Tess Vigeland: But wait, before we leave the lemonade stand for good, let’s get to this week’s Marketplace Money Piggy Award.

Our little blue plastic friend is heading to… Where else? Ann Arbor. ‘Cause when your lemonade business has that kind of swaggah, you need an appropriate cash container. So Molly, Lucy, you each have a piggy coming to you. I suggest you start saving up for the MBAs you will no doubt be pursuing.

And just a reminder to the rest of you who covet our blue plastic friend, there is a random number up on the chalkboard wall in my office. When we hit that number of likes on the Marketplace Money Facebook page that person gets a pig. You know you want one.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible. 

Your donation today powers the independent journalism that you rely on. For just $5/month, you can help sustain Marketplace so we can keep reporting on the things that matter to you.
