PhroogalPhroogal’s 30 Cities in 30 Days Campaign To Break The Taboo About Money Will Make Stops In 7 More Cities

(Elizabeth, NJ)- Phroogal, a financial education service that empowers millennials to make better informed financial decisions, is on the final leg of their Road to Financial Wellness tour. The Road to Financial Wellness Tour zigzagged across the country this month, making stops at 30 cities in 30 days to get millennials talking about their financial wellness. The tour kicked off June 1 in Portland, ME and will wrap up in Los Angeles, CA on June 30. By the end of the month, the Phroogal team will have travelled 10,000 miles on their epic cross country road trip.

The team has made a pit stop in a different American city every day since June 1, spending the day speaking with local residents and millennials about their financial stories and participating in localized events such as financial education workshops, fairs, coffeehouse discussions and impromptu street level discussions. Phroogal has teamed up with credit unions, nonprofits, financial institutions and government organizations to help make navigating financial health accessible to young adults.

“Throughout this trip, we have witnessed remarkable conversations and honest dialogue about financial wellbeing,” says Jason Vitug, CEO and founder of Phroogal. “We have had great success in teaming up with various organizations in helping to tie financial education to achieving lifestyle goals and making smart financial decisions.”

Sponsored nationally by Payoff.com, The Road to Financial Wellness events are aimed to start local conversations about money and turn them into a national conversation about financial well-being. The events vary from one location to another but each include discussion about money mindsets. As the tour winds up, attendees will talk about their relationship with money and learn about the resources and tools that empower their communities to make better financial decisions. The events will include an hour or longer session where the Phroogal team can engage, discuss and present information to the attendees.

Phroogal will be making stops in the following cities for the remainder of the Road to Financial Wellness:

·         June 24: Missoula, MT

·         June 25: Seattle, WA

·         June 26: Portland, OR
