WITH EVERY PURCHASE YOU PROVIDE EMPLOYMENT & OPPORTUNITY   FOR A INDIVIDUAL IN NEED

Within 365 day we have employed over 105 homeless youth in LA.

Over 30% of foster youth become homeless by the age of 20

Every purchase provides a mentor and long term employment, preventing that 30% of becoming a statistic.

Why A PENNY?

Each penny uniquely represents individuals in need. In America its very hard to do anything with a penny but with millions of pennies it creates much more opportunity. With every purchase you donate 10,000 pennies for opportunity and purpose towards youth adults around the world.

Each PENNY has the name of a youth adult in Los Angeles. We chose a penny because many of us walk pass a penny and never think about the value of a penny story. Where have they been? Where are they going, and what they where made for.

It’s time to remind us the value of a PENNY and the value of our future and help our young adults around the world. Many of the youth we work with came from all areas of life.
