On ‘Great Pocket Money Day’, children can open their own ‘shop’ in three shopping centres in Roskilde, Aarhus and Odense. Each shopping centre will make a table available for the children free of charge. If you don’t live near one of the shopping centres, or if it is ‘sold out’, you can simply open a ‘shop’ with some friends on the street where you live.
We hope that a lot of children will have a fantastic experience and earn their own pocket money on ‘Great Pocket Money Day’. And, together with Danske Bank, we can hopefully help to facilitate an important dialogue about money and finances between children and parents in a fun and different way.Morten Resen

A new survey (available in Danish only) conducted by YouGov for Danske Bank recently showed that three of four parents in the Nordic countries give their children aged 8-14 years pocket money, and that almost every other parent gives their children pocket money to teach them that you have to do something to earn money.
The survey also showed that seven out of ten parents regularly talk to their children about money, but that they are looking for tools to help them doing so.
At Danske Bank, improving the understanding of money among children and young adults is a key focus area. And pocket money has proved to be an excellent tool to have a chat with your children about the value of money. We are therefore looking forward to supporting ‘Great Pocket Money Day’ together with GoLittle which has a unique ability to engage families in a fun, informal and inclusive way.Dorthe Eckhoff
