If you’re looking for a free pay day, Thursday, May 28, 2015 just may be your big break.

A house of piggy banks will be constructed in downtown Vancouver symbolizing the growing amount of money that Vancouverites are spending on housing costs.

Over 300 cash-filled piggy banks will be given away to surprised and delighted Metro Vancouverites throughout the morning. Lucky commuters will win cash extras up to $1,000. There is no catch – just simple financial help.

The organization behind the giveaway is currently a secret, but will be disclosed tomorrow during the event.

With Canadians facing growing financial pressure, including rising housing costs, big mortgage payments often take precedence over other financial priorities.

Vancouverites are encouraged to stop by and nab their own piggy bank – it might be enough for your morning coffee or you might just walk away with the big bucks.

Long lineups are expected, so if you plan to attend we recommend going early. The event will be a first come, first serve and participants will need to sign a waiver before approaching the piggy bank house. If you’re unable to attend, you can follow the event online by searching #VancouverGetsIt.
