Money plays an important role in many of life's big moments.
From your first savings account all the way to retirement – these events mark new chapters in our lives.
KSPS and STCU teamed up to share how we can all handle these big moments with financial savvy.
Money Moment #1: Responsibility.
In the first Money Moment, we see Owen go through the ups and downs of saving for a special scooter — it's hard not to spend money as soon as you get it. Soon Owen learns with the right plan you can make your goals a reality.

Money Moment #2: Sharing.
Everyone has something to share that can help make the world a better place. Sometimes we give our money to causes we believe in like the Humane Society. Sometimes we give our time by helping at a school food drive.
We can also share our special talents like Owen does. He saw a need and used his creativity to help his neighbor, Mrs. Naples with her dog Archie. Sharing can happen with time, talent, or treasure.
