Ch Ch Ch Change (is accepted)

Coinstar! – did you know that if you put your change in a Coinstar machine, you have the option of donating that money directly to LLS? There are over 13,000 Coinstar machines (most in supermarkets – go to to find a machine near you).

Collect your change (and anyone else’s - but you should probably ask them first). When you use the Coinstar machine, simply select the "donate" option at the beginning of the transaction and follow the on-screen prompts to select LLS as your non-profit organization of choice. Then pour in your change; the machine counts the coins, and then provides a tax-deductible receipt for the full value of the donation. Send a copy of the receipt to me and I’ll get credit toward my fundraising goal.

Easy! Plus Coinstar doesn’t charge their regular fee for nonprofit donations.
