What happens when you ask cute kids to dig through a jar of cash and pull out bills featuring women?

What happens when you ask a bunch of cute kids to dig through a jar of cash and pull out the bills that feature women?

That's kind of a rhetorical question, right?


Because as we all know, they can't do it. Cold, hard cash is the ultimate boy's club.

It's time for change!

I'd say over eight decades is more than enough time to have lapsed since we put a new face on paper money. Let's shake things up in a meaningful way.

As one of the kids in the video says:

"Girls are just as important as boys! Oh my gosh!"

Want to make it happen?

An organization called Women on 20s is encouraging President Obama to put a woman on the 20-dollar bill, but they want to know which woman the public wants to see. For some background, it's not all that difficult to change the face on cash. Women on 20s explains it:

"Fortunately, it doesn't take a messy act of Congress to change a portrait on paper money. It requires an order from the Secretary of the Treasury. With the stroke of a pen, the President can direct the Treasury Secretary to make the change. President Obama already has publicly expressed an interest in featuring more women on our money. With at least 100,000 [signatures], we can get the President's ear. That's how many names it takes to petition the White House for executive action."

So let's make it happen! Look at this list of 15 candidates and vote for three. You just need to provide your name and email address. From those 15, the top three plus Cherokee Nation Chief Wilma Mankiller will move to the final round, where you can choose your favorite. Women on 20s will submit the winner to President Obama and encourage him ask the Treasury to make a change.

This really is something we can make happen.

Wanna see some cute kids who are just as dismayed as I am that there are no women on our paper cash? Watch this.

Don't forget to vote! It'll take two minutes. Wouldn't it be cool to be a part of a change like this?

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.

One little girl took pictures of her school lunches. The Internet responded — and so did the school.

If you listened to traditional news media (and sometimes social media), you'd begin to think the Internet and technology are bad for kids. Or kids are bad for technology. Here's a fascinating alternative idea.

Kids can innovate, create, and imagine in ways that are fresh and inspiring — when we "allow" them to do so, anyway. Despite the tendency for parents to freak out because their kids are spending more and more time with technology in schools, and the tendency for schools themselves to set extremely restrictive limits on the usage of such technology, there's a solid argument for letting them be free to imagine and then make it happen.

It's not a stretch to say the kids in this video are on the cutting edge. Some of the results he talks about in the video at the bottom are quite impressive.
