The Story

I am a staunch advocate for youth and financial education. I have taught and spoken at schools all over Chicago on the importance of money management, encouraging kids to learn early about money and finances. After recently purchasing stocks for my 8-year-old niece, I was inspired to embark on the ambitious endeavor of turning ONE MILLION youth into public company shareholders. I want to give children from underprivileged and under-served communities the chance to participate in the world of investing. I want to help them to THINK like an owner by giving them an opportunity to BE an owner.

This initiative is called ONE STOCK ONE FUTURE.

My first goal is to raise $5,000 for the first class by July 27, 2016.  After that, I expect to partner with public companies to have shares donated as I target other non-profits, schools, civic organizations, and government agencies that cater to youth between the ages of 8 and 18.

Let's turn ONE MILLION youth into OWNERS. Let's show them that they BELONG. Let's show them that they have a FUTURE. To learn more, please contact me at [email protected], and follow @1Stock1Future on Facebook and Twitter.

On Thursday, we held the inaugural class of One Stock One Future where we turned 50 high school freshmen into public company shareholders.  Be sure to visit the FB to view pictures, and don't forget to LIKE the page and SHARE!  Thank you all for your contributions.  This would not have been possible without your support.  I will continue the campaign as we will continue to turn youth into shareholders.  We are targeting youth ages 8-18.  We are going beyond children in school as we target juvenile offenders, homeless youth, children with autism, and other less fortunate youth!  #OneMillionYouth #Shareholders #FinancialEducation #Ownership #Hope #Inspiration
