Commenting on the partnership, Sky Brown said: “I’m so excited to be teaming up with Visa and gohenry – I think it’s so cool that gohenry gives kids and teens their own Visa prepaid debit card. The way Visa and gohenry help inspire independence in young people to really go out there, experience the world and achieve anything is something that I’m totally on board with.”
To celebrate Tokyo 2020, gohenry has issued a Visa Olympic-themed collection of five new Visa prepaid debit cards inspired by this year’s Games. The new cards will be available from 22nd July 2021 until the end of the year, featuring the official Tokyo 2020 mascots and designs inspired by the host country. With Connecting to Tomorrow being one of the themes of the Games, Visa blended elements rooted in Japan’s history with new inventions and cityscape, to show how the past links to the present and future in three of the card designs. The remaining two designs seek to convey the joy and excitement of the Games through the use of the official mascots.
gohenry’s CEO, Alex Zivoder, said: “Our aim is to set children and teens up for a financially fit future. Through our card and app, we encourage financial independence so kids can learn how to manage money in the real world. Our partnership with Team Visa and Sky Brown is an example of the aspirations we hope we encourage in our own customers through learning by doing. Sky is a skilled and professional young athlete who has inspired millions on her road to the Olympic Games. We’re excited to work with Visa to bring Tokyo 2020 and Olympians like Sky closer to our customers.”
