Helping People Help People – The Yakezie Challenge

Proud Member of the Yakezie ChallengeI’ve watched the Yakezie group of finance bloggers grow with admiration and wonder.

In fact, despite not joining them, I think I was one of the first followers!

So why join now?

What the Yakezie group is doing now is inspiring, and I want to join a group of motivated people who are trying to make a small piece of the world a better place.

Currently, they’re donating money for a student scholarship. And after getting a feel for the Yakezie culture, I think this is going to be just the beginning.

To everyone who helps others: live long and prosper!

    Thanks Kevin,

    I'm looking forward to what we can accomplish as a group, in the years ahead. Ideas, like raising money for scholarships are really exciting. With luck, perhaps one day we can raise money for fresh water wells also—with a Yakezie member delivering the money directly and then watching as the well gets built, with video proof in hand. That would also be powerful.
