Put that spare change to use..
Our newest initiative, Change for Cheer, allows individuals, families, schools, companies, and clubs/organization to help support our mission by simply…collecting change. Make it a competition, place it at a business register, use it however you see fit to help support the cause.
STEP 1: Place an order for a Change for Cheer Box (you can order multiple).
STEP 2: We will mail you the box along with some information about the initiative and the organization.
STEP 3: When your box is filled or the collection is complete, mail us the proceeds.
