I Think I May Need To Start A Coin Collection


May 9th, 2009

Our school raised money to help build a clean water well for a school in Africa through charity:water. i’m pretty proud of our kids. They collected $180.84 (and it’s probably closer to $200 because I haven’t gotten the money from two classes). It doesn’t sound like much money but every little bit helps and for our school, raising this much money is impressive.

Anyway, Today I took all the coins to the bank and put them through the coin counter. Many of the coins were rejected because they weren’t American money. I’ve now got coins from El Salvador, Mexico, England (before they went to Euros), Europe (after they started using Euros), Canada, Kenya, Somalia and a few others that I haven’t identified yet.
