Four years ago Sarah’s son was born with Spina Bifida which lead to multiple surgeries over the years. After each surgery he would suffer greatly from bladder spasms caused by a medical device that was used to drain his bladder while he healed. After going through this a few times Sarah decided that there needed to be something done. She didn’t want to see her son suffer any longer. After much trial and error Sarah invented a new product. This new product not only worked but it sped up his recovery time immensely. Now Sarah’s goal is different. She’s on a mission to help Spina Bifida children all over the world suffer less than they already have to.
The Piggy Box
The Piggy Box is a fun and easy way for kids to manage money while teaching them sound budgeting principles and instilling ideas of “giving” at an early age. The Piggy Box is a new way to save money for today’s kids. It rethinks and reimagines how and what we teach our kids about important life principles. We hope you agree.
