Design for Change

pennies As Canada is phasing out the penny and it will no longer be distributed from the Royal Canadian Mint, it makes ‘cents’ to put that spare change to a worthy cause.

Ten million pennies, or $100,000 is the cost equivalent for building supplies that the Habitat for Humanity can use to build a safe, affordable home for one family. With the ultimate goal of collecting 690 million pennies, the Habitat can build an additional 69 homes across Canada

The Greater Vancouver Habitat for Humanity and ReStore locations will be accepting penny donations. Click here for more information on the Habitat, or here, for the location nearest you.
