What are Money Tins?

A Money Box (sometimes referred to as charity cans, money tins or collection tins) is the traditional name of a coin container made out of metal with a slot in the top, for depositing coins. Money Boxes serve a multitude of purposes, but are normally used by charities for fundraising, by children for saving and by corporations for promotional purposes –

Money Boxes are generally branded with a company logo or personal message and serve as a pedagogical device to teach the rudiments of thrift and savings. In South Africa and many other countries, money boxes form a vital part of the fundraising and charity industries; they can be seen at most till-points allowing for the passer-by to easily and safely donate their left-over coins and pocket shrapnel.

Although only recently popularized, the oldest Western find of a money box dates from the 2nd century BC Greek colony Priene, Asia Minor, and features the shape of a miniature Greek temple with a slit in the pediment. Money boxes of various forms were also excavated in Pompeii and Herculaneum, and appear quite frequently on late ancient provincial sites, particularly in Roman Britain and along the Rhine.

Can It’s money tins do not have an opening besides the slot for inserting coins, making them secure and safe, and would need to be opened with a can-opener or by other means, to obtain the money within. Make the most out of your money box by waiting until it is completely full before opening.

Charity Cans as part of CSI

Aligned with our country’s priorities and the Millennium Development Goals; Can It plays an important role in the socio-economic development of South Africa, supplying millions of money boxes and collection tins to charities, non-profits, schools and religious institutions for fundraising.

Within the South African context, corporate social investment has a pivotal role to play in bringing about meaningful transformation to the benefit of all.  The social needs facing our country are substantial and it is a moral duty for companies to make a difference by supporting projects that benefit historically disadvantaged sectors of our society.

With corporate social investment becoming more strategically focused, it makes sense for businesses to align their corporate social investment spend in such a way that it represents your company values correctly, markets your brand, and impacts the community positively as much as possible.

The Can It Money Box does just that.

  1. Your Logo, prominently branded around the tin, is a valuable marketing tool.

  1. Your Company Values and Imperatives will be on the label, becoming ever-more clear to the public.

  1. Money boxes distributed wisely will prove a ROI of over 1000%. Your CSI will blow through the roof without needing to increase actual spend.

Such an approach moves CSI out of the charitable sphere into one in which true partnerships with beneficiaries, government and NGOs bring about long-term sustainable development to the benefit of all.

“It is against this background, and guided by the key social development needs highlighted by government, that Can It presents the Money Box as not only a brilliant fundraising item for non-profits but an item that will quadruple your company corporate social investment without needing to spend one cent more.”

  • A specially designed educational workbook

Fundraising Cans & Charity as part of Religion

Tzedakah BoxesCharity in the Tanakh

Pirkei Avot 2:8: Hillel used to say, The more tzedakah, the more shalom.

Jews, who are only about 2% of the American population, are 30% of America’s most generous donors. Similarly, a 2003 study (reported in the Jewish Journal) found that 24.5% of all “mega-donors” (people who donate more than $10 million a year to charity) are Jewish.

Tzedakah” is the Hebrew word for the acts that we call “charity” in English: giving aid, assistance and money to the poor and needy or to other worthy causes. However, the nature of tzedakah is very different from the idea of charity. The word “charity” suggests benevolence and generosity, a magnanimous act by the wealthy and powerful for the benefit of the poor and needy. The word “tzedakah” is derived from the Hebrew root Tzadei-Dalet-Qof, meaning righteousness, justice or fairness.

In Judaism, giving to the poor is not only viewed as a generous, magnanimous act; it is simply an act of justice and righteousness, the performance of a duty, giving the poor their due. In practice, most Jews carry out tzedakah by donating a portion of their income to charitable institutions, or to needy people that they may encounter

Deuteronomy 16:17: Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the L-rd you G-d that He has given thee.

Tzedakah is considered to be one of the three main acts that can annul a less than favorable heavenly decree. It is taught that Tzedakah money was never yours to begin with, rather, it always belongs to God, who merely entrusts you with it so that you may use it properly. Hence it is your obligation to ensure that it is received by those deserving of it.

Gemilut Hasadim means ‘the giving of loving-kindness’ and applies to all types of charitable works. It is a mitzvah (commandment) that an individual completes gemilut hasadim without expecting anything in return.

Baba Batra 9b: One who gives charity in secret is greater than Moses.

The second highest form of tzedakah is to give donations anonymously to unknown recipients. Can It’s collection tins or tzedakah boxes, at till-points, provide the ideal opportunity for individuals to discreetly and voluntarily donate to unknown recipients, without getting anything in return and also provide the means for charities to collect money without having to ask or pressure anyone. Our collection tins or tzedakah boxes are widely used to raise funds for Shuls and Jewish organizations.

