Adopt a pig

Adopt a Pig is a program designed to help children and their families cope as they face their greatest challenge, fighting cancer.  Proceeds benefit a variety of support services and coping mechanisms for patients and their families.

How the program works

  1. Pediatric cancer patients and survivors paint and decorate piggy banks.
  2. Sponsors adopt the piggy banks for an initial $25 fee and begin collecting donations.
  3. When each bank is full, the change inside is counted and a check is sent to Adopt a Pig.  Sponsors keep the piggy bank as a personal reminder of a child’s fight against cancer.
