Pennies for Peace

What is The Power of a Penny?

Pennies for Peace teaches children the rewards of sharing and working together to bring hope and educational opportunities to children in Pakistan and Afghanistan. A penny in the United states has little worth, but in In Pakistan and Afghanistan a penny buys a pencil and opens the door to literacy:

1 penny = one pencil
2 pennies = one eraser
15 pennies = one notebook
$2 or $3 = one teacher’s salary for one day
$20 = one student’s school supplies for one year
$600 = one teacher’s annual salary
$5,000 = support for existing school for one year
$50,000 = one school building and support for up to five years

From now through May 24th we are asking the girls to redirect the pennies they have been saving for scouts, to PENNIES FOR PEACE.  

1.     Girls will need to use the KING COIN machine at the Riverside bank to count the change. 
      You will be given a receipt

2.     Take a deposit slip and using the receipt make the deposit into the troop account.           ( contact Mrs. Winkler for this number)

3.      Save you deposit receipt and turn in at the May 24th Meeting. One check will be made once all deposits have been tallied.

Our girls have been given so much. They seemed quite excited to be able to give to other children their age.
