Guluck teaches the value of saving money and spending it wisely

Guluck is a new site in beta which promises to help children save money in a socially responsible way, in a way which is motivating and fun for kids. 

     Children are encouraged to make wise decisions in how they save their money and are rewarded with badges. You can also get family and friends to contribute to their piggy bank through Paypal, making it a useful tool for gift giving. 

     Although the site is designed more as a way for parents to help their children, I think it could be useful to use this in the classroom as well when teaching children about personal finance and managing their money.
