Ceramic piggy bank.
*Catching up on 3/21/13*
In 2011 Deana and I gave our family members piggy banks for Hanukkah. Â The mission was for everybody to save as much as they could, and at Hanukkah 2012, the person with the most saved would get a prize.
Well, nobody really did this except for my dad and I think my brother, so we didn’t bother with the prize. Â But my cousin Carin did something exceptionally thoughtful with her bank, and turned out to be the one of the best gifts we’ve received in a long time…
Carin saved up all year with our family in mind, and her gift to us was the bank we gave her in 2011, but full of change. Â She said that every time she saw the bank, she thought of us. Â I loved hearing about how as the bank filled, the sound of the change changed as it dropped into the bank.
We ended up with $78, which went towards our vacation fund. Â Awesome. Â I love my cousin.
