Formerly Homeless Youth Creates Game That Teaches Children Life Lessons

4x published Author and formerly homeless youth, AnTonia Jackson, launches Accountability Money Box™, a tabletop game designed to teach children three important life lessons

AnTonia Jackson has defied all odds, including being homeless at a tender age, to live her dream of helping people achieve their full potentials. The passionate youth advocate and entrepreneur recently created Accountability Money Box™ to teach children from age 6, three major life lessons, with the goal of building a new generation of responsible adults. The tabletop game has an interesting and hugely interactive gameplay, teaching kids how to count money, self-affirmation, and the benefits of doing something nice for someone else. 

AnTonia Jackson seems to have leaned towards a popular saying from world-renowned motivational speaker, Ben Carson, where he stated – “Happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give,” while creating the game. Over the years, several games and developers have emerged to offer fun and excitement to kids and other categories of players. However, very few have been developed to help mold children to become responsible members of society, a narrative AnTonia Jackson is looking to change with Accountability Money Box™. 

The game aims to help children cultivate the habit of reaching out to the needy even with the littlest of resources. Accountability Money Box™ aims to deliver long-lasting fun to players and their parents, with the parents required to assist in exchanging the play money for real money. 

Accountability Money Box™ is currently available on Kickstarter for interested backers in different parts of the world.
