Pennies, Nickels, Dimes, & Quarters from Heaven
Please join Family-to-Family in raising funds for the many orphanages in Port-au-Prince, Haiti that were destroyed by the powerful earthquake on January 12th. Pennies From Heaven – a “kids-to-kids” effort – is a tested fundraising program that helped us raise over $5,000 for orphanages throughout Tsunami ravaged Indonesia after the 2004 Tsunami… and we can do it again! An in-school effort, we are reaching out to parents and school administrators… hoping you will galvanize your children and students and join our effort to help the children of Haiti.
