Build Schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan with Your Pennies
Saturday, February 27, 2010 3:01 PM
To all our NoVES members and friends,
Please collect your pennies and bring them to the next Ethical Society meeting on Feb. 28th. Pennies for Peace, a charity founded by mountaineer and Three Cups of Tea author Greg Mortenson to build schools and good will in the most remote villages of Pakistan and Afghanistan, has been designated Charity of the Week this coming Sunday Feb. 28. Even a penny counts -- one cent can by a child in Afghanistan a pencil! Contribute to this successful program that helps children and families progress beyond ignorance.
Please join us on Sunday for a special presentation! We will have a large tub ready to hold a lot of pennies.
Meanwhile, here are some suggested places to look for pennies (other
denominations accepted too):
- In your pockets
- In your car
- On, in, or under your bed
- Under the pillows of your couch
- In your wallet
- On your dresser
- Under your desk
- In your piggy bank
- In your safe
- In the bank (go for it!)
