This morning I stumbled upon a Blog titled 1,000,000 Pennies for Girl Scouts of Japan. The author, a second year Girl Scout named Elisabeth, is learning lessons in charity, empathy and math. She has decided to start on a journey to try to collect one million pennies, by her birthday in April, to be donated to the Girl Scouts of Japan to aid in their relief efforts after the devastating earthquake and tsunami.
While a million pennies may seem an unreachable goal, half the fun is the journey! Currently, Elisabeth has collected 12,845 pennies! Help her on her way here: firstname.lastname@example.org
