Some nice emails today.
There were congratulations from readers in Australia and China.
There were great stories as well:
“I have been reading your blog; we are sooo encouraged by the stories. Every year in June, we raise money and donate it to HOPE Worldwide in Mexico City. So far, the money raised by our church members has built a health clinic. This penny collecting is something our young son can participate in. We want to start our own penny jar to help others. Thank you for your inspiration. I will start praying for coins to keep appearing so that we can be a light in this world.”
A co-worker said her granddaughter and friends are now collecting coins.
One reader said: “Congratulations on reaching day 365 and thank you for sharing your inspirational stories. Your gift to the Salvation Army was heartwarming. It is one of the organizations that reaches so many needy people. I sent a contribution a while ago but am going to make a donation again today in honor of PennyFinders.”
Back to work today. The students are gone for the Holidays and many of the campus employees have taken the week off. The eating establishments are closed and the vending machines don’t get much traffic. Slim pickings.
The student study room was deserted and the floors had been cleaned. All except for one shiny little silver spot under one of the table leg cross bars.
Doc has Penny Fever and can’t go a day without his fix. He cruised the parking lots and found HIS dime. Today the score was tied!
Today’s Total: 2 dimes
Penny Fever is spreading and people are getting inspired to “Gift a Penny”.
