All you need to do is ask your students to bring in their pennies, dimes, quarters, dollars…whatever!  Put out a collection box labeled “Quest for a Million Pennies”, and turn your money into New Country Z100’s radiothon for St. Jude Kids in March!   The Quest is for any age, any classroom, anywhere!  You could be a teacher of a Pre-K class and participate!  You could be a teacher of a college class and participate!  You could even teach  a Sunday School class and participate!  So get on board the Quest for a Million Pennies!

Some things to keep in mind:

-It’s easy to do!  Individual classrooms can be involved, or even whole school districts.

-Place a container labeled “Quest for a Million Pennies” out for your students to bring in their pennies.

-Collect donations NOW through the first half of March

-Make it FUN!  Challenge other classes, grade levels, businesses, teachers, whoever!  (Example:  If one classroom reaches 10,000 pennies, then the principal gets a pie in the face!  Have fun!)

-Show your students some facts on your smartboard by going to  We want them to know where their money is going to.  One of the best places on planet Earth by our calculations!

-When done collecting money, sometime in early to mid March, convert your loose change into a cashier’s check made payable to “St. Jude”.  Just swing by your closest Regions Bank, and they will help you!
