Holly M, Plymouth, IA:
I am a mother of one biological child and several foster children. I have always used my Discover card to help build a better tomorrow for my daughter and foster children. I thought up an idea and acted upon it. Whenever my family reached $50.00, I did one of two things with it. Depending on how many kids were in our household, I split it evenly between the kids. Now, I did not give them the cash! I am trying to teach my kids discipline with money. For my daughter, I gave her savings bonds. She loves to receive them (she is three)! She has a pink piggy bank that she puts her bonds into when they come in the mail. As for my foster children, depending on who I have at the time, I cash it and turn it into local business gift cards for their families. Most of the time I give grocery store gift cards so the family can have access to good food. To ensure that the family spends it “wisely” I go with on a visit and surprise them with the gift from their biological child. It is always a rewarding experience! Thank-you Discover card for your generosity! My children thank you!
