Reflections from a Community Coach
On a recent Friday afternoon I was invited to sit around the table with an impressive group of handpicked leaders. I witnessed them carefully narrow down the list of causes they would support, from feeding the homeless to taking care of abandoned animals to helping autistic children. As I held back tears of pride, I said to myself, this is one of the many wonderful things about Common Cents. These lessons could not have been learned from a textbook.
Common Cents’ 2013 Run for Change! campaign is now underway and a date is set: the 3rd annual run, walk and rally celebrating the work of over 600 Penny Harvest Schools in the greater New York City area will commence on June 8th.
Across New York City, schools and students are dedicating this year's Penny Harvest to recovery efforts after Hurricane Sandy. Hundreds of schools have already re-named the year-long program “Hurricane Harvest.”
Common Cents announced today the online release of a book created by thousands of New York City students reflecting on the meaning of September 11 in their lives and pledging service to make a better world.
