Welcome to Community at BECU, a place for anyone who wants to talk about money, saving, investments and everything in between. Have a question or just want to get the community’s opinion on something? This is the place. It’s a great resource for peer-to-peer advice, access to the latest BECU news and behind the scene’s insights from BECU’s experts.
BECU monthly newsletter may bring up the statistic that 50% (?) of the American population CAN NOT come up with $1000 cash for emergencies. So you may ask members to open a new savings account nicknamed my "1K rainy day" or something catchy and challenge members to add $50-$100 every paycheck or every month and find out a way to live without this money for 10 -20 paychecks or months. If succesful, (it may continue) just keep on saving, if NOT, just keep on saving :-) At the same time you may invite members that finish the challenge to talk about their struggles or story behind their success.

In the other hand if there are not enough submissions, then it can be open to "local" independent artists.
