Elisabeth is starting to receive penny counts from Girl Scouts across the country.

Brownie Troop 1475 from Yorktown Heights, NY collected

2,118 pennies!

What an awesome job girls! Thank you for your support and for being a sister to every Girl Scout! See their picture to the left.

Daisy Troop 60570 from Western New York did an Amazing Daisy collection of

10,500 pennies!!!

And from what we hear, every scout in the troop participated! Thank you so much helping Elisabeth help Japan!

Elisabeth also received a package from the  Girl Scouts – Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas Council. They collected 1,932 pennies (she was also very excited about the birthday card and council patch!) Thank you so much for your help and kind birthday wishes!

We finally counted the pennies from our own LEO service unit meeting!

9,190 pennies!

Thank you to all the troops that contributed right here at home!

Finally from Elisabeth Grandma Bobbi and Papa, she received

3,626 pennies!

Thats a total of 17,866 pennies, bringing the grand total to 

136,185 pennies!

This morning Elisabeth did a thank you announcement at school thanking all the students, teachers and staff for their huge support for Elisabeth and her project. Next week we pick up all the origami paper cranes that the 4th and 5th graders have been making in art class. During Elisabeth speech, there was a surprise annoucement that Elisabeth was selects as a winner of the the Palm Beach County Character Counts! program, for her penny project! Congrats Elisabeth!
