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
- Pediatric cancer patients and survivors paint and decorate piggy banks.
- Sponsors adopt the piggy banks for an initial $25 fee and begin collecting donations.
- 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.
