The Chime Weekly Roundup: Heartfelt Giving

By David Hathaway
December 23, 2016

The much anticipated holiday weekend is almost here, and with it will come family, gifts, and joy. Before the big day, and the holidays come to a close, celebrate the spirit of the season with a few special gifts that come from the heart, and by donating to a meaningful charity. Looking onward to the new year, explore financial resolutions that will bring you success, as well as ways to avoid the financial hangover from the holidays.

Read on and enjoy these four financial posts just in time for all the festivities.

1. What to say to your friend who still doesn’t know what to get their family or friends…

Think outside the box. Literally, outside the gift box. Worried you can’t give a gift simply because you didn’t shop early enough? Give some of your time and help a loved one get a space organized, do a quick DIY project, or frame a friend’s favorite photo. There are many more ways to give than simply store-bought wonders.

2. What to say to the friend who wants to make the holiday season more meaningful…

Give to those who need it most. Find a charity you identify with and make giving simple by setting up a yearly auto-payment or noting on your calendar the day you plan to donate. Supercharge your karma, there’s no better feeling than giving to a cause expecting nothing in return.

3. What to say to your friend who is stressed about their holiday budget…

Make a money resolution. It may be building an emergency fund, creating a budget, picking up a side gig, or all three! It’s been shown having a plan, and goals, are key to financial success, and now’s the perfect time to get started.

4. What to say to your friend who always finds themselves in post-holiday debt…

New year, new you. Avoid the financial stress of having less money after the holidays by making sure you’ve planned ahead for the deficit. With any luck, the only hangover you’ll have will be from the fabulous festive wine.