Charity BoxesCharity in the Christian Bible

Have you ever just stopped and thought about the current state of our world? If you haven’t, it would be wise for you to do so! When you turn on the news it seems all you see is pain; war, murder, infidelity, and crime are on every news report. But, every once in a while there is an inspiring story that warms the hearts of many and gives hope to those who have lost it due to living in this world. The Bible is very similar in this regard. Much of what’s included in the Bible is bad; people die, sin abounds, and various crimes are committed. Yet, amidst all of that there is the message of hope. Despite all of the evil, charity is often illuminated within the pages. But, what does charity mean in the Bible? Like usual, to find out, we must look into the Word of God and see where charity is talked about.

2 Corinthians 9:7 “so let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”

In the Bible, much like what we would believe today, charity is equated with giving. To be charitable, literally, would mean to be a giver. In the context of 2 Corinthians 9, the Apostle Paul is talking about money; however, charity is never limited to money within the Bible. Regardless, the Bible does tell us to bless others as much as we can. Yet, it must be done cheerfully, otherwise it is meaningless. We should never feel obligated to be charitable—we should want to be! After all, Jesus was incredibly charitable to us.

Proverbs 19:17 “He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, and He will pay back what he has given.”

Charity involves helping those who need it. Often times, it will be through giving tithes to a church or through handing someone in need some money. But, there are other ways to be charitable to the less fortunate, too. If we know someone in need, we can always buy the groceries, give some type of gift card, or pay for a bill that we know is coming up.

Hebrews 13:2 “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.”

In order to be charitable, it is also important to be hospitable. The two often go hand-in-hand. Hospitality means we are willing to open up our homes and lives to those that need it. It doesn’t mean that we have to allow strangers to sleep in our homes, but it does mean we are to be friendly, compassionate, and kind to anybody around us—including strangers!

This is a perfect definition of charity found in the Bible. Again, it doesn’t necessarily mean money has to be given (although that’s certainly included). The fact is, it’s far greater than just handing out money or tithing—it goes deep into our hearts. If we are a charitable person, we will start caring for other people more than we care for ourselves. We will start wanting to listen to other people’s troubles more than we like to speak about our own. In other words, to be charitable according to the Bible is to be a sacrificial giver of every part of our life, from our money to our time. ~Source: Patheos

Sadaqah BoxesCharity in the Quran

Muhammad said in a hadith that sadaqa removes seventy gates of evil

According to the Quran, the word Sadaqah means voluntary offering, whose amount is at the will of the “benefactor”. Related words are used to indicate “moral excellence”, such as al-siddiq (truthful), used to describe the prophet Joseph, or sadiq (trusted friend).

Kind words and “compassion” are better than sadaqa accompanied by “insult”, from the viewpoint of Quran, and it is better for the donations to be offered “discreetly” to those in need rather than doing it in public in order to be acknowledged by them.

The Quran also criticizes donating aimed at appearing generous or compromising the value of sadaqa by “ostentatious public behavior” done just to “render a normally charitable act purely self-serving.” Quran suggests that sadaqa is not meant only to support the poor, but also can be donated to others who “were not visibly in need” and also who either needed assistance to enhance their life or required to be directed towards new jobs and “economic opportunities”

The word is interchangeably used with Zakat and Nafaqa in some occasions, however, while zakat is obligatory, Sadaqa usually refers to voluntary donations.

‘Wheel’ of Fortune

In a world rife with poverty and starvation, your Five Rand makes an extraordinary difference.

When considering poverty in the developing world, many people feel deep sorrow but conclude that there is nothing we can do about it. The scale of poverty is immense and we seem powerless to stop it. Such despair is understandable, but the facts tell a very different story. While poverty is indeed extreme and widespread, it is easy to forget just how many people there are, and how powerful our pocket change can become when pooled together.

When giving to an effective charity, the size of your donation directly correlates with the number of people you are able to help. But you don’t have to be a millionaire to make a significant difference; even small donations have the potential to drastically improve an individual’s quality of life. Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising monetary contributions from a large number of people.

Money Boxes at till checkout points are the ideal and most profitable form of crowd-funding for charityCause Marketing Forum, which assists charities and companies on fundraising partnerships, analysed the 63 checkout campaigns in the United States that earned at least $1 million (R12 million) in 2012. Combined, they raised $358.4 million (R4.7 Billion) — more than a dollar for every American.

So… next time you see a money box at Pick n Pay or your local Spaza shop, keep in mind these FIVE reasons of why you should give FIVE Rand –

1. Giving makes us feel happy.  A 2008 study by Harvard Business School professor Michael Norton and colleagues found that giving money to someone else lifted participants’ happiness more that spending it on themselves (despite participants’ prediction that spending on themselves would make them happier). Happiness expert Sonja Lyubomirsky, a professor of psychology at the University of California, Riverside, saw similar results when she asked people to perform five acts of kindness each week for six weeks.These good feelings are reflected in our biology. In a 2006 study, Jorge Moll and colleagues at the National Institutes of Health found that when people give to charities, it activates regions of the brain associated with pleasure, social connection, and trust, creating a “warm glow” effect. Scientists also believe that altruistic behaviour releases endorphins in the brain, producing the positive feeling known as the “helper’s high.”

