NICKEL from NICOLE
Saving Lives One Nickel at a Time
Hello, I am an incoming senior at Donna North High School in Donna, Texas. On campus, I, along with a fellow peer are the "figureheads" of our school and community. We are called the Indian Spirit and Princess. With these highly prestigious positions we believe we will be able to reach a larger community and bring awareness of such a beautiful project like Nickle for Nicole. I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff LeGrow in person at a student council convention and have been wanting to take part in his project for two years. With the Nickle cards I hope to make an empowering statement and make our community aware of such a grand topic. We have 2100 students on campus. I hope to hear back from you all soon and I look forward to taking part in this project.
Hello! I am the Wall Middle School Student Council sponsor. Recently, my student council officers attended the Texas Annual Middle School Conference in San Marcos and spoke with someone about Nickel from Nicole. They were inspired!! They came to me immediately wanting to hand out these cards to our high school students. They said, “How cool would it be for us to inspire them to drive more safely!” I agree. It could be very cool. They are currently preparing a small presentation to give to the high school students here at Wall. They would then like to hand out Nickel from Nicole cards to each of them. We would need @400 cards. Would that be possible? Approximately how long until the cards where shipped here? Thank you in advance, and please let me know if there is any additional information you need from us.

I am the Student Council sponsor at Splendora High School in Splendora Texas. Each year my council chooses an organization we would like to help support by making a monetary donation. We like to encourage other high schools to help support those organizations as well. We do this by making donations to our chosen organizations in the name of our opposing school for each Friday night football game during that school year. My Council would love to spread the word about Nickel from Nicole by giving each of our rival schools 1,000 of your cards for their own council to take back to their own school and share your message. We will donate $600 to your organization at the end of August or early September. Would you be able to send us 12,000 cards for us to share with those schools? Our first football game is fast approaching and we would love to be able to start with that game. Thank you.
What is the fee for a one-hour assembly to speak with our Upper School kids about Nicole's story? We have approximately 375 kids in grades 9-12.
In April, I attended the TASC event and visited your booth. As part of a joint project for the community, our student council would like to assemble Nickle cards and hand them out. We have 2160 students ( high school and middle school). I would love to have a copy of the short presentation, so we can show during our lunch. What is our next step?

Dear LeGrow Family, I am the administrative representative for Deer Park High School's DRIVE program, which helps to remind students about safe driving. I heard about your program from Teens in the Driver’s Seat. The nickel and card would make a fantastic lesson during our advisory period for our juniors and seniors who drive each day. So many times, reckless driving is witnessed by many, including in our parking lot. We have approximately 3100 10th-12th graders and would love to get these for all our students. Please let me know if this is possible. I appreciate your consideration. The message you are sharing with the world is making a difference!
I am the student council advisor at Smithson Valley High School in Spring Branch, TX outside of San Antonio. I heard about the Nickel from Nicole program when I was at the TASC advisors’ conference in the spring. Next week, March 9-10, our school will be having our Shattered Dreams program that our FACS organization runs. In speaking with them, we thought that passing out Nickel cards to our students at the assembly could help to enforce the message. We know this is kind of last minute, and don't know the turnaround time, but if possible, we'd like to order cards. We will have up to 1000 students in the assembly. We'd like to get between 500 and 1000 pre-assembled cards, if possible. If the request is too late, we understand and will keep it in mind for next year. We appreciate what you're doing to get teens to think before they get behind the wheel. Thank you!
The Red Oak High School HADDIT (Hawks Against Destructive Decisions Inspiring Teens) organization supported by Project Success, participated in the Nickel from Nicole campaign. Students attached post cards on student driver's windshields at ROHS. This nickel is to be placed on the dashboard of your car to remind you to drive safely all the time. HADDIT is a group of students at Red Oak High School taking a stand against the dangers of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and other destructive decisions. Sponsors for the group are Sgt. Lori Guarnero and Charmianne Womack from the ROISD Police Dept.
Hi! I'm the Special Projects coordinator for The Woodlands High School Student Council. I'm interested in spreading awareness for safe driving. I heard about Nickel From Nicole from a friend who tried to do this last year, but didn't have enough time. We plan to distribute the cards during either all lunches or advisory. We have plenty of people in student council to help assemble the cards, and we have roughly 3000+ students. My school does not have a safe driving program, but I would love to promote safe driving, because there have been terrible tragedies due to car accidents. I am planning to do this the last week of November, so November 28th- December 2nd. Thank you so so much!!
Hello, I am part of Student Council at Porter High School. My student council group and I are interested in ordering the "Nickel" cards, to be able to promote safe driving to students that drive to school and parents that drive their children to school.. We will be needing 2,100 cards and we will greatly appreciate it if the cards could already be pre-assembled. Also the PowerPoint will really help us get the story across the school; we would show the PowerPoint during our school announcements. Finally we would need the cards before January 31st to start getting the message across campus. Thank You so much and if you have any questions feel free to email me. Have a great day.
Hi, I am the Student Body President from Hamshire-Fannett High School and would love if we could have some of the Nickel cards to hand out to students on our campus. I received a Nickel card at State Convention last year, which has been placed in my car, and every time someone asks me about it I share them Nicole's story. I want to spread Nicole's story not only to the passengers in my car, but would like to start an awareness program with the cards to my whole school as well (9th-12th grade). I was wanting to be able to give one to each student so 600--but if that isn't possible then we will take as many as we can get. Our StuCo can assemble them if that means we can get them quicker! Please get back to me with information on how to get the cards. Thank you so much!
Hi there Mr. LeGrow!
I met you at the TASC Middle Level Conference Last Weekend!
We are so moved by Nicole's story and I think it is a WONDERFUL idea for our Jr. High kids to build and distribute the cards to share their message of Driver Safety to their older siblings, teachers, and parents!
We have about 2100 students at our High School. Although we are aware there is no charge for the cards and materials, what would the overall cost to your organization be to send that quantity of materials to us?
We would like to try to help cover the costs of those materials that we would use to send this message out to our school family.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Hello, I am the Student Council President at Infinity Early College HS. I heard about Nickel from Nicole at the TASC state conference. I am very interested in your program since a lot of our students are drivers and this will be a perfect way to raise awareness to drive safely, as well as to remember the consequences of not doing so. I would like to build 165 Nickel Cards and integrate the message into our DASH program. Thank you.
