Pennies might be going the way of the dinosaur, but Ellen has some great ideas for what you can do with your old pennies if they become obsolete!

We saw your story on what to do with pennies if they are discontinued....
We are Arbor Vitae Woodruff Elementary school and we are celebrating the 60th anniversary of the 1953 Million Penny Parade that happened at our school. The million pennies helped fund the building of the first hospital in our area for a Doctor named Kate Newcomb.
Dr. Kate was featured on The Ralph Edwards Show "This is Your Life"
Pennies came from all over the country and world!
We are on a mission to repeat this awesome community service. The funds we raise will help support the Dr. Kate Museum in our community as well as a scholarship fund for AV-W graduates and other community based learning at our school through the Arbor Vitae Woodruff Education Foundation.
Our elementary school students are working hard to get the word out and we have even made a few videos to share our mission.
Now you know what to do with the pennies...send them our way..postage paid of course ;) or you could always hand deliver them!
or....you could help us reenact the Ralph Edwards Show on your set, it would be a blast,
and our students and community would love it!
Please visit www.avw.k12.wi.us or avwef.org for more information.

Hi Ellen,

Love.. love .. love your show. If I didn't have you to watch while I work out at the club I guess I wouldn't. Anyway the reason that I am contacting you is that our school Arbor Vitae Woodruff Elementary is trying to collect a million pennies. This happened 60 years ago and we are hoping to duplicate it. A little history 60 years ago it was decided to collect a million of something. The school ended up deciding on collecting a million pennies. This money went towards building the first hospital in our area, Howard Young Medical Center. Now our school like many other schools is in financial need, and we have partnered with The Howard Young Foundation and we are trying to collect a million pennies before Memorial Day weekend. All money would go towards education, the school, and scholarships. We are inviting you to join us in the Northwoods and help us meet our goal. Hope to hear from you soon.
