The Pentecostal Credit Union, recently released a rap video to encourage young people to become more money wise and less susceptible to the temptations to spend money on things they don’t need.
The video, entitled Gimme Dat has come out at an opportune time as a recent BBC news report found that 16million people in the UK have savings of just £100 or less.
Gimme Dat features PCU-Money, the Shadow Youth Board of the Pentecostal Credit Union, and female Christian rapper Tneek who wrote the track.
She said, “It was great to work on this project and let young people know it’s a good thing to be money wise. There’s so much temptation for young people to spend – whether it’s to copy the lifestyles of celebrities like Kim Khardashian or to buy things that they don’t need to live up to a fashionable image. Gimme Dat, brings these issues to the fore and calls on young people to give careful consideration to how they spend their cash.”
The PCU Youth Shadow Board hope Gimme Dat starts a conversation amongst young people about money matters and plays a part in helping them use their money wisely.
Shane Bowes, CEO of the PCU stated “We don’t want young people to fall into the trap of not being financially aware, especially following the BBC report stating that millions of adults have little or no savings. We have to help our youth plan for their financial future, that’s why PCU have supported our Youth Shadow Board’s Gimme Dat initiative.
“They are using music to send a much needed message that its important for young people to increase their financial awareness, become money wise and save their money for their future.”
The Pentecostal Credit Union are supporting the release of Gimme Dat by giving free money talks to youth groups and youth events in London and the Midlands.
