  1. What a great way to support not just one, but several different charitable organizations! There are so many organizations that need support. This is a great project that illustrates every little bit helps!

    1. Thank you so much! I hope it continues to grow! Hopefully we’ll have a better way to donate online soon so more alumni can get involved!

  2. This is a wonderful idea. I am a staff member at BU, and I will be stopping by the mailbox to donate my extra change. This is not just for students!

    1. What a great question! Project Mailbox is for the students by the students. Students choose the charities that our box raises money for and students are the ones contributing. Students are also behind the management, the advertising and marketing, and the street teaming. Also, 100% of the money that goes in the box goes to the Charity of the Month. We don’t pay the collectors with the box money and we never will. I guess we’re still just a donation box, but we’re **your** donation box.

  3. Donating extra coins in my pocket could help others, what a great idea! BU really provides opportunities for students to use their imagination to positively feed back to society.
