Pennies for a cause


Sat, Dec 4th, 2010
Posted in Faith & Worship

Fountain Lutheran Church Sunday School collected pennies for a good cause. Pennies for Peace collects (no surprise!) pennies that are donated to build schools. Recently our Sunday School kids joined in collecting Pennies for Peace-we collected $170.05! We were amazed at what we could accomplish by collecting pennies in pop cans - one penny at a time.

We are joining other groups of kids across the nation by sending our collection to the Central Asia Institute, founded by Greg Mortenson, which has been establishing schools and offering children hope for a better future since 1993.

The Pennies for Peace program is designed to help students broaden their cultural horizons and learn about their capacities as philanthropists. It educates students about the world beyond their experience and shows them that they can make a positive impact on a global scale, one penny at a time. Students learn the rewards of sharing and working together to bring hope and educational opportunities to the children in Pakistan and Afghanistan. While a penny is virtually worthless, in impoverished countries a penny buys a pencil and opens the door to literacy. I'd been having a really hard time explaining to adults why I wanted to help students in Pakistan," Mortenson says. "But the kids got it right away. When they saw the pictures, they couldn't believe that there was a place where children sat outside in cold weather and tried to hold classes without teachers. They decided to do something about it."
