pennies for penny

pennyring1

the holidays are on the horizon and once again i find myself searching for the perfect gift to give to my loved ones.  after happening upon pennies for penny i will look no further.

the thomas family abruptly lost their 21 month old daughter penny in a tragic accident in 2012. in the days immediately following the accident, a community came together to help them in a dark time of desperation. within a few short hours, friends and strangers established and funded a project called “pennies for penny” to help defray big costs that the family had incurred.

“through this charitable act–and many, many others–we felt God’s love like a reassuring arm around us, holding us tightly, letting us know that all was not lost. a little more than a year later, we continue to be inspired by these acts of kindness. we can never match or repay them, but they changed us forever, just like our little penny did. love, family, connection, service, curiousity–these were the important things in life. and so, we committed ourselves to them again. we ache dearly for her each day, but the outpouring we felt from the world around us following the accident reminds us how nice it feels to be taken care of in dark times.”

each sale on pennies for penny will benefit up to three families in need this holiday season.

the penny ring {sold in a set of two} is made from pennies, with “in God we trust” still visible. all rings are individually handmade {with love} by volunteers specifically for the pennies for penny fund.

lives will forever be changed in the rememberance of penny.
