equation found on this page in order to see
how wide you have to go.
(Oh yeah, take a
picture and make sure you are in it!,
then e-mail
it to us.)

Help us Keep the Current Record Growing:

We will add your pennies to the existing
penny pyramid structure if you drop off
your pennies at one of our current drop
off sites!        

or, you can be recognized for each  
pyramid built no mater what the size if  
the equivalent amount is donated
online.   (Again! ,take a picture and make sure
you are
in it! )

With either choice, we will keep an online
record of everyone who has participated
and if you dropped off pennies we will  
even note what floor and row they were
used in!

So, send us your photos, stories, and pennies,
we're in the process of developing a page just
for you and your friends to show off your work!

Colorectal Cancer is the #2 cancer killer of men and women in the U.S. There are
approximately 145,000 new cases of colon cancer and 56,000 deaths in the US
alone  each year.  Just one simple screening can help prevent a lifetime of pain
and suffering.

It is one of the projects goal to build momentum and awareness on new
technologies such as
capsule endoscopy (PillcamTM), and all other types of
screening and testing that can catch this disease at a very treatable stage.  Our
vision of "Collect, Build, Donate" through  penny collection drives will help pave
the way in getting this word out.  This is just one way we will be  putting our
smallest  denomination to work!
