"Every little bit counts." You hear this phrase all the time and probably take the words for granted. Well, Project Mailbox took that phrase to heart. They set-up a vintage mailbox on the for people to toss in their spare change. At the end of every month they give that money to a different charity that you all vote on (check their every month to put in your vote). Believe it or not, it can really add up when everybody gives a little. They've even done some of the math for you: 16,000 students * 25 cents a week = $16,000 a month to give to a charity that you choose. What if everyone who walked by the mailbox (not just students) threw in a quarter. . . you'll have to do that math on your own.
We think Project Maibox does a great job of showing that you don't have to be a millionaire to make a difference. It might not feel like it, but your spare change can change the world!
