Penny Power

Penny Power Makes CENTS!

Every little bit counts in running a coin drive to help support local Ontario kids with physical disabilities. Even pennies can make miracles happen!

Penny Power for Easter Seals Kids has raised over $850,000! This could not have been accomplished without the enthusiastic support of local schools, their staff, students and parents across the Province of Ontario.

Penny Power for Easter Seals Kids is a coin drive with a purpose that educates school children about

the value of one…the power of many.

The Penny Power program asks schools to organize a coin drive to help support children with physical disabilities and their families. Students are asked to bring coins to their class where they are collected in a container supplied by Easter Seals.

How can my school get involved?

Penny Power is a fun and easy campaign to run. Simply contact the Easter Seals office in your community and a representative will be happy to drop off a Penny Power kit. The kit includes comprehensive class curriculum guide, penny buckets for each participating classroom, and tattoos or bookmarks for the student. Schools can choose to count and roll the con as a part of their curriculum (we supply the coin rolls), or we will collect and count it – whichever approach works best for you!

How will my school’s participation help our community?

Proceeds from this program will support the purchase of mobility, accessibility and communication equipment for children with physical disabilities in your community and across Ontario.

Who will count the pennies?

Volunteers will look after the actual counting and rolling of pennies. However, schools and classrooms are welcome to help roll their own donations.

This experience is a wonderful example of kids helping kids, allowing students the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of other children and youth who live daily with a physical disability. Every student can make a difference and every penny can make a difference. Penny Power makes CENTS!
