Kiss the Pig Missions Fundraiser 06/10/2010
Shared by Lt. Kristina Sjogren
The Family Outreach Committee of the Cedar Rapids, Iowa Corps organized a fun competition that challenged the congregation to get more involved in supporting The Salvation Army’s world missions. The corps took a silent survey to nominate three corps members who they would like to see kiss a pig. For six weeks, three counter kettles labeled with those individuals’ pictures were on display. The congregation voted for the individual they would like to see kiss the pig by depositing money into the kettle displaying that person’s picture. The kettle containing the most money at the end of the six weeks determined which person would have to kiss the pig! At a family picnic after the Sunday Holiness meeting on September 26, the pig was revealed and since Lt. Michael Sjogren’s kettle had the most money in it, he had to kiss the pig. Through this fun and memorable fundraiser, the corps raised $275.00 for World Services!
