If Wishes Were Pennies - 2001


"Jars of Hope"

Michelle Maley, a second-grader at Rosalia, Wash., had only one wish: that her cousin Bryan Maley not have to suffer from lymphoma. Her wish came true, and then some. Students at Rosalia's elementary school pitched in and saved more than $200 in pennies for Bryan.

But Bryan's health grew better as the piles of pennies grew larger, and he felt the money could be better spent at the Shriner's Hospital in Spokane, where he had received treatment.

So Wednesday, the Rosalia second-graders traveled to Spokane and presented Lee McGuire of the Whitman County Shrine Club with the money.
