South LA America Saves Team with Sammy Rabbit
South LA Saves teamed with Sammy Rabbit and a host of other partners to celebrate America Saves Week 2015! The purpose of the event was to celebrate, encourage and teach children and their families to dream big and to get in the habit of saving money to make those big dreams come true!
Children and families in attendance were treated to a reading of the storybook Sammy’s Big Dream!
Sammy Rabbit and children’s author Sam X Renick also taught kids their signature song Get in the Habit!
The author and Sammy shared with kids that if they get in the habit of saving it is predictable that their stash of savings will grow and grow and grow. That will have them more prepared to make big dreams come true!
Kids also took the Dream Big Pledge, promising to immediately get in the habit of saving and reading!
The event was also supported by New York Life, Wells Fargo, State Farm, and the California Credit Union.
It was a wonderful event of dynamic, interactive financial education, financial literacy, goal setting, planning and dreaming big!
