Take The Penny Pledge

 

Zach was a coin collector and pennies were his specialty.

 

By wearing pennies around our necks, on our key chains, or on our backpacks, we have a physical reminder to reach out, to be kind, and to show people that they are not alone in this struggle. Zach’s pennies serve as visual symbols to prompt active listening, start bold conversations, and recognize our own mental health needs. Pennies are often discounted as insignificant. Our pledge is to remember that every cent counts.

The Pledge

‚Äč

By wearing this penny I pledge to:

 

Reach out to the kid in the corner.

Say hello, smile, ask where they've been

 

Be aware of my own mental health

It's okay to not be okay. Realize there is

strength in asking for help.

 

Be a safe and caring person

that others can talk to. 

Be a friend. Be a shoulder to lean on. Listen.

Order Your Pennies

To take the Penny Pledge, fill out your name, address, and tell us the quantity you need in the message, and we will rush your pennies to you so you can wear them proudly!
