new savings account for minors. The Munny Bunny Accounts have drawn coverage on two television stations, says the credit union. The account comes with gifts--a keepsake munny journal and plush munny bunny for ages 12 and under. The munny journal is filled with easy-to-understand information about long-term savings planning to get kids hopping down the money trail to a lifetime of sound money management, said the credit union. "We want all our member moms and dads to start WSECU Munny Bunny savings accounts for their children," said Kristina Walters, WSECU vice president of marketing and business development. "It is more than just cute. The journals are filled with information that educates parents about starting young to save smart." Financial advisor Brad Dugdale created www.munnyjournal.com and partnered with WSECU for distribution throughout Washington state. KGO-TV featured the program on its "View from the Bay" show, and KCTS-TV spotlighted the program on its "About the Money" show.
