Pennies for Pigs, Pigs for Haiti

     Last Spring, students at Stedman Elementary School in Denver, CO found a unique way to help their friends in Haiti rebuild after the earthquake.  Children throughout the school gathered their spare change and worked to raise money to purchase pigs for families in Haiti.  After a school-wide effort, Stedman surpassed their fundraising goal and earned $1,400 for the Lambi Fund of Haiti.   To celebrate their efforts, Stedman's principal kissed a pig! Watch the movie below to see how BIG things can happen when you start with a simple idea and the desire to help.
