If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. – The Dalai Lama



Overview

We believe that this simple product, Piggy, can truly make the world a better and more compassionate place.

Piggy helps teach kids about charitable giving, with the hopes of inspiring new generations of caring, sharing, philanthropic citizens.

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.

With 12,000 children born each day in the US, imagine the social impact if just a fraction of them learned powerful lessons of gratefulness and kindness to others.


Using Piggy

We suggest that children learn to set aside 10% of their income to charity. Parents can discuss with their kids about who they would want to help most. When the baby bank is filled, a special event can be planned to deliver the money to the charity, or a trip to the bank and post office to mail a check.

The goal is to create positive feelings of doing good will make an indelible mark upon their character and place philanthropy as an important and intrinsic aspect of their life.

 

Charitable Giving

It is a great opportunity to choose a charity to support, and something that can be fun to plan with your child. But all charities are not created equal. Despite good intentions and deserving recipients, some charitable groups are more “efficient” than others. You should be aware of how much of your donation actually gets to those in need.

While most charities have to spend money to raise money, some allocate the majority of their income to this, which in the end mostly benefits for-profit organizations (like party planners, gourmet caterers, and banquet halls). And in some cases CEOs of non-profits can earn millions of dollars in annual salary.

According to the American Institute of Philanthropy, the best charities:

• should spend no more than $25 to raise $100 of public support
• should not hold excessive assets in reserve
• should willingly disclose their financial information.

It is every man’s obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it. – Albert Einstein


Nothing special here–just remove Piggy from its packaging and you are ready to go.
But while you are here, check out these other inspirational quotations:


I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.
– Maya Angelou

Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival.
– Dalai Lama

A good heart is better than all the heads in the world. – Edward Bulwer-Lytton

To care for anyone else enough to make their problems one’s own, is ever the beginning of one’s real ethical development.
– Felix Adler

The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Interdependence is and ought to be as much the ideal of man as self-sufficiency. Man is a social being. – Mahatma Gandhi


On November 21st, 2008 our lives changed forever–for the better. Our daughter, Isla Rey, was born and we became first-time parents. Now responsible for guiding a new life, we wanted to be able to teach compassion, kindness, and caring (among so many other things).

We also want the world in which our daughter grows up to be a Good place. Inspired by this, Piggy was born. We like to imagine that such a simple object can help other parents teach their children, ultimately creating new generations of caring humanitarians.


In separateness lies the world’s great misery, in compassion lies the world’s true strength. – Buddha
