On February 9, 2012 I showed off the Freedom Jar, a coin jar for my pocket change, that when full will be donated to a non-profit organization that promotes freedom. Well guess what?

The Jar is Full

This is all of the change in the jar.

For some reason, I had the uncontrollable desire to dump the change on the floor. Messy is good.

It's Not Going Back In

Try as I might, I couldn't get all of the change back in the jar.

How does that happen? It doesn't matter. The change was put in a bag and off I petaled to the nearest Coinstar machine. Hey Coinstar, please put the EFF on your machines as a charity.

$35.97

In total, the jar held about 39 dollars, and after Coinstar took their cut I had $35.97 to give to a non-profit organization that promotes freedom.

When I handed my receipt to a cashier in order to collect my loot, the cashier asked if I had 3 pennies. Hey, if I had 3 pennies, I would have put them in the Coinstar machine.

There was a 1958 dime that was rejected by the machine so I decided to keep it.

When I petaled home, I got online and donated $35.97 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an organization that fights for internet freedom.

Thank you EFF. Thank you very much.
