Positive change begins with little steps
There are heroes everywhere and they come in all sizes. We've been inspired by stories of those 12 and under who help care for their communities, and we decided it's time to spotlight these heroes and their efforts.
Introducing: Little Heroes
We're gathering stories of kids 12 and under making a positive impact in their communities. Friends, family, parents, guardians, and even community members can nominate a child – Visions member or not – and we’ll pick a winner once every three months and help them with their cause.
Whether it’s a monetary donation, a gift card or items to help with their cause, or even a customized logo for their project – we’ll do our best to help shine a light on what they do and help them make an impact.*
Do you know a Little Hero?
Whether they shovel snow, mow lawns, or raise money for charitable causes, we want to honor them and help them with their work.
Congratulations to our newest Little Hero, Brantley!
Congratulations to Brantley for being selected as our most recent Little Hero!
Brantley is 6 years old and faces challenges head-on! He loves to volunteer at his aunt and uncle's homestead, where he learns how to cultivate fruits and vegetables and waters, prunes, harvests, and cans them. He also makes delicious meals from the harvests and loves sharing the bounty with members of his community in Watkins Glen, NY.
To help Brantley continue to spread positivity through healthy harvests, we presented him with a check for $100. He also received a $50 gift card for Barnes & Noble and two science experiment kits from Kirby Kangaroo.
Helping your Little Hero grow with Kirby Kangaroo
Did you know that Visions has a Youth Program? From birth to teens and beyond, we're here to help your child grow financially fit.
Kids 12 and under can join the Kirby Kangaroo Club, a program that comes with a youth savings account, special gifts for deposits over $5, and access to the Kirby Kangaroo site, packed with stories, games, coloring pages, and jokes. We even mail them a quarterly newsletter, birthday cards, and host special youth activities all year long!
Best of all, a Kirby Kangaroo account is a fully fledged Visions account. As your child grows up, they'll have access to everything Visions has to offer – checking accounts, debit cards, and a whole lot more.
