Virginia Teen Donates 80,000 Pennies to Shelter After Dad Uses Them as Last Child Support Payment

This is quite the story. A Virginia teen’s estranged father handed over his last child support payment in the most outrageous way, by dumping 80,000 pennies on the teen’s and her mother’s front lawn. WTVR reports that Avery Sanford has now donated that money—which amounts to $800—to Safe Harbor, a shelter for people who have endured domestic violence, sexual violence, or human trafficking. “Turning around and donating that money to moms and children in need, I feel like that really turns this situation into a positive one,” she told the news outlet. “You can learn a lesson from it.” Way to go Avery!
