A regular reader of Budgets Are Sexy, I’ve had the privilege of getting to know the man behind the site – J Money. As everyone knows he’s quite the character, but he’s also a very genuine person.
He truly cares about personal finance. He’s always working on side projected and looking for ways to help others learn about & manage their money. He pinged me about a recent one he’s uber-excited about so I figured I’d share it with my own readers:
Teaming up with the social movement ItStartsWith.Us, he and Nate St. Pierre are on a warpath to start giving back NOW. No bailout proposals, political red tape, or misappropriated funds – just plain and simple helping others.
A micro-giving campaign, the idea is based on the participating collective changing the lives of one family every month with donations directly from the site.
“The idea is that if everyone gave just $1 or $2 to a pot, we could turn around and directly make an impact on the lives of those close to our hearts. It’s not a replacement for volunteering or any other charitable things we’re doing, but more of an extra way to help someone out financially. Check it out and let us know what you think! :) “
