"There are many ways of bringing a very young child into philanthropy. One technique we like is a Moonjar with three coin slots, one labeled "spend", another "save", and a third (sic) "share".
Excerpt from "The Art of Giving" (2010) by Charles Bronfman & Jeffrey Solomon
"In light of today's economy it has become increasingly important that our youth develop strong financial habits. As an educator, I am so very pleased to have the chance to use Moonjar Moneyboxes as a teaching tool to encourage financial literacy. It is essential that our students learn healthy financial management habits and a sense of social responsibility that will benefit them their entire lives. My students are excited about the fun and educational Moonjars. They are an amazing tool to spark dialogue regarding achieving goals and sharing with others. Thank you for this opportunity!"
Ms. Elizabeth Greer, Gr. 3 teacher at Forest Hills School in Saint John, New Brunswick
"The Moonjar for our family has been the first step towards instilling a spirit of generosity and giving in a way that was practical and easy to understand for preschoolers. It has been important for us as parents to model a giving heart to our children and the Moonjar and its story is the ideal tool to teach children the importance of saving, the fun of spending, and the joy of giving. Thanks for a great product!!"

Congratulations on your success. I am thrilled to say that it is a big success in my house. My daughters -11 and 7 year old are learning so much about saving and sharing. They have always enjoyed the spending part!!
Best wishes for the future,
"As an advocate of financial literacy, I consider the Moonjar to be a great product to help kids start on the right financial path. We have the Classic Moonjar for our little one and we couldn't be happier with the product thus far. As well, Moonjar Canada has been a pleasure to work with."
"Dear Moonjar Canada,
Thank you very much for being such a great supporter of the Community Winter Carnival. By donating Moonjar products, it really helped us cover our costs. The day was a big success and our busiest year ever... It is generosity and partnership from our neighboring business that helped make the day such a great successs.
Thank you for making a difference!
