Elizabeth, NJ – Phroogal, a financial education startup announces The Road to Financial Wellness, a local grassroots and social media experiment with a mission to turn local money discussions into a national conversation on financial well-being. The Phroogal team will travel 10,000 miles zigzagging across the country and participate in 30 events in 30 locations in 30 days beginning on June 1, 2015. The road trip starts in Portland, Maine and end in Los Angeles, CA on June 30, 2015. The team will engage, record and share the financial stories of local residents, financial educators and organizations with a goal to connect financial knowledge as the key to achieving dreams.
On The Road to Financial Wellness mission, Phroogal Founder Jason Vitug said, “In order for people to learn about money, the conversation must first start and we plan to start the conversation on an epic scale to bring about local and national awareness. Financial education isn’t a hot summer topic but by integrating an epic cross country road trip that combines financial stories with life experiences could lead to a greater understanding of the importance of financial knowledge. So expect to find us going up on a hot air balloon talking about financial hopes and dreams or spelunking down a cave discussing financial pitfalls.”
To complete the mission, Phroogal plans to do the following:
Each location has been determined and called pit stops on The Road to Financial Wellness. There are 30 pit stops that include large metropolitan areas and rural hamlets.
Phroogal has partnered with local groups such as credit unions, nonprofits, financial technology companies and municipalities around the country. The road trip is sponsored nationally by Payoff, a financial services company offering credit card debt relief through loan consolidation.
Jason Vitug will share his personal journey of financial mistakes, professional success and his decision to change course that led to a 20 country backpacking trip in 12 months in 2012.
The Phroogal team will conduct street-level interviews, have coffeehouse discussion and check off bucket list items showcasing the unique cultures, lifestyles and attractions of each location pit stop.
