Burnaby Gogos seeking pennies
With the penny going out of circulation, the Burnaby Gogos are collecting them as part of a coin drive called Change for Change.
The funds raised will support African grandmothers who have stepped in to care for grandchildren and thousands of other children orphaned by AIDS. Already, Burnaby Gogos have sent $2,000 worth of coins to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign to help fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa.
Gogo means grandmother in Zulu. Burnaby Gogos is a group of local women which belongs to a network of similar grandmother groups.
They'll even arrange to pick up those pennies. Info: firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-433-3026.
