DIY Dream Bank from Something Turquoise. This is a really easy idea that I posted in December 2011 but the $25 Uncommon Goods one is sold out by now.
My cheaper idea for making one, but not as elegant, was to take a shadow box (I just got 3 for $9 at Michaels) and adhere your photo to the backboard. Then make a small slot on the back (or if you are really handy, drill through the top trying not to split the wood) for the money to go through. Post for the below photo.

About you mcdonalds looting post: You can't justify breaking into someone's establishment and looting it because they were helping out protestors with the goods they stole. No one is telling the loot- protestors to go out and practice their first amendment right. But if they want to (to which they rightfully have the right to) they aren't justified to go and destroy property and loot others work. It's sickening what's going on over there and worst yet, the naiivety of "supporters" for the cause

You find it sickening that people support breaking into a McDonalds to get milk to help out people who were tear gassed.

I find it sickening that people like you hide behind the disingenuous care for local businesses and focus on poor McDonalds having their window broken instead of FAR more egregious rights violations and abuse of power that is going on with law enforcement. 

Journalists have been arrested for no reason. 
Cops are walking around with no badges or name tags.
Kids have been purposely tear gassed.
People standing on their OWN PROPERTY have been shot with rubber bullets and tear gassed. 

You ignore all of that to focus on some fucking milk from McDonalds because you can’t find any other way to oppose protests in regards to a Black teenager being murdered without looking like a bigot. 

That wack ass bullshit logic doesn’t fly around here.

This is #JonathanFerrell. Last summer, he crashed his car in Charlotte. He climbed out of his car and started walking in search of help. Police arrived, surrounded the site of the crash and Ofc. Randall Kerrick shot Jonathan multiple times in the chest, killing him. #endpolicebrutality

WHAT?

let us not forget

don't you think the fact that Michael Brown robbed a place makes it more likely that he actually was violent towards the officer?

Asked by: Anonymous

ghdos:

No, but obviously you do. Which means you should be terrified that Lindsay Lohan, Winona Ryder, Megan Fox, and Ke$ha are all still out roaming the streets. I mean, they must be out there assaulting people on a regular basis since, as you just pointed out, people who (allegedly) steal are predisposed to also being violent.

Also, fun fact: did you know that the officer who shot Michael Brown knew nothing about a robbery? I’m sure you did.

But that doesn’t mean he or any of the aforementioned ladies deserve to be killed at the hands of the police. Everyone is entitled to their day in court. Those ladies got theirs; Michael Brown will never receive his.

You tried it though.

In October of 2013, Andy Lopez who was just 13 years old was shot to death by Sonoma County Sheffis Deputy Erick Gelhaus. Andy was walking to a friends house carrying a toy gun designed to look like an AK-47. After being spotted by the police, they stopped and told him to drop his gun. Without allowing him enough time to properly react to the deputy’s orders, Andy was shot 7 times killing him atthe scene. It has been revealed that the deputy, Erick Gelhaus has a history of using excessive force and the Sonoma County Sheriff’s office was aware of it. He is also a firearms instructor who has been accused of having “racist and extremist tendencies and beliefs”. Last week Andy Lopez would of celebrated his 14th birthday. Instead, his family continues to fight for justice. There is an epidemic happening in our streets where police officers continue to criminalize and terrorize our black and brown community members. Continue to demand that the DA prosecute Sheriff Deputy Erick Gelhaus for his crime. PLEASE SHARE!!!!!
