To raise awareness about Amman Imman and keep up the excitement for A Walk for Water, Sophie is organizing a Penny War fundraiser. The Garrison Forest Penny War will start on the Saturday before A Walk for Water and last for a week, providing an opportunity for competitive fun and contribution.
Sophie explains that a Penny War raises funds by setting up a competition between grades:
Each grade has a jug where they put pennies and other coins. For each penny the grade gets a point and for each silver coin the grade loses as many points as that coin is worth. This encourages a junior, let's say, to put a quarter in the freshman jug and vice-versa.I did a little research to learn more about Penny War. It sounds like a lot of fun and a great way to raise awareness about a cause, get everyone involved, and raise money.
