What do children’s bank accounts and the Berenstein Bears have in common?

As a mortgage lender, I get to meet many great people.  Often, they are smart, savvy and educated, yet struggle with financial concepts like budgeting and money management.  We believe in empowering our customers to make wise financial decisions, and part of that empowerment involves educating kids so they can grow up to be confident about how to manage their money.

For the next couple of months, we are running a special incentive to help parents teach their kids about smart money management in a fun, creative way.  Just stop in one our locations and open a minor savings account, and they will receive a free piggy bank, along with the Berenstain Bears’ Trouble With Money!  It’s a wonderful story that opens up a fun dialogue about money.  We look forward to seeing you and your children soon!
