A4A Will Donate $20 To Bubbles The Clown's Financial Literacy Program If You Join Now; A Lesson In How Advisors Can Partner With Nonprofits

If you join Advisors4Advisors (A4A) now, we will donate $20 of our $60 membership fee to Bubbles The Clown’s financial literacy program, and you can post a logo on your website saying you support Bubbles' charitable organization.

 
Bubbles the Clown is David Felzenberg, a professional clown for over 25 years. I stumbled into reviews of Felzenberg’s 501(c)3 charitable organization while researching an article about how financial advisors can partner with good causes.

This Website Is For Financial Professionals Only


 
Felzenberg received 5-star rating from 27 reviewers, placing him near the top of the national list of charities at GreatNonProfits.org, a website where people rate charitable organizations.
 
Here’s the review that hooked me: “I work with grad students who are looking for jobs,” says reviewer Kate D. “Too often they are loaded with debt and cannot avoid taking jobs they don't want because they have to start paying off their loans. If these very smart people had gotten the message from Bubbles the Clown when they were young about saving money, they might have avoided the problems they are facing now.”
 
I called Felzenberg to see if Advisors4Advisors could help him spread his message, and we came up with this idea.
 
If you join A4A before the end of 2011, A4A will donate $20 of your $60 2011 membership fee to Felzenberg’s financial literacy program. We’ll also license you to post an icon on your website saying you sponsor Bubble’s charity and linking to his site.
 
If you are interested, you can also bring Bubbles to your town to conduct his financial literacy class for children. For $1500 (plus travel expenses), Felzenberg will come to your community.
 
Felzenberg’s 75-minute show teaches three- to nine-year olds fundamental lessons about money. Bubbles.  It’s a great event for families. The kids get to see Bubbles financial literacy show, while you get to meet their parents and grandparents.

(Incidentally, Bubbles has voluntarily submitted to a background check by the FBI and Maryland State Police.)
 
Advisors4Advisors is a website I started in August 2009 to share what I know about private wealth management. I also run Advisor Products, which makes websites, client portals, content, and marketing solutions for financial advisors. You can rely on A4A always to report what we believe is in your best interest. Our staff writers and 25 industry-expert bloggers offer advisors news and practice management ideas you won’t find elsewhere.
 
 
A4A's support of Buibbles The Clown shows how advisors can partner with good causes.  Let us know what you think.

Bubbles for RIA oversight! Much more prepared than Ketchum the Clown.
