Coins that Care' was a fundraising initiative that started on 26 September 2001. It was a foreign currency campaign supported by BP which took place in 12 European countries in aid of the Red Cross Movement. The drive behind the campaign was the changeover to the Euro which would make many national currencies redundant from the end of January 2002. Donations of coins and notes from any currency could be made at participating BP petrol stations until the end of February 2002 and at British Red Cross shops and Branches. All monies raised went to support community services in the UK. A special website was set up:
