    coins

    How and where do i get rid of coins? I got a big bag full of coins, Its really heavy..i was thinking of giving it to beggars but i doubt they will take it because its not just HK coins... coins from HK, Singapore, Macao, US, UK, Guatemala, Colombia, Euro, Thailand, Filipines, Indos etc etc etc...........
    Is there like a charity org in hk that takes mixed foreign coins?
    ThankS.
    Happy&Healthy 2009!!!!

    They have money boxes at the airport to donate to some random charity.
