'Thank My Piggy Bank' Fin Ed Song Unveiled
MADISON, Wis. (4/3/13)--Kicking off National Financial Literacy Month and in advance of National Credit Union Youth Week April 21-27, the credit union music duo The Disclosures have released a new song and music video to teach kids about money.

Credit union music duo The Disclosures have released a new song and video for National Financial Literacy Month and National Credit Union Youth Week, April 21-27. (Photo provided by The Disclosures) "Thank My Piggy Bank" introduces children to the basic concept of saving. It is the first single from The Disclosures' forthcoming financial education album for kids due to be released later this year.

"Financial education is a key part of what credit unions are all about and it's embedded in their structure," said band member Christopher Morris, whose day job is as director of communications with the National Credit Union Foundation. "As Youth Week approaches, we hope this song and video proves useful for credit union organizations to leverage in their outreach."

"Thank My Piggy Bank" is available on most digital music stores including iTunes, Amazon, and CDbaby. The video is available for viewing and embedding on YouTube.  Use the link.

They released their first album in 2011 entitled "(Hey, We're) The Disclosures"--composed of songs that focus on credit union history and philosophy. Since then, Morris and fellow Disclosure Chad Helminak, Web and member development strategist for the Wisconsin Credit Union League, have presented educational sessions and music performances to credit unions, chapters, trade associations and vendors nationwide.

For their next project, The Disclosures will address an area that where consumers often have problems: personal finance. The pop/rock album will entirely focus on youth financial education.
