Happy New Year! The theme for the month of January is...Random Acts of Kindness!!
On a different note, we thought we'd start out the year with a year long project that falls under the Extra category. Today we're making something called a Changepot. The Changepot idea was started by a family who began collecting all of the dollar bills and the change they found when they went for walks through the park, in the city, or on the beach. They then took all they collected and donated it to charity. The first 3 years of doing this resulted in 1032.46 dollars! So today's goal...and a goal for the rest of the year...is to collect all the change I find walking and put it in a changepot of my own! At the end of the year the charity it will be donated to will be decided. Also, if you look at the right sidebar you can see a count of how much we have found!
Here's the Changepot I made! (sorry the lighting is bad!):
