Moving up to two cents a day

Hubby and I are visiting Philadelphia. I consider visiting the National Museum of American Jewish History and when I looked at the website noticed a coin savings box. The two-cents-a-week rate remind me of the “two cents a day plan” the Universalists (PDF) once ran for missions.

Two cents a day (even in 1896) doesn’t sound like very much, but would that be today? (This resource to the rescue.)

About 56.24 cents a day, or more than $205 a year. Far more than the usual “chalice lighters” ask of $60. Food — and funds — for thought.
