Second grade Girl Scout Elizabeth has started a blog titled 1,000,000 Pennies for Girl Scouts of Japan. She is trying to collect one million pennies by her birthday in April to be donated to the Girl Scouts of Japan. In the process of helping aid Japan in their relief efforts after the devastating earthquake and tsunami, Elizabeth is learning lessons in charity, empathy and math.
While a million pennies may seem an unreachable goal, half the fun is the journey! Currently, Elisabeth has collected 20,445 pennies! Help her on her way here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