2. Giving is good for our health. A wide range of research has linked different forms of generosity to better health, even among the sick and elderly. In his book Why Good Things Happen to Good People, Stephen Post, a professor of preventative medicine at Stony Brook University, reports that giving to others has been shown to increase health benefits in people with chronic illness, including HIV and multiple sclerosis. A 1999 study led by Doug Oman of the University of California, Berkeley, found that elderly people who volunteered for two or more organizations were 44 percent less likely to die over a five-year period than were non-volunteers, even after controlling for their age, exercise habits, general health, and negative health habits like smoking.Stephanie Brown of the University of Michigan saw similar results in a 2003 study on elderly couples. She and her colleagues found that those individuals who provided practical help to friends, relatives, or neighbours, or gave emotional support to their spouses, had a lower risk of dying over a five-year period than those who didn’t. Interestingly, receiving help wasn’t linked to a reduced death risk.Researchers suggest that one reason giving may improve physical health and longevity is that it helps decrease stress, which is associated with a variety of health problems. In a 2006 study by Rachel Piferi of Johns Hopkins University and Kathleen Lawler of the University of Tennessee, people who provided social support to others had lower blood pressure than participants who didn’t, suggesting a direct physiological benefit to those who give of themselves.

3. Giving promotes cooperation and social connection. When you give, you’re more likely to get back: Several studies, including work by sociologists Brent Simpson and Robb Willer, have suggested that when you give to others, your generosity is likely to be rewarded by others down the line— sometimes by the person you gave to, sometimes by someone else.These exchanges promote a sense of trust and cooperation that strengthens our ties to others—and research has shown that having positive social interactions is central to good mental and physical health. As researcher John Cacioppo writes in his book Loneliness: Human Nature and the Need for Social Connection, “The more extensive the reciprocal altruism born of social connection . . . the greater the advance toward health, wealth, and happiness.”What’s more, when we give to others, we don’t only make them feel closer to us; we also feel closer to them. “Being kind and generous leads you to perceive others more positively and more charitably,” writes Lyubomirsky in her book The How of Happiness, and this “fosters a heightened sense of interdependence and cooperation in your social community.”

4. Giving evokes gratitude. Whether you’re on the giving or receiving end of a gift, that gift can elicit feelings of gratitude—it can be a way of expressing gratitude or instilling gratitude in the recipient. And research has found that gratitude is integral to happiness, health, and social bonds.Robert Emmons and Michael McCullough, co-directors of the Research Project on Gratitude and Thankfulness, found that teaching college students to “count their blessings” and cultivate gratitude caused them to exercise more, be more optimistic, and feel better about their lives overall. A recent study led by Nathaniel Lambert at Florida State University found that expressing gratitude to a close friend or romantic partner strengthens our sense of connection to that person.Barbara Fredrickson, a pioneering happiness researcher, suggests that cultivating gratitude in everyday life is one of the keys to increasing personal happiness. “When you express your gratitude in words or actions, you not only boost your own positivity but [other people’s] as well,” she writes in her book Positivity. “And in the process you reinforce their kindness and strengthen your bond to one another.”

5. Giving is contagious. When we give, we don’t only help the immediate recipient of our gift. We also spur a ripple effect of generosity through our community.A study by James Fowler of the University of California, San Diego, and Nicholas Christakis of Harvard, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, shows that when one person behaves generously, it inspires observers to behave generously later, toward different people. In fact, the researchers found that altruism could spread by three degrees—from person to person to person to person. “As a result,” they write, “each person in a network can influence dozens or even hundreds of people, some of whom he or she does not know and has not met.”Giving has also been linked to the release of oxytocin, a hormone (also released during sex and breast feeding) that induces feelings of warmth, euphoria, and connection to others. In laboratory studies, Paul Zak, the director of the Centre for Neuro-economic Studies at Claremont Graduate University, has found that a dose of oxytocin will cause people to give more generously and to feel more empathy towards others, with “symptoms” lasting up to two hours. And those people on an “oxytocin high” can potentially jumpstart a “virtuous circle, where one person’s generous behaviour triggers another’s,” says Zak.So whether you buy gifts, volunteer your time, or donate money to charity, your giving is much more than just a chore. It may help you build stronger social connections and even jumpstart a cascade of generosity through your community. And don’t be surprised if you find yourself benefiting from a big dose of happiness in the process.~Source: GreaterGood
