Sammy Rabbit’s first animated music video, S-A-V-E, has families and personal finance experts going gaga! Unlike Lady Gaga’s controversial American Idol appearance, Sammy Rabbit’s performance is well suited for children of all ages. This visually engaging video features colorful imagery set to a gospel style sing-and-clap-along song that cleverly inspires children and their families to start saving their money.
An infectious and energizing approach to what is typically viewed as a boring topic--financial education—this one minute and forty second video presents several important ideas for saving money. These include: (1) reaching goals and making dreams come true whether saving for a bicycle or going to college; (2) saving for unexpected emergencies; (3) enabling us to assist others in need (4) helping us obtain both our wants and needs; (5) encouraging our savings to grow and compound; and (6) offering more personal freedom. For all these reasons, the video’s star--Sammy Rabbit—emphasizes that saving is a smart lifestyle choice that makes us strong and happy.
According to It’s a Habit Company, Inc. (IAHC) founder and award winning children author, Sam X Renick, the response to the video has been “incredible… “We were particularly delighted with the Facebook posting of bestselling personal finance author David Bach, the Automatic Millionaire, who declared “I Love it. It is awesome!”
SAVE is just one of over twenty songs that IAHC has produced in assembling one of the world’s largest audio collections of financial education and character building music that includes Big Old Dream, Rainy Day, and Anyone Can be Rich. The company has plans for over 50 more songs including three currently in production: Fired Up, Ready to Go, Tortillas are Great, and Dance and Soar.
“We are proud to collaborate with Sammy Rabbit and It’s a Habit in sponsoring this innovative money management tool for families to enjoy for free,” explained MyMoneyEd.org founder, and consumer finance expert Dr. Robert D. Manning. “It is crucial to involve parents, grandparents, and other family members to discuss as early as possible the importance of smart money habits and related lifestyle choices. Sammy Rabbit songs and stories make this challenge so much more fun and easy to accomplish.”
