?fundraiser
« on: October 27, 2012, 03:18:33 PM »

How many of us keep a change jar?  I do, and mine usually makes around 30-40$ a month. Between now and next December if even 10 of us took our change jars and cashed them in and donated the money to Tighar, That would be a chunk of change. Maybe $4000 if only 10 of us did it, Think how much more if more people got involved. Something to think about.  ;)

I see the point you're making.  And it’s a good thought.  But, wow - you're  collected change is 30 - 40 a month!  For me, that would be pretty heavy into cash-use.  I'm a plastic user myself - I don't even write a check to pay the plastic.  (In fact, I'm secretly a little annoyed when people in front of me in a store take so much time to write out a check.) Of coarse I carry a little cash for emergencies and to pay for something small.  Thinking about my life before plastic - that goes back a ways. My first experience with a credit card was those limited-use gasoline  cards that had the embossed information that created carbon copies that you had to sign.   That time would be around 1960.  Anyway, I had a plastic change container that I squeezed to open it.  The procedure was to try to take out to pay what was put in the last time.  I know, you’ll say  that’s  sort of the same as taking time to write a check - better to just get out another bill ( or note, depending where you live).   ;D

Oh I use plastic, but keep  a 20 around, my husband takes  a few dollars to work with him, so there is always change. We give the kids money to go here and there and ask for change back....it adds up.
