  1. Select a cause or nonprofit in your area in need of service.
  2. Rather than simply asking for donations, set up a competition where change is key.
  3. First, establish teams. Typically, class levels or individual homerooms serve as teams.
  4. Next, elect student leaders who will be responsible for collecting change. There should be one student leader per team.
  5. Next, begin the penny wars!
  6. For each cent donated in the form of coins, 1 point is added to a team total.
  7. On the other hand, if paper money is given to an opposing team, one point is deducted for each cent.
  8. Finally, the team with the highest point total at the end of the week wins!
