New Year, New Money You Challenge #5: Give to Others

You would think that after you faithfully arrive at #5 of the New Year New Money You challenges (catch up links to other challenges listed below) that it would be a fanfare all about you. And we are proud of you, for sure, but the 5th challenge is actually a reminder that–it’s not all about you. If you are fortunate enough to have money, we encourage you to find ways to “share the wealth”. Give to others.

Congrats. You made it all the way to the New Year, New “Money You” Challenge #5!


Challenge #5 Consider: Who can you help this year?

How can you share the monetary resources you have? A little or a lot. Who needs your help?

After a rough year financially, when you can only donate a little, is it better to wait until next year when, maybe, you can give a lot?

Not really.

We would challenge you to find some portion of your finances to give to a worthy cause, this year. Your final New Year, New Money You Challenge is to choose a charity and donate to help their good work. Does this mean you have to write some crazy, big check? No. Although, we are sure they would accept it. Just give generously and from your heart.


Imagine someone in need, opening your financial gift as if they discovered it wrapped with a big bow and note just for them. Explain to your children how this gift, and the sacrifice you make in giving it, will help others in need.

You are diligent in taking steps to improve your money and your relationships. And now that effort will extend beyond the walls of your home.

Thank you! And well done!

Congratulations on the challenges you conquered to make this year, the best year ever.
