This little piggy made a difference

These pigs may look cute but, like so many things with a deceptively dainty demeanour, they hide a significantly deeper meaning. Designed by new parents looking for a simple way to teach kindness, Piggy aims to create a more compassionate world by educating children about giving to charity from an early age. Each hand-cast ceramic set comprises

one large and one small piggy bank, allowing children to keep their personal savings in one and their charitable savings in another. Following the idea through to the end, the Piggy website also contains links to the American Institute of Philanthropy’s top-rated charities – ensuring these little pigs make the very most of everything they’re fed.
