    We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals.

    Now, we have #GivingTuesday—a global day dedicated to giving back.

    Make LifeSmarts your #GivingTuesday cause.

    Help us make a positive impact on the next generation of consumers and workers to enter the marketplace.

    What you can do:

    • Give a personal gift
    • Encourage others to give by sharing the LifeSmarts story with friends, family, and colleagues through your social media channels (See our #GivingTuesday toolkit for messages you can use and more links to help you involve your network!)
    • Ask your company or organization to give a generous gift

    The need:

    Today’s young adults are:

    • Graduating from college with more than twice as much debt than the previous generation of college grads
    • Spending more than they earn
    • Going into debt deeper and faster than their parents
    • Lacking basic knowledge of interest rates, inflation, and risk diversification

    At LifeSmarts we help youth shape a brighter future by educating teens about personal finance, health and safety, their consumer rights and responsibilities, the environment, and technology.
