Penny Wars (at school or work) - Set up various jars. Then, label them using each team or group’s name. If a donor places coins in a jar, that team gets points for each cent collected. However, if someone puts a dollar or other paper money in a jar, that counts as negative points. For instance, a dollar bill equals negative 100 points against that team. Encourage donors to put coins in their team’s jar while putting dollars in their competitors’ jars!
