Relation to the Book
The two dimes above represent the act of kindness exhibited by Jem and Scout. During the book, To Kill a Mocking Bird, Calpurnia, the house maid of the Finches, took the children to her church one Sunday morning. All of the church's disciples gladly excepted the Finch children except for one, but Calpurnia easily took care of her. When everyone was together inside they sung songs and listened to Reverend Sykes pray. At the end however, Reverend Sykes asked for a donation to go to the Robinson home to help support them while Tom was in jail. They need to collect a total of $10, but they were originally a couple of dollars short. Out of the kindness of their hearts, Scout and Jem both donated the dimes they had in their pockets.
