The History of National Transfer Money to Your Daughter Day
While the earliest record of this national holiday is just three years ago, the origins of this important day go back to when the first wire transfer originated. The first wire transfer on record was completed in 1872 by Western Union. The first ATM was installed by Chemical Bank in 1969. Since then, ways to transfer money have expanded to include mobile money transfers, like the Sigue Pay app, and other peer-to-peer transfer methods.
Why do we celebrate transferring money to daughters? Each family has their own reasons for recognizing this holiday, but here are a few facts to inspire your transfer this year. The United Nations reports that globally, women are paid less than men by 23%. That means that women earn roughly 77 cents on the dollar to what men earn. Yet, women’s economic empowerment is shown to boost productivity, increase economic diversification, and benefit businesses.
Studies also show that women tend to invest their money back into the family: “Study after study, from Bangladesh to Haiti, from South Africa to the United States, shows that when women have controlled household spending, the money goes toward more family-targeted goods. Women pay back loans faster, and they share money within the family more fairly,” reports The Atlantic. Transferring money to your daughter is not only generous, it’s a great way to invest in your family’s financial health.
National Transfer Money to Your Daughter Day is a fun day when you can give your daughter a little extra spending money, help pay her bills, or celebrate in-person – official celebrations include taking your daughter shopping or giving her a gift card. And for sons: their National Transfer Money day is on October 13.
