HOW TO HELP
Currently, A Penny A Day can not handle donation transactions, although we are hoping to support such services in the future. In the meantime, you can contribute directly to your favorite organization using the A Penny A Day program (described in our “Get Involved” packet (PDF: 75k)).
You can make a difference today by committing to a certain dollar (or cent) amount each day (payable according to a monthly cycle) to the organization(s) of your choice. To show the organization your intent, as well as to spread the word of the A Penny A Day program to a wider number of charitable organizations, just print and submit the Pledge Coupons (contained in the packet) alongside your payments.
Also, to volunteer to help with A Penny A Day or to include your charitable group in our service, please write us at [email protected]. (All correspondence will be treated as personal, private communication, and your information will never be sold or given to a third party.)
