GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 12—INSURANCE

, , , ,

INSURANCE…an agreement by which a person pays a company and the company promises to pay money if the person becomes ill, injured or dies or to pay for the value of property lost or damaged. Life, health, car, and home are some of the most needed types. Get whatever insurance you can afford as quickly as you can, even if it is only $10,000 worth, because $10,000 worth of insurance you have when you need it, is worth more than $100,000 had planned to buy. See you next week!

GOOD MONEY GIFT WEEK 12—HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

, , , ,

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. We believe affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities. If you have not already given at least $7.00 this week to someone or something you care about, I believe that money donated to Habitat for Humanity, https://www.habitat.org/  is a good gift for a good cause. See you next week!

 

GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 11—WILL

, ,

WILL…a legal document in which a person states who should receive his or her possessions after he or she dies. It makes sense that anyone over 18 does a will. The common excuses I hear are: “It just me, or I don’t own anything, or I don’t want to think about dying.” Even if you’re “alone,” you should still want to leave a legacy. If you do not own anything, follow my plan and soon you will. Last, not thinking about dying does not stop it from happening. If you have a family it is doubly important that you prepare a will, so if you have not done one, “get ‘er done now:” no excuses. See you next week!

GOOD MONEY GIFT WEEK 11—ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

, ,

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. Donation made in honor of Nelda P’s birthday wish. If you have not already given at least $7.00 this week to someone or something you care about, I believe that money donated to St. Jude’s, https://www.stjude.org/ is a good gift for a good cause. See you next week!

GOOD MONEY GIFT WEEK 10—ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION

, ,

The Foundation’s mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. When my book was published last year, one dedication was to my brother Harold, who was at that time in the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Harold passed away earlier this year and this week’s gift is in memory of him. I miss you brother. June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. If you have not already given at least $7.00 this week to someone or something you care about, I believe that money donated to the Alzheimer’s Association, https://www.alz.org/ is a good gift for a good cause. See you next week!

GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 9—BROKE

, ,

BROKE…not having any money. In my free “FIVE-MINUTE CRASH COURSE,” I describe the “Going Broke” habit of money management. Your thoughts are where your habits are born, while your words and actions strengthen and reinforce those habits. If you ever have used that bad word br*k* to describe your finances, decide today not to use it again. Guard your mind and make sure that word is not lurking in your thoughts waiting to be spoken. Replace “I am br*k*, with “I have money.” Think it, speak, and act as if it is true until it is true. See you next week!

GOOD MONEY GIFT WEEK 9—SAFE SCHOOLS FOR ALEX

,

In an effort to protect all our children and teachers, the Safe Schools for Alex campaign will be used to support the efforts of a nationwide school safety commission spearheaded by Alex’s father, Max Schachter. Alex Schachter, 14, was killed during the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (Parkland, Florida) on February 14, 2018. One of the unanswerable questions in my life is “Why bad things happen to good people?” I don’t know why. I do know that for a season, Alex and his brother Ryan lived and played on the same street as my two sons. If you have not already given at least $7.00 this week to someone or something you care about, I believe that money donated to the Safe Schools for Alex campaign  http://safeschoolsforalex.org/ is a good gift for a good cause. See you next week!
