Pennies for Patients: Kids making a huge impact on patients' lives.
Pennies for Patients is a service learning, character education and philanthropy program that gives students a unique experience by making a difference through teamwork—working together to aid thousands of children and adults in the fight against blood cancers like leukemia.
How it Works: Students collect money over a three-week period during February or March. The money can come from friends or relatives or underneath the couch cushions. What's important is that it's collected.
Why it's Easy: LLS provides everything your school needs to run the program, including:
- Lesson plans that meet service learning and character education standards
- Classroom collection boxes
- Individual collection boxes
- Educational video
- Prizes and awards for classrooms and schools
- Opportunity for an educational kickoff assembly
Register today! We're hoping that you will join schools across North America & Canada in teaching kids what it means to save lives by making change! Complete our online registration form or contact us for more information.
Students not only enjoy participating, but feel a great sense of pride in helping others. Their efforts will gain the gratitude of blood cancer patients everywhere.
