It’s Financial Literacy Month!

It’s April 1st and that means we’re kicking off Financial Literacy Month! We’ll be sharing initiatives throughout the month from our friends around the country.

From the Council for Economic Education:

We’re excited to let you know that to kick off Financial Literacy Month, on April 1st we will be launching our #MySavingsTip Campaign to inform and inspire kids to understand and take control of their financial lives. Participants will share personal savings tips on social media to inform and inspire kids to understand and take control of their financial lives.
Please visit our Twitter and Facebook pages to read their #MySavingsTip and share with others.
