This December, Common Cents is joining schools and other non-profit organizations around the country for #GivingTuesday. We hope you’ll join us on December 2nd to support our signature program Penny Harvest. This year, we’ve set a goal of raising $ 10,000 on #GivingTuesday, the proceeds of which will support Penny Harvest supplies, student leaders training and community building experience school wide.
The Penny Harvest shows young people they have the ability to make the world a better place by introducing them to the power of philanthropy and service during their formative years. As children help others, they develop their generosity and moral character, and they learn through practice the skills and responsibilities of democratic participation.
Principals and parents find that the Penny Harvest encourages a caring culture and sense of belonging; teachers see it as an opportunity to enhance curriculum through a blend of service-learning, character education, and child philanthropy; community leaders value the millions of dollars and hours that children donate back to better our communities; and kids like the program because it’s fun!
We encourage you to join the giving on December 2nd by either mailing in a donation or by clicking on the “Make a Gift” button below. Thank you for your continued support and for supporting philanthropic giving!
Stay tuned for stories from our student leaders and coaches about the Penny Harvest program!
