Go Viral with Your Savings Goal

February 15, 2012

By Kristina Wedseltoft, America Saves Intern

 

Today starts our official America Saves Week picture campaign! People save more successfully when then have a goal in mind. That’s why we’ve created these posters so you can put your savings goal into perspective and share it. You can be saving for something large like retirement or something smaller like an emergency fund. No matter what you’re saving for, saving is always important! What follows is a set of easy instructions to participate!

Here are the instructions:

  1. Download the poster (Military Version)
  2. Write your savings goal
  3. Take a picture
  4. Post it to our Facebook wall (Facebook.com/AmericaSaves or Facebook.com/MilitarySaves) and tweet us at @Americasaves or at @Militarysaves with the hashtag #ASW2012

It’s as simple as that! The poster campaign will go through America Saves Week ending on February 26, 2012. We encourage everyone to participate and to encourage everyone you know to participate as well. America Saves Week is only 4 days away!

With little-to-no money in the bank and living on a limited income with her adult daughter, Sharon wasn’t sure if building up savings for her future was even possible. “At my age, to put debts behind me would be a relief,” she said, but she wasn’t quite sure how to even get started with a savings plan.
