Currency for Kids
What is Currency for Kids?
Donations of global currency from around the world to FACS Foundation. This currency has no real value in Canada.
It is estimated that over $2 Billion in global currency can currently be found in homes and businesses across Canada. These are the coins (or bills) left in the bottom of your suitcase from a trip abroad. Maybe they are in the junk drawer, a jar or in your desk.
FACS is asking you to donate those coins. The currency will be repatriated to their countries of origin and we will receive the proceeds in Canadian currency.
It is estimated that in Ontario there is $840+ Million in Ontario alone. Imagine the impact of those funds right here in Waterloo Region!
How to Support Currency for Kids
Dig out those coins! Get the whole family involved to find them! What a great way to remember those memories! Once you have them, you can drop them off at Family and Children's Services Foundation in the Family Centre.
