THE ANGEL, January 21, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The Singleton Foundation for Financial Literacy & Entrepreneurship today announced a partnership with the National Football League Alumni Association (NFLA) to launch critical financial and entrepreneurial conversations with Millennial and Gen Z communities and alumni members . Million Stories Media, a Singleton Foundation program, offers original and curated content designed to engage and entertain audiences while inspiring them to build a better financial future.
Million Stories Media (www.millionstories.com) is a free digital channel that features programs and resources that cover a range of financial topics that affect the lives of many young people and provides helpful tools for their daily lives. From creating a budget to building an emergency fund to taking vital lessons on the power of failure, familiar faces and everyday Americans share their stories as they move through financial situations.
After the success of ADULTING: WITH RICHARD SHERMAN, an original show on Million Stories that features NFL superstars Richard Sherman As a platform to share his passion for financial literacy with a wide audience, the foundation recognized that the NFL Alumni Association was the perfect place to share common goals.
The NFL Alumni Association consists of former NFL players, coaches, executives, spouses, cheerleaders, and associate members. Part of the NFL Alumni’s dual mission is “Caring for Kids”. Player alumni give back in their local communities by raising funds for youth-related charities through their 35 regional chapters. It’s a tradition that has been around for more than 50 years. The other half of the NFLA’s mission, “Care for Our Own”, is to serve, support, and inform its members and families. Alumni members are offered a diverse package of wellness, business, career, and legal services to keep members and their families healthy, productive, and connected.
Together, the organizations will share original and curated content from Million Stories to reinforce the importance of breaking the taboo on talking about money and encouraging young people to think like entrepreneurs, leading to a better financial future. In turn, some of the NFL alumni stories will be expanded as part of the millions of stories told.
