Got pennies? We want 'em!

Starting March 11, the Foundation Fighting Blindness will be collecting 

1 MILLION PENNIES for 100 DAYS to support sight-saving research!


All proceeds from our Penny Drive will support the Foundation Fighting Blindness, Canada’s largest charity for sight-saving research. Funds raised will help Canadian scientists find treatments and cures for blinding eye diseases.


We are looking for enthusiastic individuals and groups who want to make a difference and bring hope to people with vision loss. It’s a simple, fun and easy way to get involved and support a great cause. Anyone can participate! You can collect donations at your school, office, home, gym, sporting centre, place of worship or even on your street. Make it a great event for the entire community. After you sign up, you’ll receive a welcome package with tools to assist you!
