$1.21 (the Fox News entry!)

Today we were interviewed on Fox News Channel here in New York City about this blog. Our children had an amazing time and we got to see live television in action- wow! The change today was picked up by Clayton Morris (co-host) during a teaser segment with co-host Alisyn Camerota.
Here are a few pictures we took en route :) It was SOOO EXCITING!! In all our excitement, we forgot to mention the name of our blog lol. Hubby did a search and found multiple links under 'Family Collects $1,000 Worth of Spare Change'.

(Update! Found more change after the show! In Manhattan of all places :) Found a dime, a nickel, and nine pennies in various places. If you get a chance, check out the Divine Performing Arts Chinese New Year Splendor 2009! P.S.S--> While on my way to RCMH, I noticed an older gentleman bend over with great effort to pick up a penny at a crosswalk off 7th avenue. I caught myself staring because I'd never witnessed someone brave the elements (it was FREEZING) in order to pick up a lone penny! Hubby went out of his way to rescue coins in the subway, the ferry, the street, and Dunkin Donuts off Times Square but he's seasoned at that kind of swoop and recover tactic. I can't wait for the weather to get warmer again :)

Total for today (so far) : $1.21

Total thus far: $53.55
