We all have walked past that random penny that has been thrown to the ground. We’ve all heard that saying, “A penny saved is a penny earned” or “A penny for your thoughts”.  But, how much will a penny buy you today? Can you still go into a store, like the good ‘ole days, and purchase anything for a penny? Unfortunately, it would be a challenge (quite impossible actually) to find anything in today’s economy for a penny. However, put many pennies together and you see a dramatic change in what you can buy.

To me, youth volunteers are a lot like pennies. Youth volunteers are highly underrated in their ability to give back to their community, taking the work of youth volunteers for granted.  Some believe you have to be a certain age to contribute and make a difference in the community.  However, as one we can contribute to small causes but put us together with other volunteers and we can literally change the world. Volunteers create movements and movements change the world.

With that said, Kidz Showing Kindness (KSK) is starting the KSK Penny Project.  We want to show that pennies, just like youth volunteers, can make a difference. Throughout the year, we are encouraging people across America to collect every penny they come across and we will come together twice a year to roll the pennies and donate all money we have collected to a local charity in the community.

This is something that can be done in every community and a great way to get children involved.  Children love to help and what a perfect way to teach them about the importance of saving and giving back to their local community.

Remember the old saying:

“See a penny pick it up 
All day long you’ll have good luck 
Pass it on to a friend 
Then your luck will never end”
