Piggy is a set of two savings banks that nest together. The larger “momma” bank is for a child’s personal savings, and the smaller bank is for the child's charitable savings.
I saw Piggy on Design Milk and thought it was too fantastic not to share.  This has touched me in a way I cannot even explain.  The ideas behind Piggy are the very values I hope to instill in my children, as my parents did with me.  It is very important to me that my husband and I raise our children to have integrity, compassion, gratefulness... and hearts of gold.  Philanthropy will be a part of their daily lives and Piggy seems like such a wonderful way to continue this journey with our son and (possible) future children.
Our son has already participated in two charitable events and I cannot wait to see what we do together next as a family.

Oh good! You posted it! I ordered it for Jack when you told me about it. The box is great. The quotes are words to live by. I was worried about it getting broken in transit, but it is packed well. I love all that you guys do as a family! I can't wait to see you guys soon! Perhaps over Christmas??
