WireService.ca Press Release - Feb 21, 2013

Check out the informative article titled: Why should we care about losing the penny? | The Grid TO by KATIE UNDERWOOD, Feb 21, 2013.

Katie also interviewed Miss SUZETTE, creator of The Penny ART Project, in Canada.

"Someone who is intimately aware of the penny's importance is Miss Suzette (that's actually her real name), a Toronto-based humour coach and journalist who runs a volunteer group called "The Penny Project" out of community outreach centre 6 St. Joseph House in the Church-Wellesley village.

The group gathers every Friday night for four hours to shine and sort pennies, adorning everything from jewellery to art to office supplies with their supply of coins.

"People never think of it. It's like, 'Big deal! A penny,'" says Suzette, who is, fittingly, also known as Miss Pretty Penny among her participants.

"People are saying, 'Good riddance,' and, 'They're heavy to carry around!' but since starting the project, I've gone from stepping on them to making something out of them."

Financial and retail implications notwithstanding, Suzette is a proponent of the penny's nostalgic value. "Kids were taught to count with the penny; there's an old tradition of cultural phrases related to it, like, 'Find a penny, pick it up.'

Sure, it'll be nice not to have all of that in your pocket anymore, but you'll find them in your couch or in jars or shoes-they're everywhere. And they're good luck, always."

The Penny ART $ALE & Free Workshops are FRIDAYS, 4-8 p.m., at 6 St. Joseph House, Toronto. For more penny insights, visit the website: Miss-SUZETTE.com Just (CLICK) on the PENNY!
