Mud Pie Introduces Exclusive March of Dimes Piggy Bank
Giftable Piggy Bank Supports The March of Dimes with $5 Donation
STONE MOUNTAIN, GA – (June 1, 2016) – New for 2016, Mud Pie is proud to introduce an exclusive March of Dimes Piggy Bank for the Give Today. Give Them Tomorrow. ® campaign, kicking-off in September. The classic ceramic bank, featuring a raised “love” footprint, will support the March of Dimes with a $5 donation for each sold, in addition to the ten cent donation for all socks and soft headbands.
The bank will arrive ready-to-give in specifically designed packaging perfect for effective stackable retailer presentations as well as individual gifting for consumers. Each package features the inspirational message, “There is no contribution too small that is cannot change the world. There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on the world.”
Baby Elizabeth, who has forever touched Mud Pie with her journey, continues to inspire products that raise awareness for premature birth - the number one killer of babies. Mud Pie believes that little by little with the help of retailers, we can make a bigger impact with this exclusive piggy bank and Elizabeth’s story.
A limited number of stores will receive one donation bank for FREE when they order a minimum of six March of Dimes Piggy Banks. These retailers are asked to display the donation bank at their register during the Give Today. Give Them Tomorrow. ® campaign to show support. Once the campaign ends, the stores will send the donations directly to the March of Dimes via the instructions that arrive with the bank.

“The March of Dimes is the nation’s leading non-profit organization devoted to maternal and infant health” said CEO of Mud Pie Marcia Miller. “It’s a cause that resonates with our retail partners and our consumers, making it a wonderful charity for Mud Pie to be paired with.”
Since developing a partnership with the March of Dimes in 2013, Mud Pie has donated a total of $362,500 to the cause - one dime at a time. The alliance between the companies has been so well received, that Mud Pie has guaranteed an additional $150,000 donation for 2016.
