Please Donate In Ethiopia

When you visit a church or perhaps need to cross a river on a boat, you'll usually find a big metal box with a rough slot punched into it. Donations, please. There's no standardization to the boxes, each design a product of the local metal shop. Variety abounds!

A typical church box, open for business.

Maybe you like red, maybe you like yellow.

Perhaps add a picture of Jesus or The Virgin Mary, nicely wrapped.

Shoes off before entering the church. Sometime the boxes are hanging.

Maybe the box gets chained to a pole for security.

Or some sort of tape is applied over a lock or seam. Or maybe someone just stands guard.

Box at a school. Lunch money?
