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.
