The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is calling all pennies! Once again, the WWF is conducting its "Pennies for the Planet" campaign, which encourages schoolchildren to donate their pennies for various WWF projects. This year, every penny raised will benefit WWF field projects in the Atlantic Forest of South America, the Miombo Woodlands of Southern Africa, and the Everglades of south Florida.

Free copies of this year's "Pennies for the Planet" posters are available by visiting pennies, or by writing to World Wildlife Fund, attn: Pennies for the Planet, 1250 24th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20037. The posters include instructions for how to participate in the campaign, along with activity ideas that link local conservation issues with international efforts to protect the planet's biodiversity. Donated pennies can be sent to WWF for the 2002/2003 campaign through August 31, 2003.

Students also can donate pennies directly to WWF at Coinstar [c] machines located in supermarkets. Simply follow the screen prompts on the machine to the section for charity donations. Enter the WWF charity code (8888) and the coins will be donated directly to the "Pennies for the Planet" campaign.
