Honey Bear Bottle Campaign

Do you have spare change laying around? Do you have a work organization that you can do fundraiser type donation collections to? Do you have both? Awesome! There is a way that you can help pregnant women, newborns and entire families by donating some spare change and/or having a penny war at work!
The Hannah Center is currently holding a fundraiser event called Honey Bear Bottle Campaign. The link with official information is here http://www.hannahcenter.org/change-bear-campaign/ but I think it will be fun to talk a little bit about a work related penny war! Not to mention, this is a wonderful way to serve our Lord by serving others and tossing in just a little bit of competition with co-workers.
 
My oldest son, Noah, told me about these penny wars that they do in school, and I thought it was a great idea that could possibly go well with this campaign. 
 
Ok, the way a penny war works is by dividing into teams. Most likely your organization will have teams already, whether it be HR, day shift, night shift, accounting, etc. and each team gets a jar or two. Your team earns points by the amount of silver coins in the jar (nickels, dimes, and quarters) BUT your team loses points for any penny dropped in. For example, I toss in two quarters in my own jar and a coworker tosses in 100 pennies. I am now -50 points. I gained 50 from the quarters, but then I lost 100 points from the pennies. The winner is the team with the most points at the end of your fundraiser period. The prize can be anything your office agrees on and the time frame can be two weeks, one week, 3 days…however long you feel would still be fun for everyone. This is just an idea if you want a way to get it in your work place and have a little fun with it. At the end of your penny war, bring the jars back to the Hannah Center!
 
It’s a wonderful ministry for the Hannah Center and you are able to be a BIG part of that!
 
Are you only able to add in your spare change? That works just as well as the penny wars! Any donation is welcome and it is like 2 Corinthians 9:7 says, “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” Of course we aren’t tithing to a church with this fundraiser, but we are giving to the Lord’s children who are in need of a little assistance.
