Dad pays 80,000p of final alimony then mum and daughters donate coins to victims of domestic violence

Avery Sanford recently celebrated her 18th birthday. While for some people that might mean a party, celebration and gifts, in Sanford’s case it led to an unusual home delivery.
Sanford was at home in class when she saw a truck parking lot in front of her house. It was her father. No, he didn’t bring her a present or a birthday cake. He didn’t bring her balloons or a birthday card. He was there to pay the last of the child support payments.

Sanford isn’t on good terms with her dad, and after seeing how he decided to pay his final child support payment, she has no regrets about her decision to stay away from him. Instead of writing a check, the dad literally dumped 80,000 pennies on the street in front of Sanford’s home.

Although Sanford and her mom were both baffled and shocked at the way the very last child support payment was delivered, they decided to turn a bad situation into something positive. Her mom got out a snow shovel to scoop up the pennies. Then she turned around and donated the entire child support payment to a charity that helps moms and children.


Watch the video below to learn more about this unusual child support payment and to hear why Sanford’s dad says he decided to pay in pennies.
