Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Department of the Treasury's Bureau of the Public Debt has launched a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/readysavegrow) to highlight its new savings campaign, Ready.Save.Grow. The Facebook page provides another channel for the Treasury Department to encourage more Americans to save, while informing them about affordable, safe and convenient Treasury savings options.

"Our goal is to provide helpful savings information where many of us spend most of our waking hours – online," said Jerry Kelly, national director of Treasury's Ready.Save.Grow. campaign. "Facebook, along with Twitter and YouTube, allows us to listen to users' struggles and successes with saving, while also bringing Ready.Save.Grow. resources to people who are looking for new and supplementary ways to save for a home purchase, a child’s education, retirement or another dream."

Digital savings bonds offer a convenient way to save. They can be bought for as little as $25, after setting up a free account on TreasuryDirect.gov, a secure, web-based system operated by the Bureau of the Public Debt since 2002.

For more information about the Ready.Save.Grow. campaign and Treasury savings options, visit www.treasurydirect.gov/readysavegrow. The Ready.Save.Grow. campaign can also be found on Twitter (www.twitter.com/readysavegrow) and YouTube (www.youtube.com/treasurydirect).
