Parking Meters Fight Homelessness

Sauntering through the Denver International Airport this week we passed a parking meter.

At least, it had been a parking meter. A bright idea and some paint transformed it into a quick, guiltless, fund raiser. 

 I'd left my spare change with the grandkids for their banks, but next trip I'll put it in my pocket for the homeless.

The parent organization has similar, blue meters in and around downtown Denver. From 2007 to 2013 they raised over $200,000. They accept change, debit and credit cards. 

If you find yourself going through the Denver airport, look for this one on B Concourse. Clean out the coins and help a family. 


  1. What a clever idea! I haven't seen anything like that in Texas but I'd put in my change.

  2. It;s a better use for change than the beer dispenser I saw in a German airport!


Readers, I have changed a setting which should make it easier to leave comments. Please try again so I can determine if it works or not. Thanks.
