Pennies For Life

A few years ago a good home schooling friend started collecting Pennies For Life. She would bring the donation jar to our faculty meetings and ask for families to bring some change to donate to our local Pro-Life center. She is now "graduated" from the group and yours truly has taken over the Pennies For Life Campaign. I've just finished counting last years donations $40 - not bad for spare change. I am going to send a check to the Pro-Life center from our home school group. This money is used to help provide for women in crisis pregnancies so that they will not be afraid to CHOOSE LIFE! I am hopeful that this donation amount will continue to grow and that one day in the not too distant future abortion will be a thing of the past!

I also took advantage of this opportunity to have a little math lesson with Buck and Honeybee.
They helped me sort the change.
We also had the first of many talks about the value of money. Buck didn't quite get it - When asked if he'd rather have 100 pennies or a dollar bill he quickly said
"100 pennies!"
