Bountiful Jar


How it works:

A little bit of money can add up to a lot of help. Perfect for individuals and families who may not be able to write a check but who can save their coins and dollars each day. A year of saving a dollar a day in the Bountiful Jar will provide the nutritional supplemental needs for about 4 children for an entire year. This is a great family activity that teaches kids and teenagers how they can help those in need who are far away.

How to create the Bountiful Jar:

Download the art and print on 3 1/2" x 5" shipping labels such as these seen here. Or print on your own paper and glue or tape to jar.

Save $100 a Month challenge:

What are some ways you can save money? Brainstorm some ideas of ways to save a few dollars here and there, such as making food at home instead of eating out or walking instead of driving, then use these handy slips to record ways you saved money and add them to your jar! At the end of the month donate the amount you saved along with any change you've added along the way. Remember, $100 can feed a child for a whole year!

How to distribute:

Invite relatives, neighbors, friends, co-workers, etc. to participate! 

You can also create centerpieces for events featuring items and pictures from various countries and the jar with it's label like one of our volunteers did at their wedding reception below:

The sky is the limit, and we'd love to hear what you've done with the jar!
