I’ve been cleaning junk drawers and came across three envelopes, each containing a money folder and a crisp new “Christmas Dollar.” Apparently, they were a money making project of a newspaper related charity out of Columbus called, Charity Newsies. It seems that the Big Bear chain of groceries, which I think is now defunct, had something to do with sponsorship.
It appears the deal was to take a factory fresh dollar bill and paste the face of Santa over George’s. Wrap it all in a nice bundle and sell it for more than a dollar.
We have no recollection of when or where we acquired these but maybe some of you can shed light on it.
