Does loose change find its way to every surface of your home? To the linings of pockets, the bottoms of purses?
Especially the pennies. Those are just useless. They can’t be used in laundromats, parking meters, gumball machines…
Therefore, my partner and I have decided to start a penny harvest in our home. It was something my middle school did. I don’t recall actually participating, though I imagine I would have. We’ve set up a jar where we’ll deposit our pennies, and twice a year, we’ll make a donation to a charity or organization of our choosing.
The hardest part is deciding where to make the first donation. There are so many good causes we both care about. We also want to make sure the majority of what we give goes toward the actual cause.
If you have any suggestions, please share them, along with an explanation of why. Once we decide, I’ll post it here.
And because I promised I would, an update on my C25K progress: I’ve just completed week 2, with success (success being not falling down or throwing up). I can feel myself having an easier time of it with each repetition. Of course, once I feel like I’m improving, the program gets harder. Next week, I have to run for three minutes. I know that sounds like nothing to most of you, but I am ridiculously out of shape, and even when I was in the best shape of my life, I always got winded at the drop of a hat. So if I can do it… achievement.
