The 2015 MetLife Foundation Annual Report 2015 

The greatest predictor of whether a person is financially healthy is whether he or she is a planner. Planners don’t necessarily produce detailed household budgets (although some do), but they have the general ability to project into the future, set goals, and make conscious choices accordingly. After a period of research, development, and consultation with financial experts, Sesame Workshop launched Dream, Save, Do to seed a “planner” mentality in children by encouraging them first to understand the basic difference between needs and wants. Through songs on savings and delayed gratification, story lines, games, and activities, Dream, Save, Do leads children and their caregivers – in an entertaining way – to dream of what they really want to spend money on, then save up for those goals, and then spend the money, after they have it, on that goal. The program includes print materials, comics, community engagement events, workshops, classrooms, songs, and fairs, all featuring Sesame’s beloved global and local characters. Sesame has launched Dream, Save, Do in four countries – Brazil, China, India, Mexico – and is rolling it out in Chile, Japan, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates in 2016.
