Pennies For Pigs
What is a Pennies for Pigs Drive? It is a school-wide fundraiser where students donate their spare change to purchase pigs (and other animals) for a Haitian family in need. In Haiti, owning a pig is like having a "living bank account." They are easy to care for, provide a valuable source of protein, and a valuable form of income from the sale of the pigs' offspring.
Step By Step
1. Get your school involved.
work with your teachers and principal to get other classes involved. Ideally, make it a school-wide contest!
2. Set GOALS.
Make individual classroom goals and a larger school-side goal.
Students can work to raise enough to purchase a pig, while schools can work together to purchase an ENTIRE Lambi Fund Farm with a pair of pigs, goats, sheep, and more — all going to a deserving Haitian community in need.
See the Lambi Fund Gift Catalog for more ideas.
3. Make posters and set up Piggy Banks.
Place piggy banks all throughout the school and in classrooms encouraging students to give their spare change to children just like them in Haiti.
Get creative! Create pig noses to wear around school to show you are a participant of the pig drive.
4. Download Videos and Photos of the Lambi Fund to Show at your School.
