Some folks with graduate degrees can have obligations as high as $1,000 a month. Under the Income Based Repayment Plan (IBR) you can approach government loan officers who will review your financial circumstances and draw up a more reasonable repayment plan. Some have had their $1,000 payments reduced to as little as $300.
Take your child to a non charity non profit donations event! Show your child that compassion extends out from the family structure by taking them to participate with you in an event that benefits strangers. I highly recommend a toy drive! Go out with your child and help collect toys for the needy! And then have both of you be present to help distribute the toys if at all possible! You and your child will make all sorts of new friends in the process in like age brackets, and your child will learn the rewards of helping others. I also recommend asking local XMAS tree lots if they distribute trees they haven’t sold to the needy on their last day of business, and ask them if you and your child could help in their operation.
The most effective sales pitch you can make is not the one that is made by you at all. It is the one that comes from what reputable local charities your customers say about you.
Many demonstrations of German dancing such as clogging (a folk dance done while wearing wooden shoes) where the dancer’s feet make music of their own, tapping heel and toe in time to the music will be given. Perhaps the public will be invited to join. If not, that’s OK. It’s a beautiful dance to watch.
Men, when you shave, fill the sink. I found myself guilty of this as well. Whenever I shaved I kept the water running and after every stroke I washed off the blade for a cleaner stroke. Instead, fill the sink with hot water and just dip in the razor, the effect is exactly the same.
Your local church. Call your local churches, ask if they can help your family or someone you know. You don’t have to belong to their church to get help. They may have the ability to help you or they may be able to point you in a direction that can. This is a great resource as churches often have many contacts in the community.
Sexton is a sensation, not only doing the song justice, but giving it multiple layers with his guitar. It’s easy to forget that this is only one man performing and creating all these sounds.
