We all know money isn’t the most important thing in the world.

But it does help with a lot of important things. That’s why we work so hard to make more… and spend less… and save as much as we can.

Prompted by pop culture blogger Dana Cortez with the trending hashtag #MoneyIsntImportantBut, these 10 people explain exactly why it’s money that makes the world go ‘round.

1. Someone said this would be worth it one day.
