We Create Change -- And You Can Too


Free The Children's We Create Change Campaign is giving the penny a proper send off with Canada's largest penny drive. Collect pennies to support Free The Children's Water Initiative and help us reach our goal to provide a sustainable source of clean water to 100,000 people around the world.

Because water effects everything. It can be a barrier to education for girls who walk long and sometimes treacherous paths to collect water instead of attending school. In developing communities, 80 per cent of illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation.

So click here to learn more about how to launch your own penny drive. Your change amounts to global impact.
