Pretty meters

In Montreal you can park your donations here.

As part of a project between Stationnement de Montréal (the city’s parking authority), the Ville-Marie borough and L’Itinéraire newspaper, in 2007 Montreal’s old parking meters were recycled as piggy banks to collect donations to help the homeless. This year, for Campagne ParcoDon 2010 they asked local Quebec celebrities and organizations to paint and personalize the meters. Who knew parking meters could be so pretty?
