Your %%Launch_Date%% Pennies for Patients campaign is kicking off! Hit the ground running by completing these important steps:
Collect and deposit donations at least once a week. (See page 8 of the Coordinator Guide for helpful tips.)
Post ongoing reminders about the online giving option in your school's e-newsletter and on the website and social media. (See page 11 for examples of posts you can use.) Don't be afraid to ask for donations multiple times—everyone benefits from reminders!
Check how many students have created their online giving pages. Make school announcements that encourage students to use these pages to gather donations.
Start tracking progress on the school-wide thermometer chart and proudly display it!
We think you and everyone at %%School_Name%% are kind of a big deal! Thanks for all you're doing to make blood cancers a thing of the past.
Promising advancements in blood cancers research are also showing potential with other types of cancers and serious diseases. Learn more about LLS research.
So, just how many pennies are produced in the US? Pennies alone are produced by the U.S. Mint at a rate of 1,040 coins every second. Your students should have no trouble finding plenty of coins to collect!

"Our community has personally been affected by cancer many times, and it fills me with hope to think that through the research we are funding, no more people will be added to the list."
