The Disclosures' Kids' Album Climbs the Amazon Charts
MADISON, Wis, (12/13/13)--Less than 24 hours after the credit union singing duo, The Disclosures, announced the release of its financial education album for kids, the album was climbing the charts of hot new releases on Amazon, achieving the No. 2 spot Thursday on Amazon's educational category, ahead of "Sesame Street."
 
The album, "The Secret to Being Rich," was No. 14 in the top 20 hot new releases on the Amazon's general children's music chart Thursday and was even ahead of "Sesame Street," said Christopher Morris, who moonlights as a Disclosure when he's not working as director of communications for the National Credit Union Foundation.
 
"We are humbled by the response to 'The Secret to Being Rich,' both on Amazon and especially across the credit union movement," said The Disclosures. Morris and Chad Helminak, Web and member development strategist for the Wisconsin Credit Union League, make up the duo.
 
The album includes 10 original songs about financial literacy concepts such as saving, responsible spending, the importance of charity, the dangers of "too good to be true" advertising, and how loans work. It also features discussion materials for teachers and parents.
