Gifting Sense helps children get ready for all the personal finance decisions that lie in their future, by teaching them how to think before they buy. Our workshops and tools allow children to experience first-hand that thinking before buying is a powerful and rewarding, not boring, life skill.
Personal finances are no different than team sports, to "win" you have to be both offensive (earn) and defensive (spend wisely). We teach kids how to practice strong financial defence. And when children learn how not to waste money, families experience increased harmony, improved financial well-being, and the knowledge that they are helping protect the planet. It's a win-win-win.
So let's give today's youth what has to be one of the best gifts ever: the habit of thinking before buying. We've made it easy and fun to do just that!
