Worlds Largest Penny Pyramid World Record
Worlds Largest Penny Pyramid built by Marcelo Bezos to raise awareness for colorectal cancer and the screening process. Screening Saves Lives!
The Penny Pyramid Project and the President of Rainbow Children’s Academy have announced a collaboration and pilot program to establish what they hope will the first of many annual Penny Pyramid Collection Drives for charity.
It is estimated that in the State of Florida alone there are over http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/12000.html 7,624,378 households with an average count of 500 pennies in each. This number represents over 3.8 billion coins or 38,000,000 dollars in pennies that are out of circulation. It is the projects goal to tap into this hidden pool of coins as a financial resource to be used towards community improvements and charitable donations.
Elizabeth Bezos, President, Rainbow Children’s Academy, Hialeah, Fl,. “We are very excited at the prospect of getting our youngest minds involved and educated on the importance of community involvement.” It is our goal to have as many schools participating in the Penny Pyramid Collection Drive in order to truly make a financial impact in our community.”
This year’s inaugurative theme will be used to communicate the importance in Colorectal Cancer Awareness and the Screening process. Half of the proceeds raised during the drive will go to benefit programs directly involved in colorectal cancer research and awareness. The remaining half will go towards other charitable organizations in the immediate community that school directors and educators along with the student vote will be able to choose from and donate to.
Marcelo Bezos, founder of the Penny Pyramid Project, “Our Penny Pyramid Collection Drive is based on a new and interactive approach of “Collect, Build, Donate”TM. This initial event will be the first of many used to engage and introduce our young children to the important subject of community involvement and the great importance in supporting ongoing works of charity. The world record attempt will provide the kind of “cut through the clutter” focus that will help stimulate community awareness and involvement.”
