Give a Lucky Penny Day

May 23 is Lucky Penny Day and the best way to celebrate is to send residents on their way in the morning with a bit of good (penny) luck!


The Origins of the Lucky Penny

In American culture, finding a penny is traditionally considered lucky. The rhyme that explains this is, "Find a penny, pick it up, and all the day you'll have good luck."


But you don't have to wait to find a dirty penny on the ground (like this eagle-eyed lady that's found hundreds over the years). You can actually just give them away to celebrate “Lucky Penny Day.”


Spread the Good Luck!


Everyone can use a bit of extra good luck, so spread the cheer with this fun and simple event.


The best part of the lucky penny event is its super low cost. Aside from the shiny new pennies (which only cost, you guessed it, $.01 each) you don't have to add much expense.


You may want to buy little craft baggies to package them up with some glitter or a motivational message as you give them away.


If you're feeling generous, you can also mix in some extra special surprises to a few lucky residents. Just add some special motivational notes, coupons, gift certificates, or other “bonuses” throughout the packages when giving out the lucky pennies.


Giving the Pennies Away

For this simple, inexpensive, and fun event either give out “lucky” pennies at the gate in the morning, or invite residents to come by the office and pick one up.


You can also combine this with another breakfast giveaway like fruit and granola bars or a morning coffee bar in the clubhouse.


**BONUS** Ask residents to share their answers on social media to the question, “What are you lucky to have in your life?” with your own community hashtag like #LuckyAtRiverside or #LuckyAtTheRidge for even more fun!

Hope you have a lucky day!
