What is “Piggies For The Cause”?
It is a community-wide, fundraising initiative designed as a crash course in successful fundraising, which educates kids on the importance of giving back to their communities, particularly children in need. These learned skills will be translatable to their future entrepreneurial endeavors.
All proceeds raised by Piggies for the Cause go directly to funding the Hogs House to be built in Baton Rouge.

A Hogs House is a free place for families to stay while their child receives treatment at the hospital.
