Has There Ever Been A More Important Time to Teach Children About Money?
Inspire and educate young people about money with Grow Up Rich. Helping to empower a new generation who are financially literate and money conscious. With your support, we are creating a book which will be given to every secondary school in the country.
"Grow Up Rich" - Comprehensive Financial Education For Young People
Today we are experiencing record levels of personal debt, home repossessions, massive student loans and people in desperate need of financial help and advice. Payday lenders are offering short term solutions at enormous rates of interest, backed by big budget TV campaigns and the younger generation have precious few positive role models to aspire to.
Will you be part of the solution?
What makes Grow Up Rich unique is the combination of prevention and possibility:
- Preventing the misery of a life blighted by debt, balanced with the possibility of creating and growing wealth.
- Preventing the cycle of poverty and reliance on benefits, contrasted with the possibility of learning from the success of others
- Preventing out of control student debts with the possibility of empowered money management.
Containing practical how-to advice on subjects such as credit and debt, payday lenders, buying a car and living independently; combined with entrepreneurial advice and guidance on how to create and grow wealth. Included are interviews and case studies of inspirational young people who have achieved success in all walks of life.
By donating a copy of the book to every secondary school in the country, the project will act like dropping a pebble in a pond, creating ripples of inspiration which will reach far and wide. Some books will be used as part of curriculum, others shared in school libraries or stimulating discussions in the staffroom and classroom.
We are offering a fantastic range of rewards for supporters ranging from signed books and exclusive merchandise up to sponsors packages for businesses who would benefit from reaching a national audience (sorry payday lenders need not apply)!
