Godmother saves 500,000 pennies to help send her goddaughter to college

From EURWebCollege tuition is no joke these days.  It’s getting higher and higher as we go along.  But, there is one young lady out there that will be going to college with the help of a lot of love and a whole lot of pennies.

Kyla Gilbert is headed to college in the fall and her godmother is making sure she will have all the money she needs.  Her godmother Faith Hammock, 40, collected her 500,000th penny just in time to make $5,000 available to her goddaughter for college.  She had collected pennies since Kyla was three and now 15 years later she is using those same pennies for school.
