As a way of increasing the amount of money I give, today’s small change is to put all of my small change (anything less than 10p) from my purse or from a transaction into the collection pot at the till. If there’s no collection pot at one till, the next one gets twice as much.
I probably won’t notice a few coppers disappearing from my purse, but as they say, every penny counts and over the month it should add up.
It’s not a grand gesture, but it’s not supposed to be. It’s an achievable small change of habbit that is part of one big lifestyle change.
