Coin Stars*

This week, we started our Leukemia & Lymphoma Pennies for Patients campaign at Parkside. You may recall that the poster girl is someone near and dear to us. : ) Our goal is to collect $500 over the next three weeks, and each week, the class that brings in the most change gets a special treat. This week, Georgia's class had the high total, so they'll enjoy a free game period one afternoon. Next week, the prize is popcorn and a movie in class, and the final week, it's a pizza party. Plus, I promised that if we could meet our $500 goal, one (un)lucky staffer would get a pie in the face!

Well, I don't know if it was the pie or the pizza or just the pleasure of helping others, but those rascals brought in over $970! In one week! So now, we've upped the ante to TWO pies for $1,000 - I know we can do it!

If you'd like to bring Pennies for Patients to your school, contact your local LLS chapter here, or email us! Have a great weekend, y'all!
