Making Change Matter
For years now we have, from time to time, publically questioned the value of the penny; even as recently as last December, Global News
reported that the Senate's finance committee recommended abandoning the coin as it had lost its value in the current economy.
Desjardins estimates that there are over 20 billion pennies in circulation in Canada
A single penny dropped is insignificant, to be sure, but collectively they can add up to big change.
With the support of our friends from Global BC, Churchill Armoured Car, Canpar and RBC, we have launched Making Change Matter
, a program to make use of loose change and forgotten pennies.
From now until September 5, join other British Columbians who want to make their change count. Drop off your pennies, and bring their friends the nickels, dimes, quarters, loonies and toonies at any RBC branch across BC
and make your change matter for the kids at BC Children's Hospital.
