October 27, 2008

In the last two months the US has lost $2 trillion dollars in our current volatile economy. Where can we turn for a solution? Toward the 3 billion children in the world under 24 years old.

Five-year-old Abigail says, “No matter how much money you make, you need to give back. Don’t be greedy.” After earning her first $200 selling hand-decorated gift bags on Craigslist and Ebay Abigail donated some of her money to The Boys and Girls Club of Boston.

Along with 100 other kids and their families Abigail is enrolled in The Billionaire Babies program which gives free teleclasses that teach children (with a bit of parental help) everything from writing a business plan to marketing their passion.   Read full Press Release...
