I had an idea a few weeks ago. The idea: Take a mason jar, and put pennies in it. Watch as, over time, the jar fills. Take pictures of it as it fills. Use it as a metaphor for “every little bit counts.” (As in, even a seemingly insurmountable goal can be accomplished step by little step, and every little action we take DOES add up.)
So I started doing that.
Then I thought: why not donate the pennies? (Whenever I’m done.)
The cause I chose: Baddeck Community Market. Reason: It’s run by volunteers who spend their own free time organizing this truly vibrant and important marketplace for local products, that has become really important in our local food economy.
If you have pennies you want to donate, let me know. I’ve got lots of mason jars.
