Today, Virtual Piggy was named Winner of The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval for 2013 in the category of websites! We’re extremely honored and excited to receive this endorsement, which has been given to websites like DisneyFamily.com and MoshiMonsters.com in past years.
The National Parenting Center was founded in 1989, with the goal of providing comprehensive and responsible parenting advice. Their Seal of Approval is used to endorse the best products and services as determined by their panel of parent and children reviewers. This means the products they endorse are thoroughly tested, and parent approved.

April is Financial Literacy Month! Here at Virtual Piggy, teaching young people financial responsibility through our free service is a primary focus of our mission, so we’re very happy to help promote this important initiative.
The event started in 2000, when The Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy chose April as "Financial Literacy for Youth Month". In 2004, the United States Senate passed an official resolution to recognize April as Financial Literacy Month.
One fun note: Canada also has an official Financial Literacy Month, though it takes place in November.
Why all the attention? Here are some key statistics:This entry was tagged
