Get to Know Cosmo

Cosmo, the Redstone STAR Club mascot, loves visiting local schools to get children excited about saving!


Are you familiar with Cosmo, the big and bright mascot of our STAR Club®? You may have seen him at a local elementary school for their Parade of Readers or around town enjoying some great Redstone Discounts!® Cosmo loves to teach children about the importance of saving and how to manage their money.

We were able to catch him for a brief Q&A session, read on to learn more about Cosmo and STAR Club!


Q: Cosmo, how did you get your name?

A: Cosmo means ‘order.’ I teach young children that order is important when it comes to money. You have to save first, so you will have money to buy that special thing you want. The name also reminds me of space and science…and my birthplace, Huntsville, Alabama, has a major role in both.

Q: What’s your favorite holiday?

A: My favorite holiday by far is Youth Month! Youth month is a credit-union-wide initiative to instill smart money habits in children through a month-long campaign. We celebrate Youth Month in April. This year’s theme is Credit Union Strong: Pump Up Your Savings.

Q: I see you’re holding weights; do you keep in shape?Cosmo stays in shape, health wise and financial wise!

A: Yes, I keep in shape, and I keep my finances in shape. I add my birthday money to my savings and any extra money I earn from doing chores. Then, I spend wisely on things I enjoy and share with others.

Q: How can I join you and ‘pump up my savings?’

A: Come to any Redstone branch with your parent or legal guardian to get started today.

Cosmo loves adding new members to STAR Club! Children receive a free piggy bank and once it is full, can stop by any of our branches to use the coin counting machine for free.  We also host a variety of cool educational programs throughout the year. If you know a child who would like to join, visit any of our branches or call us at 800-234-1234.
