Philbert proceeds bound for Haiti

The fund-raising pig in Reading Terminal Market will turn over cash to Red Cross.

Philbert proceeds bound for Haiti


Effective immediately and until further notice, all donations to Philbert -- the stone pig sculpture at Reading Terminal Market -- will be turned over to the American Red Cross' Haiti fund.

Update (1/19/10): A $1,000 check, made out to the American Red Cross-Haitian Relief Fund, was dropped into the till. The total raised so far, says market manager Paul Steinke, is $1,915. Not bad, given that most Philbert donations are in coin.
