Today is a day to celebrate among the masses. It's a day for young and old, rich and poor, for credit unions in Alberta and Michigan alike; happy International Credit Union Day! Since 1948, this day has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October. This day was created to celebrate all of the achievements made by credit unions and those who work for, who created, and who appreciate credit unions. If you're anything like me and you're a loyal member of a credit union, you LOVE where you bank (I SWEAR by Michigan First Credit Union, pretty much.)
If you haven't heard, I've been in Nashville the past few days with other Young & Free Spokesters from Alberta, St. Louis, Alabama, Maine, Florida and Indiana. Today, we'll be collaborating and creating a video together about Young & Free and about credit unions.
When last year's spokesters came to Nashville, they also made a video about credit unions, explaining what they would do if they had an extra $50,000. Why would they be explaining that? Because banking with a credit union compared to a bank has shown to save members $50,000 over their life times. Credit unions seem pretty awesome now don't they?
So today I would like to leave you with this video, made by last year's spokesters, as well as this question: what would you do if you had an extra $50,000?
Until next time,
