Birthday party piggy banks
This summer we received a message from one of our friends whose daughter wanted to have a meaningful birthday party:
“My daughter, Talia, had a Monopoly party for her birthday earlier this year … and this was what she wrote in her invitation:
Since we’ll be wheeling & dealing at the party, instead of gifts, I’d really like to give a poor family in South Asia a chance for an income too by giving them their very own PIG-gy bank. If you need a receipt, you can donate at http://www.gfa.ca/gift/browse/from-the-stable/ (check out the piggy video there too) or you can just bring your pennies to the party. It’s not quite Park Place, but I like pigs 🙂
“She ended up collecting enough for 3 pairs of pigs, plus some chicks! Thanks for giving her the opportunity to share her heart for Asia with her friends.”
Thank you, Talia, for making caring for others a part of your birthday!
