Please Excuse This Commercial Interruption

Since it’s the beginning of the New Year, just like the diet commercials, I want to put in my plug. It's for “Pennies from Heaven”. “What’s that?” you say. Oh, just a little something I came up with awhile back. You can go to the Homepage of the and read all about it. We’re not asking for big bucks here. Just pennies! It takes me about 3 or 4 months to fill my Pringles can with what adds up to $13. Now I just took my filled can yesterday to my local Commerce Bank where they have their nifty machine that anyone can use and dumped in my change. (You can win a little prize if you guess close to the amount.)* This last time I saved not only pennies but nickels as well, just for the heck of it. I had an even $20+! Now I’ll send off my check to ERD – Episcopal Relief and Development, (where you can choose how you want your donation to be used) being sure to write “Pennies from Heaven” in the memo.

*P.S. – I had guessed $15 but the girl that had come over to the machine to ask if I needed any assistance told me to take one of the red plastic “C” banks they had right there. I imagine they’re really there for the kids, but hey, I’m a kid at heart! [. . . and if anyone out there gets one of these filled with pennies email me and let me know how much it holds. :)]
