Our “call to apply” was a success! We received more than 15 applications from credit union members, ready to destroy their debt. The Kansas Credit Union Association is in the process of finalizing the nitty gritty details with each participant.
We are keeping the identities of our Money Possible participants under wraps until the week of January 27, so you’ll have to hold onto your hat for just a few more weeks.
Money Possible segments will begin airing on KAKE-TV (ABC, Channel 10) Tuesday, March 4 so be sure and set that DVR up to record. Are you one of those people who don’t have “regular” TV? No worries…these segments will be available online at momseveryday.com. If you don’t have that “Interweb” thing that Al Gore invented, well, we can’t help you with that one.
Segments will include live interviews once a month, as well as weekly participant updates so you can cheer our participants on, or give a sympathetic nod when things aren’t going their way. Because you know you’ve been there too.
For those with the attention span of a Twitter user, 15 second Destroy Debt tips will air throughout the duration of the campaign. And speaking of Twitter, you can
stalk, I mean follow along along at #moneypossible. The best part is you don’t even have to leave your couch to learn tips and tricks that even the most financially challenged person can use. Score!
In the meantime, our participants will be meeting with Consumer Credit Counseling Service to assess the best way to destroy their household debt.
Wait, back up the truck, Chuck. Just finding out about this Money Possible thingy? Here’s the short story: It’s a consumer financial literacy campaign supported by the Kansas Credit Union Association and in partnership with Kansas credit unions and the Kansas Consumer Credit Counseling Service. Read more about the Money Possible: Destroy Debt campaign.
If you want to participate but don’t want to air your dirty laundry, free Money Possible packets will be available during the campaign at Wichita area credit unions to anyone who asks.
