pennies in jar for your team. Silver coins & dollars subtract points, so put those in your opponent's jar.
At the end of the month we will count it up and determine a winner. The
winning team will get an awesome prize. This is the first of our "kids
helping kids" fundraiser. All monies collected will go to support the
children at the mission in Liberia.
