Penny Wars at Your School!
Attention ALL Teachers and Students!
Are you looking for a fun and engaging way to make a difference in the world and earn volunteer hours at the same time? Look no further than a Penny Wars fundraiser for Girl Power Africa!
Penny Wars is a fun and innovative way to raise funds where classrooms or teams compete against each other to collect the most spare change. Each team has a collection jar, where pennies count as one point, and one dollar counts as 100 points, five dollars counts as 500 points, while one hundred dollars counts as 10,000 points. However, the competition has a twist: pennies and bills add positive points to the team’s total, while silver coins subtract negative points. Participants can put silver coins (negative points) into other teams’ collection jars to take away points from them. The ultimate goal is to have the highest positive point total at the end of the competition, and the team with the most points wins.
The best part? All of the donations collected through Penny Wars goes towards supporting a great cause; providing education for children in need, empowering women with the resources to become self-sufficient entrepreneurs, and purchasing basic need items for those less fortunate.
To get started with your Penny Wars fundraiser, simply choose your non-profit organization, Girl Power Africa. Then, set a fundraising goal and encourage everyone to bring in their spare change to contribute.
To make the competition even more exciting, consider offering incentives for the classroom or team that raises the most money. This could be an ice cream or pizza party, a movie day, or even a trophy to display in the classroom.
So, what are you waiting for? Start your Penny Wars fundraiser today and see how your spare change can make a big impact in the lives of those in need.
Let’s show the world how even small donations can create big change!
