Saving For Sight
Ask your child’s school to host a Saving for Sight Day. Make a flyer encouraging each child to bring in loose change from their house to be donated to Prevent Blindness. Encourage the school’s math classes to assist with counting, predicting, and rolling the change. This is a great way to involve the entire school. You can hold this event multiple times. You can even ask five to ten of your friends to save their change for a month.
