ARTIFACT: This is a really cool item. It's a donation tin bank from the early years of World War II. The donation campaign was for Children's Crusade for Children, which aimed to feed and clothe "Hungry and Homeless war-stricken children in other lands." The campaign ran in schools from April 22-30th in the year 1940. One of the biggest supporters of this program was Elanor Roosevelt, and the painting on the tin was done by Norman Rockwell.
