Nickel War

Use Your Change to Change Lives

Nickel War is a fun, competitive way to raise awareness and money for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta simply by collecting spare change.

FriendsThere are many ways you can organize a Nickel War with a rival school or organization:

  • Stir up competition between homerooms, sports teams, grade levels, scout troops or other groups.
  • Organize a competition for a week leading up to an athletic event with your rival school, such as the homecoming football game.
  • Allow students to wear jeans or their favorite T-shirt or hat on a designated day in exchange for donations. 
  • Challenge your rival school to see who can donate the most concession stand proceeds for the season.
