Penny Experiment Beginning

I pick up coins. That includes pennies. I’ve even written articles in the past about how I have a hobby of picking up coins and the best places to find them.

There are many people that believe that picking up pennies is a waste of time and that they have no worth. I know this because I’ve seen a lot of people pass pennies on the ground without a second thought. I’ve seen people drop pennies on the ground and decide that it’s not worth the effort to pick them up. I’ve even seen people throw away pennies.

I am not one of those people. I believe that it’s possible to take a penny, use creativity, imagination and hard work, and turn that one cent into something that’s far greater than it may first appear. It is with this in mind that I am attempting to take a 1968 penny I found on the way to a local coffee shop and turn it into $1 million dollars worth of food for local food banks. I thank you for joining me in this journey to learn the possibilities of what can be achieved with a single penny.

    Jeffrey, I think you need to offer an explantion of where to donate the pennies (or other coins, donations)- whether it is a concerted or individual effort. It is certainly a question people will ask. Thanks!
