Pennies for Peace

You may remember my post about Greg Mortensen's book "Three Cups of Tea" from a few month's ago. During Greg's first few years in Pakistan, students attending an elementary school in Wisconsin started a program called Pennies for Pakistan and raised 62,340 pennies to help Greg build a school in Pakistan. The program has evolved and is now called Pennies for Peace. To read more about the program and become a part of it, you can visit

On another note, Greg Mortensen will be speaking for BYU Devotional on Tuesday, October 27 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM. It will be held at the Marriott Center on BYU Campus and it is open to the public. If you're close by, I definitely recommend attending!
