Pennies for Pakistan

Dear Editor:

Hi, my name is Joel Ordonez. I’m a sixth grader in the middle school in Glenwood Springs.

I believe that the world should collect money to donate to build schools in Pakistan. The first reason we should donate is because kids in Pakistan don’t have school. The second reason we should collect money is with an education the kids will have a better life. The last reason should do this is the kids will learn and have better jobs when they grow up.

So, I think you should collect pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and some dollars. Send it to Pennies for Peace and they will help make a school for kids who need an education. Go online and visit
