Lucky Pennies and the Magic of a Wishing Well
For a young child that copper coin is a wealth of dreams and possibilities and although many adults may not admit it a lucky coin brings hope to them as well. When tossed into a wishing well the magic of this lucky little cent truly does come to life.
The magic of dreams cannot be under stated. A wish is hope. Having a lucky penny to toss into a wishing well can mean that one's most desired wish just may come true. Having two or three magic pennies can mean an afternoon of hopes and dreams as you decide how best to bestow the perfect wish onto each magic coin.
No matter how you view the concept of wishing wells and lucky pennies these tossed away coins can mean hope and inspiration to someone who otherwise would have none.
These magical coins have the power within them to change a person's life and more importantly to change a person's attitude toward their life.
Where do all those magical wishes go? Each of the coins that you toss into a wishing well will go to support someone in need. Often this money remains within the local community to help improve the circumstance of those who live there.
The money may also be used to provide support for those who live in under developed countries far from home. Used for those who are far less fortunate than ourselves. Those beautiful shiny pennies can be magically transformed into food, shelter, and medicines.
The coins tossed into the well can be used to purchase computers, books, and educational materials for those who might otherwise not have access to these very important learning tools.
The money may be used to feed animals at a local shelter or to provide spay or neuter programs. There are many charities that benefit from the money gifted into a wishing well.
Never think that one penny cannot make a difference in the big scheme of things because when that one little penny is added to another and then to another, it can have a tremendous impact.
That one penny becomes ten pennies, and then a dollar, then a hundred dollars, a thousand, and upwards from there. That one small penny has the ability to change the life of someone in need. One cent may not seem like a lot to give to charity but our combined efforts create a miracle. The wishes multiply.
The power of hope can never be understated. A wish is hope and hope has the power to change circumstance. Most coins that are tossed into a wishing well are donated to charity.
This money then provides food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, educational supplies for schools, and so much more. The money raised through these wishes provides hope for many who may otherwise have none.
Never stop believing in wishing wells and magic pennies. They are powerful each in their own way and when combined they develop an importance beyond what one would first conceive. It truly is amazing what a little penny can do.
