While many children do look forward to receiving Christmas presents, the holidays is also about the spirit of giving, whether to our loved ones or those in need.

This Christmas, the Investor and Financial Education Council (IFEC) invites kindergarten and primary school students to take on the “Santa Challenge”— to set goals and achieve them through your very own action plans. Let's keep learning during the pandemic and be a money smart Santa while enjoying the festivities!
