bonhomme

Maurice is a hero. This married father of three inspired the creation of No.2 Pencils through his commitment to continue his fathers legacy at Ecole St. Joseph in Petit Goave, Haiti. Working nights as the executive chef at a five star restaurant and days with his chidlhood friend, Jean Cayemitte as security guards at New Trier High School in Winnetka, IL, together these fine men have supported the school for over 30 years funding teacher salaries and tuition for more than150 students.
