Pennies for Peace Community Involvement!!

Name of Organization or Cause *
Pennies for Peace

Vianne Sarber* - National American Miss Oregon Teen

Total Hours Served* -7.5 hours

The Pennies for Peace program collects pennies for the children of Pakistan and Afghanistan. I LOVE SCHOOL, so when I learned about Pennies for Peace giving kids a chance to go to school, I was excited to help! Did you know that in those countries a penny can buy a pencil and most girls don't go to school? If kids are educated then they grow up in happier communities and that gives the world a better chance for peace! I got the opportunity to collect and count money, design an informational board, make presentations in classrooms about Pennies for Peace, and bake Afghan cookies to serve at a teacher luncheon. There is so much for kids and adults to learn, so check out their website at www.penniesforpeace.org. You can also find photos, facts and how you can get involved with Pennies for Peace in your school or community! PENNIES+LOVE+EDUCATION=PEACE!
