The Gift of Writing: #PassItOn with Montblanc for UNICEF Collection



Writing is a skill. We all had probably learn how to write since pre-school. Some learn for the purpose of education. Some even grew the passion for writing. Indeed, we have never actually stop writing our whole life.

Despite living in this digital age, writing is still the form we seek to present ourselves, even if it is through our social media - like myself. The simple action of expressing emotions and thoughts through words.

If you stop and think about it, writing is in fact a precious gift.

Sadly, for some children, learning to write is a luxury. Did you know, 1 in 11 young children is being denied the right to education?

Every children has the right to learn the precious gift of writing


For this reason, Montblanc launched a collection for UNICEF - a limited edition writing instruments, watches, accessories and leather goods. The Maison has partnered with UNICEF for the last 13 years that has helped thousands of children realising their right to an equitable and inclusive education.

It is the latest chapter in the history of this special partnership, Montblanc aims to help improve learning for more than 5 million children.

From April 2017, each Montblanc Meisterstück, Writing is a Gift purchased will help fund the education of children around the world via UNICEF programs.

Inspired by the Rosetta Stone (one of the most significant object in the history of the written world), in this collection, The Maison decided to highlight the universal nature of writing and the diversity of world languages - in writing instruments, presenting in the design of the new collection six manuscript characters.

Each of the characters is the first letter of six of the most used alphabets in the world that children learn to write first, including Roman, Hindi, Arabic, and three Asian characters.
