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.
