Hurricane Matthew Relief Campaign: 7for6
In the wake of Hurricane Matthew, our "Without Walls" Community Development Project in Les Cayes, Haiti was hit hard. The community, the families it helps, our employees, and the pigs themselves have been distressed and affected. This project provides food, jobs and economic development for this community through a micro-finance program.
Needless to say, the pigs are the vital component to this project's success. Hurricane Matthew's direct impact on the nation's South Providence ended up killing 6 of our pigs. In addition, we've also received updates that the roof of the facility has completely blown off, and the guard house we have on site has been damaged. Therefore, in order to maintain the sustainability of this project, our employee's job security and thus their ability to support their families and children, we have started this Campaign, "7for6."
"It was only $7 but hey I would've probably spent that on coffee or something else!"

Simply put, we're asking everyone to contribute $7 for the 6 replacement pigs.
We've set a goal at $3,000.
1 Piglet = $100
1 Mature Pig (Sold at Maturity) = $500
6 x 500 = 3,000
Therefore, the retail and real impact on this project from the loss of pigs is $3,000!
We will continue to fundraise for additional construction repairs on site and with the hope of expanding the project.
We don't want to respond with sufficiency, but abundance.
e want to not just replace what was lost, but double down and provide exceedingly more moving forward!
