"Pasta for Pennies"

Okay, so this post isn't about crafting... but I need your help!

Instead, it's about donating!  I am a middle school ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher; I teach English to children whose first language is anything other than English.  Right now our school is having a fundraiser for "Pasta for Pennies".  This program is where students bring in spare change and raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  In return, the classroom that raises the most money gets a fully catered pasta party from Olive Garden.  

The thing is, my students never win anything!  Since we are one of the smaller classes in the school, we have a disadvantage when it comes to "competitions".  "Pasta for Pennies" started last week and my kids have raised $287.00 so far!  We are currently in first place!  They are so excited and want to win so badly!  We are trying to come up with creative ways to raise money... today we sold roses with handmade tags for Valentine's Day!  And, we only have 2 weeks left!

If you have any spare change you would like to give, ANY amount, would go to a great cause.  100% of the money will go to "Pasta for Pennies" and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  

Will you please help us?

Thank you!
