Thrift Store Wednesdays: bring in your pennies
pennies for tree-planting in Haiti. Collecting pennies is not a new idea, but there's an extra encouragement right now for people to dump in their stashed coins: Canada has minted its last one-cent coin, after figuring that it was costing a cent and a half to make each coin. Canadian pennies will soon be no more; cashiers will be rounding off to the nickel. So if you can't spend them--plant a tree with them!
