Where is your Coins for Katie cup?
We have this big jar on our counter in our kitchen.
(Next to one of my favorite pictures ever of us, back when we only had two babies!)
This is Kirk's cup, on his desk in Murfreesboro, TN.
This is Matt's, on his motorcycle in Gardner, MA.
For some reason I think this may not be the permanent location. . .
This is Sonya's, in Murfreesboro, TN.
It's back in her house after being, of all places, at the Rutherford County jail! Her husband is a corrections officer and brought it to work with him.
Don't worry - he's bringing it back on his next shift.
Look closely - there are dollars in there!
This jar is in my office.
When our cups get full, we're pouring them in this jar.
It's conveniently placed right between the two chairs I have for people to sit in.
Don't think that was an accident.
This is my cup in my office.
I have it facing everyone who comes in to sit down or talk to me, and almost everyone asks me about it.
This is Auntie Nessa's on her kitchen counter in Smyrna, TN.
Auntie Nessa, who doesn't have children of her own and doesn't want them, is very excited about little miss Katie Ruth.
Do you have a Coins for Katie cup?
If you do, I'd love for you to send me a picture of it, wherever you've got it, so I can include it here!
If you don't have one and you want one, I'd love to send you one!
Leave a comment here, or send me an email and I'll get one right out to you!
And we've also gotten our first check in the mail. My uncle Rob and his family (his wife, two daughters including the crafty Sarah of emmyloubeedo, and their families) counted up their coins and sent us a check for $174.67. Thank you so, so much!!
