The Problem

Often we forget how blessed we are with the opportunities we have. We take for granted the enormous pleasure of having free public education, the ability to go to school, etc. Not everyone is given this opportunity because often some places cannot afford to build schools in order to educate people. A better education equals a better life.

Plan of Action

Contact teachers of our school and see who is interested in participating in Pennies for Peace. An incentive of goodie bags for the teacher who raises the most money is given. Create jars for the participating teachers and advertise. Set up the jars in classrooms and collect them after a couple of weeks. A huge impact was made. We raised a total of $234.51 in just a few weeks time. This will help build the schools in Southeast Asia and it got people aware of global problems.
