BizKid participant to be honored at White House
WASHINGTON (4/4/08)--Biz Kid Raphael Spiro, founder of Bedsidebooks, is one of 10 youngsters in America who will receive presidential recognition for his social entrepreneurship. The award will be presented at the White House on April 16th during Financial Literacy Month, according to the Washington Credit Union League. Bedsidebooks is a program of student volunteers who collect, sort and deliver recycled books to needy members of the community. BizKid$, a public television series that aims to teach youth about financial literacy, is garnering international attention (News Now Sept. 20). The show has an underwriting partnership with JA Worldwide and America's Credit Unions. About 140 organizations, including credit unions and credit union leagues, provide funding for the show. About one-third of the show's total underwriting budget was provided by the National Credit Union Foundation. BizKid$ has been positioned as family viewing in a number of markets, which encourages kids to watch the show with their parents.
