MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) - A local principal follows through on a promise to his students.  He had to pucker up and kiss a pig!

Rodney Richardson, principal of Horizon Elementary in Madison, said he would kiss a pig if students raised $1,500 for Heifer International.  They exceeded their goal.

Heifer International sends animals to villages and countries to help end poverty.

Richardson said he has no regrets.

"Once they came to me with this idea of kissing the pig and they were all excited about it, I was all in. I'm all in," he said.

The event was part of the school's International Festival.
