Standing on its own, one penny means little, but six million pennies means everything. That was the message area Jewish groups are pushing across.

The project's goal is to raise six million pennies, or $60,000. The fundraising efforts are to commemorate the six million Jews who perished during the Holocaust. In return, the money raised will directly fund Holocaust education programs throughout Rockford area.

To put the Holocaust's atrocities in another perspective, the six million Jews murdered by Nazi Germany is the equivalent of two seasons of sellouts at Wrigley Field.
