Small change for a sea change

Most of us were lucky enough as children to be given pocket money. What was pocket money for you as a child is small change now. It can help us give our children experiences and support that will create a sea change in their childhood.

My pocket money story

When I was a kid, my favourite way to use pocket money (called 'allowance' where I come from) was to go to Jack's. Jack was an old farmer who ran a penny candy store, and this store was well off my normal beaten path. So going to Jack's was always a bit special and involve a small sense of a journey. I haven't thought of Jack or his store in years and years. Great fundraiser, Seamab! I hope it's fruitful.
