Great Pocket Money Day - children opening their own shop
In 2019 GoLittle together with Danske Bank organised the first ‘Great Pocket Money Day’ in Denmark. The purpose of ‘Great Pocket Money Day’ is for children to learn how to make their own pocket money by opening their own small ‘shop’, where they can sell everything from homemade bracelets and clay figures to magic tricks and second-hand toys.
Money week - lectures for 7th-9th graders
Every year in March, employees from Danske Bank in Denmark pack their school bags and visit schools throughout the country to teach 7th-9th grades about money, personal finances and digital security. This is done through teaching, films and competitions, which are tailored to give students a good introduction to money and digital security.
