A Selfless Request to the Tooth Fairy

Tooth Fairy

Attention Tooth Fairy!

“To the tooth fairy, you can take my tooth of you give me pennies”

Why is this selfless?

Our daughters get $1 (a loonie) when they lose a tooth. This request for pennies is because Kate is trying to fill a bag of pennies for “We  Create Change” Free the children penny drive, a campaign that will give a child in a third world country clean water for their entire life, for every $25 dollar bag of pennies collected.

We had no idea that our 7 year was so passionate about filling her bag of pennies until the tooth fairy went to place a loonie in the tooth container and found the special note.

Thankfully the tooth fairy managed to find some pennies…

If you have any extra pennies laying around, this is a great cause and Kate would be thrilled to use those pennies to help kids have clean water.

  1. Aw! That is awesome! Good for her!

  2. That is just awesome! My daughter is two and we are trying to teach her lessons like this as well. She was so excited to help gather food from our own pantry to fill the food bank bag a few weeks ago :)

  3. What a sweet, compassionate young girl – love it. Where do you get the bags for the pennies Jody? I know my kids would like to be a part of this too.

  4. That’s great of her! I hope I do a good job of teaching my kids how to be selfless.

  5. What a great cause and a great way for your little girl to help the others!!

  6. How great that your daughter has that sense of charity and ability to make a difference at such a young age. Love the note!

    My husband and I were just talking about what will we do when all the pennies are gone!?
