This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.

"should I use this $500k to help struggling parents and pregnant people or should I put it in a glass box"

How much money have you  wasted that could’ve gone to help struggling parents and pregnant women is the better question to ask.

Yeah if i was a struggling parent and I saw that “monument”, you know what I’d do? Break into that fucker and use the money to help my kid get a better life.
Clearly those “charitable” folks aren’t using it on kids that have actually been born.

A few facts that the OP neglected to mention.
a)  The glass box is on the grounds of the Mississippi Baptist Convention building—right across from the Mississippi state capitol. It was placed there deliberately to remind legislators that the Baptist Church—which is very powerful in the South—is staunchly anti-abortion.
b) This wasn’t created by regular people, charitable or otherwise. It was a deliberate and high-profile project of the Convention. Using the services of a construction company that worked free of charge, they erected the glass box in 2006, putting 47 MILLION pennies in it on the day that it opened, thus creating the illusion that many, many people had contributed.
c) Once $500K was collected—back in 2008, by the way, and the photo dates back to 2007—the money was then spent by the Convention, which invested it on a permanent endowment fund for anti-abortion causes, such as assisting with the operations of crisis pregnancy centers.
d) Almost all crisis pregnancy centers are church-sponsored and evangelical in nature.
e) Most crisis pregnancy centers have ties to evangelical maternity homes, adoption lawyers, and private adoption agencies. Any crisis that a woman coming to such a center might be facing would be irrelevant; for the purposes of the center and its affiliates, it is paramount that she have the baby. Babies, especially healthy white babies, are in high demand by would-be adoptive parents, and there is a very small supply.  There are horror stories about women who have been forced continue pregnancies and who have been forced to relinquish, most to evangelical families. Evangelical churches support and encourage this kind of thing. They figure that this way, they win twice over: they save lives AND they get to control how the next generation thinks. 
f) So, to recap.The Baptist Church underwrites the memorial (at least the first 47 million). The funds eventually go back to the Baptist Church, which invests them in businesses that will help produce more goods—babies—for other evangelical businesses, such as adoption agencies and adoption lawyers, AND that will create more religious and political support in the future.
This is NOT a memorial created by heartbroken people, OP. It’s big business.

Did any one even bother to look it up
They donated it all to and I quote “Across our state there are Christian Crisis Pregnancy Centers and special needs related to women struggling with an unwanted pregnancy. The dollars produced from the endowment will all go to help with these needs.”
so yes they still help struggling pregnant people and parents. 

Well then

Aren’t Christian Crisis Pregnancy Centres the ones that try to shame and manipulate women out of abortions, and provide no actual useful assistance for women struggling with financial and social problems that could be driving them to seek an abortion? And in some cases actually put up the false front of aiding women seeking abortions only to stall them until it’s too late? x x x x

Yeeeep. There’s a bunch of them where I live; thankfully there’s also a local Planned Parenthood.

Lygara knew as soon as she woke up that the diary that had been entrusted to her was missing. One might say that it had been because of a mystical connection that meant she always knew its general direction. While this was true, more immediately correct was that she kept it on her bedside table in a locked box, and this box had been pried open.
She reviewed possible culprits. On the one hand, there weren’t a lot of people with access; even fewer would not be questioned as to what the hell they were doing in Lygara’s room in the middle of the night.
Even fewer wouldn’t wake her up prying it open. In fact there was probably only one person with those sets of skills. She stormed up to her desk.
Muttering imprecations about the Mystikos and her youngest sister, Lygara opened a map to determine immediate routes of escape, eyes flickering over it. Passes out of the Matean Shield were few, and the land was weeks and weeks of chaotic, nearly impassible terrain as the eagle flew.
If Aretia were the only one who could take it, the only ones who would want it were the Matelans, what with the First Emperor underground again and them complaining of wild dragons. They’d even sent a delegation to the effect not long ago, which had been as refreshingly blunt as a block of granite— and had flown about as far.
The pass North would be useless without a cover story. Heading east would be useless. Once the news got out, the Mystikos would be looking for her in port- and news through the network of spies went far faster when things like national treasures were on the line.
That left the pass West. That thought gave Lygara pause. Ruler of deMatea she might be, but with the depleted salt mine above it, and the massive miasma of the Hex of Rebellion within it, and the unquiet Dead, it was at best something taken with the desperate sort of idiocy usually reserved for fools with money.
It was also the fastest, least-watched pass through the Shield, and Aretia was a fool with money.
Lygara sighed, and called servants to prepare for a lone excursion. She couldn’t afford to take more people than necessary through there and risk making the problem worse.
And that meant the old standby of rulers everywhere, making use of a shady band of hired goons.

I am both pleased and mildly digusted by my own cleverness.

Today I learned how to arm knit!

Several hours later, I’ve made two scarves…

Figured out how to knit in the round…

And made myself a functional net bag.

today i saw, on the subway tracks, two rats that might have well been both named Pinky.
As i was waiting for the train these two numbnuts were peckin away at some random trash on the floor. Then, when they heard the train coming, the first one ran towards the wall, but he totally forgot that he can’t climb walls so he ran back, but the other rat didn’t see it coming… Dudes crashed into one another and both of them fell straight onto their backs, before scrambling back to their feet.
I laughed. so. hard.
