Pennies For Peace

Tomorrow my son's class is hosting a bake sale at their school to raise money for "Pennies for Peace". They are an organization that raises money to build schools for children in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Although a penny doesn't buy much in North America, there it can buy a pencil and enable a child to learn to write.

So in preparation for the bake sale, my son and I baked some chocolate peppermint pinwheel cookies and some millionaire shortbread.

If you have a chance take a look at the website Pennies For Peace and read the book "Three Cups of Tea". It's a wonderful read!


  1. Those look yummy! I bet they will be a hot seller. I love Three Cups of Tea. My son's school did the Pennies for Peace too. Now that I think about it, it might be a great summer activity for my boys.

  2. I'm sure your yummy goodies will fly off the shelves! What a great cause!
