Dad dumps 80,000 pennies for child support; daughter donates it to domestic abuse shelter
LINK w/ short news video
quote:

 A Virginia man went to extreme measures to show he was not happy about paying child support.

He dumped 80,000 pennies in front of his daughter’s home as his final payment. Avery Sanford, 18, took those pennies and turned his act of anger into a positive for families in need.


quote:

“He pulled up in front of our house, like turned the trailer on so it dumped out all the pennies in the street in front of our house,” she said. “And my mom walked outside while it was happening. She didn’t recognize them at first. And she asked, ‘What are you dumping on my lawn?’ And he said, ‘It’s your final child support payment.’ And that’s when she realized who it was.”

She had to use a snow shovel in the summer to scoop up the domestic drama.

“It’s not just her (my mother) that he’d be trying to embarrass,” Sanford said. “It’s also me, it’s also my sister. And it’s upsetting that he doesn’t really consider that before he did this.”



quote:

They donated his last child support payment - every penny - to Safe Harbor, a domestic abuse shelter.

“Turning around and donating that money to moms and children in need, like I feel like that just really turns the situation into a positive one,” Sanford said. “You can learn a lesson from it.”

Sanford said she hasn’t spoken to her father in years.



quote:

Her father spoke in a phone interview, saying it was 18 years of frustration built up. His emotions got the best of him, and the last thing he wanted to do was to put a further wedge between him and his daughter.

Dick move by father that now makes him look worse.
At least he paid the child support, I guess.

That’s only like $800. Trashy.

So they didn’t need it and proved his point?

Gotta side with dad on this one. Women are vindictive and mean. He was making a statement to mom.

The worst part is if they missed a few pennies, the next time they mow will be deadly

Well he used a shotgun and not a rifle, metaphorically speaking.

You're just as big as a dumb frick as the ex husband.

You know what statement dumping 80,000 pennies on the lawn makes? That you're a total a-hole and a massive fricking child.

I’m siding with the dad… especially since the daughter said she hasn’t even seen or talked to her dad in years… so he was a good enough dad to make sure she got that $800 a month and still had no contact with his daughter… yeah at that point I think he was justified…

Exactly - in the video it says the daughter hasn’t spoken to him in years, yet he still had to pay child support. The daughter didn’t have to go see her father?? Why??

She and her mother chose a domestic abuse shelter to donate the money to

Makes you wonder …

I don't understand people who do this to their children.

Where does it say that the estrangement was at the behest of the child?

The dad is the type of a-hole to settle his debts with pennies. No doubt that bleeds over to him being an a-hole elsewhere in his life.

The article says that the daughter “made the difficult decision” to keep him out of her life. He either abused the Mom or the women are garbage to have that kind of relationship.

It sure as shite will be now.

The fact that she donated the money to a domestic abuse shelter also likely indicates what she thinks of him.

Dude is my fricking hero.

But I can absolutely empathize with this dad and his actions.

Oh, and there are no moms who turn their children against Dad because they are vindictive and play the victim? I have seen this MANY times. You have no idea how women can be in brainwashing their children against their ex-husbands.
