Ever Wonder What Happens to the Coins You Throw in Fountains?

June 3, 2016

Believe it or not, when you make a wish and throw a coin into a fountain, the coin doesn't magically turn into fairy dust and make your wish come true."The Atlantic"just did an investigation to figure out what happens to a coin when someone throws it in a fountain. And usually, a homeless person winds up taking it. If they don't, there's another decent chance it'll wind up going to someone in need. A lot of places collect the coins in their fountain and donate them to charities.
