I think that's a great idea, Ima. I like the update idea...it'd be kinda cool to see pictures every so often of everyone's jars....or what do you think Ima?

Macho...do you have any thoughts?

Oh my! Here we go!
I don't know whether to call that an oxymoron or an open invitation. Give us your best shot, bro.

I'll take pics of the penny jar around here.

Macho,
John and are in, I have been saving change for years in a cup, it is now the RiderDown.org fund. I'll contact our shop and see if I can put a jug there with a sign on it. They are really cool people and should okay it. I have been buying RM's there since 1976 so we know each other. This is a great idea Macho, thanks for the prod.

Bill

Great Idea Macho!

I'm in too. However, I won't be sending my pennies. They banks here will count them for you, and give you cash, so long as you don't have "trash can's" full.

For those of you feeling generous, you could always add nickles & Dimes too. You will be amazed at the amount of $$ you can come up with.

Now all I need is a lock for my jar. Seems the boss and her little helpers are always digging into my jar, which is why I didn't add Quarters (I never have any... I put them in there, but some how they turn into nickles, dimes and pennies within seconds ).

Setting something at the local shop is a great idea too. I'll certainly hit my shop up too.

Char - I am in - I have bunches of pennies at my house and office - and I will help you collect next year. WON'T COUNT, BUT will help you collect. I guess the bank will count them for you right? Love you guys and see Mark does have a couple of good ideas even if he did steal them from the girls.

Mama...if you don't bring the pennies down, guess we'll have to come up and get them.

I will check and see if the bank will count them for me as the time gets closer. If not, like I said..the kids can have a math lesson.

And yeah...Macho has some good ideas...you done a good job with him. Love you.

Sis,
If I know you like I suspect I do you won't refuse any donationThe right person for the job has volunteered to act a coordinator and you will get my support 100%.

Remember this fact, In Alabama the elementary school students did a penny drive to get the funding for moving and permenantly locating the U.S.S. Alabama to Mobile as a memorial and museum in the early 1960's No state government funds had to be used to accomplish this feat. I imagine a group like ATM can do pretty well with this drive for RiderDown.org.
