Charity Auction Launch confirmed dates

We’ve all come along way since I asked for volunteers to paint us a SwearPig!

Back in November 2014, I had this idea to reach out to the artistic community and see if they would decorate a SwearPig for our charity launch, with 85% (changed to 90%) of proceeds going directly to Macmillan Cancer Support.

The response was overwhelming (and a little scary!) I had 67 enthusiastic artists want to get involved. I thought “Great! I can get 50 artists to decorate 2 Pigs each and get them numbered” Then I thought again, mainly about how much it would cost in Pigs, packaging, postage and time.” Due to starting off the business on a next to nothing budget, I opted for 10 artists painting 2 SwearPigs each.

From November to just now, I have liaised with all artists. They have all been brilliant by keeping me up to date with their progress. I have posted their progress all over our social media sites.

The results have been outstanding!

To date, I have had 19 pigs returned. It would have been 20 but 1 broke. Don’t worry! I went back to the studio and had another one made! Bless. Rachel is busy as we speak!

The auction will start on eBay on Monday 13th April 2015 at approx 7pm. Each auction will last for 3 days and end at approx 7pm on the 3rd day.
