I run a small start up (see www.tankinlian.com for a range of my consulting, software development and other activities) and have to spend most of my working time there.
I can and have to do the educational work (i.e my blog and website) mostly in the evenings, weekends and public holidays. I also have to spend a lot of time looking for volunteers for FISCA and to get their commitment to spend time on its educational activities. That is also a lot of work and sacrifice. But the work has to be done, in the interest of educating the public about financial issues and giving them the knowledge to make better financial decisions.
I like to ask those who have benefited from my blog and FAQs in my website to give tangible support for FISCA in the following ways:
- Join FISCA as a member (only $36 a year)
- Attend the educational talks of FISCA ($30 for public, reduced rate for members)
- Donate to FISCA (say 10% of the distribution cost that you saved by avoiding a bad policy)
FISCA needs funds to pay an allowance to its volunteers (some of whom are not gainfully employed). I am not able to handle FISCA on my own. More people are joining FISCA (and I thank them for their support), but I need much more. So please spread the word around.
Remember - if you have gained from my educational activities, you could save $100,000 over the next 30 years,. That is a lot of money - not to be taken for granted. Make a generous donation to FISCA.
