Roots of Peace's Penny Campaign

With more than 30 years of business experience as an attorney, international business strategist, and consultant, Graham R. Taylor currently serves as the principal of Marquis Advisory Group. Outside of his professional life, Graham R. Taylor supports numerous charitable organizations, including Roots of Peace.

A charitable organization that serves war-ravaged areas, Roots of Peace focuses on restoring economic vitality by creating business and other livelihood opportunities for people living in these regions. One such program Roots of Peace uses to accomplish this is The Penny Campaign.

The Penny Campaign is a fundraising program that Roots of Peace promotes each year to help children learn the importance of understanding the world beyond their own borders by contributing to others in need. The fundraiser is organized by youth and focuses on collecting small change that will then be used as much-needed funds to repair education and recreational facilities in countries that have been ravaged by war.

A member of a school’s faculty or administrative staff acts as a “school coordinator” for a program by serving as the official contact liaison between the school and Roots of Peace. They then implement the program by creating necessarily promotional items, including the collection cans, press releases, and photos.

After formally announcing the campaign to the entire study body in a presentation or assembly setting, the coordinator helps teachers find unique ways to offer an educational spin to the fundraiser. Once the campaign is over, the change is collected from all cans, converted to bills and then mailed to Roots of Peace as a donation, where 100 percent of funds are used on relief projects.
