Virtual Piggy Signs Agreement with SpiritHoods Kids

Unique fashion company to offer safe youth payments

HERMOSA BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Virtual Piggy, Inc. (OTCBB: VPIG), an innovator in safe youth payments, today announced that it will provide its youth-friendly payment system to the youth oriented sub-brand of SpiritHoods, SpiritHoods Kids.

Virtual Piggy allows parents to set up a monthly allowance for their children and promotes financial management while empowering youth under 21 to make purchasing, saving and other money management decisions for themselves, within the boundaries setup by parents.

SpiritHoods offers detailed, high quality hoods inspired by the animal world. They have been profiled in Entrepreneur Magazine, Cosmopolitan, and LuckyKids, and are favorites of celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, and Bella Thorne. When you purchase a product from their ProBlue label, SpiritHoods donates 10% off net profits to a non-profit dedicated to the protection of that animal.

"SpiritHoods Kids is a brand all about personal expression and empowering kids to make a difference and help animals," said Abby Trainer, Director at SpiritHoods. "By adding Virtual Piggy as a payment option, kids can choose the SpiritHood that best expresses their personality, then check out on their own."

"Adding SpiritHoods Kids to our offerings provides us with a fashion-forward merchant that is popular with our consumers," said Virtual Piggy Founder and CEO Dr. Jo Webber. "We're excited to add them to our growing Virtual Piggy merchant base."

About SpiritHoods

Once upon a time, there were four friends--Chase Hamilton, Alexander Mendeluk, Marley Marotta and Ashley Haber--who all shared an adventurous lifestyle and a passion for the animal world. They wanted to find a way to share this lifestyle with the world.

Out of this desire, SpiritHoods, a company dedicated to community, self-expression and the protection of endangered animals was born.

Our story continues, and with every new tribe member comes a new adventure.
