Today I would love for you to meet a new friend of mine, Danielle from Bankaroo. Danielle is a young teen who created her own website and phone app to help kids and teens manage their money! Talk about being an awesome role model!
AND… She gives away the use of her money management software for free! Talk about giving back and sincere generosity!
I was very impressed to meet Danille and her dad, Etay and wanted to make sure that you got to meet them too. I’m sure your child will benefit greatly from Danielle’s Bankaroo app for sure!
Growing up in the silicon valley, Danielle was always fascinated by computers and their endless possibilities. She likes to go on walks with her dad, Etay, and pitch ideas to him. One day, they were out shopping and she wanted dad to get her something using her chore money. Dad said she already used it for something else, but they couldn’t remember what for. This was the inception of the Bankaroo idea.
Danielle wanted to build a website and a mobile application that would help parents teach their kids about the value of money, as well as help them manage their allowance, gift and chores money. She came up with Bankaroo, a free service that is a virtual bank for kids money, where they can save up for goals, use money for different things while their parents can add allowance, chore and gift money into their virtual account. The real money stays in the parents’ wallets, but the virtual representation of it is very real.
Danielle came up with the functionality and the design and dad developed the website and app. Danielle was the QA specialist and critique, and also did all the tutorials you can see on the site. The service is completely free and is a service for the community and for all kids out there.
Here’s a video Danielle created for us to show off her passion: ENJOY! ;o)
Cheers….Amanda van der Gulik…Excited Life Enthusiast! ;o)
