One Tree Hill star, Sophia Bush, is asking fans to help her raise $30,000 for charity to celebrate her upcoming 30th birthday. The money will be used to build a new school in Guatemala.

The actress is asking for donations to Pencils of Promise, which helps education facilities in the developing world, on her behalf in lieu of gifts. To make it easy, she has set up an online donation page for her family, friends and fans.

On the donation page, Bush writes, “My 30for30 fundraiser is part of a Pencils of Promise campaign called The Impossible Ones that will launch officially on August 1st. Everyone has an ‘Impossible’ – a challenge or milestone they’re facing. PoP’s Impossible is 100 schools in 2012. My Impossible is 30k for my 30th birthday.”

A long time supporter of the organization, Bush went on to explain why she choose Pencils for Promise.

“PoP rocks my world because they believe every child should have access to quality education…On a recent impact trip with Pencils of Promise, I met a group of young children in Guadalupana, Guatemala. I asked them what they wanted most in the world, and in unison they screamed ‘a school!! I knew I had found the village for this campaign. “It will cost $30,000 to build the school and I know we can make that happen!”
