My school has participated in the Penny Harvest for many years. I have had the honor of being on three Philanthropy Roundtables and of carefully selecting deserving charities to receive over $2500. A year and a half ago, we had our annual Coin Sort (we take all coins.) Common Cents had sent over two of their Fellows to observe. Since I was the student in charge at that event, I gave them a tour of our school, showed them our community service bulletin boards, and described our many community service projects. They suggested that I might want to meet Teddy, the CEO of Common Cents. Teddy asked if I was interested in helping out. I was very interested! So, I became the "intern to the intern," (aka the "grandintern"), and I began working for them. At the Global Relief Conference following the Run for Change last Spring, I was the kid M.C. My job was to introduce each speaker and to be the person on the stage representing the kids that Common Cents is all about. It was so exciting to be speaking to hundreds of kids and adults and to be representing this organization that I feel so strongly about. I support Common Cents because their mission is to teach children to help others and to help them learn how to do it themselves. From generation to generation. Please sponsor me in supporting Common Cents.
