💼 What's the Big Deal:
Baby Bonds create a foundation of savings from birth, enabling the opportunity to accumulate assets and build wealth over time.
While they may not fully close existing wealth gaps, they provide a crucial starting point and a structured way to initiate savings and financial growth for those who might not have had access otherwise.
Baby Bonds offer an avenue for individuals to start building wealth and assets, particularly important for those without similar opportunities.
