This project is focused upon the design of the new concept of a punching tool that is able to make a hole large enough for a coin.

These can then be used as donation boxes, with the money we save being donated to the third world. It is not only a tool for giving money, but also for sharing our love with one another. After donation, donors can receive feedback via UNICEF, such as photos and letters, from the people.
