Light Up: a donating piggy bank

Arun Mota, a design student at Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design, conceived of a piggy bank that donates a portion of your savings to a cause.

The project nicely ties together the cause (electricity for rural areas) and the form (a jar that lights up when you put coins in it). I also love the feasible simplicity and clarity of the mechanics of the piggy bank and the donation system. I want one!
