Those who accused 21 Savage of being fiscally irresponsible should probably look towards recanting their statement. The celebrity father recently announced his plans to help kids understand the basics of finances through his “21 Savage Bank Account” campaign for kids.
“I started the 21 Savage Bank Account Campaign and it’s to help kids learn how to save money and make money, and open up bank accounts for kids,” Savage said during his latest talk with Ellen DeGeneres.
According to the campaign’s platform, GetSchooled.com, “Young people with bank accounts are more likely to understand the basics of money and have better savings for education.” It is highly recommended that parents open a savings account in their children’s name when they are young and teach them the basics of finance.
21 Savage hopes to help underprivileged kids whose parents may not have the funds to open a bank account for them. The rapper donated $21,000 so that 21 teens can have bank accounts worth $1,000.
