We made an appointment to go to the bank today!
Brigitta has collected more than 10,000 pennies so we brought a cart full to the bank to be counted.
Let me tell you--- 10,000 pennies are heavy!!!
Thankfully, we remembered our rolling cart that we use for library books and that made the going easier.
Here Brigitta is waiting for the bank to finish running the pennies through the automatic coin counter. What takes her hours to count, the bank did in 10 minutes.
Here are the bags of pennies after being counted and before they went into the vault.
And a close-up of Brigitta with the check to God's Word for the Nations. The bank was kind enough to donate the fees they usually charge for a cashier's check.
