Laurick Ingram's Story

"I grew up as the youngest of eleven children in the James E. Scott Housing Projects of Liberty City," said Ingram. "My father was placed in a state hospital shortly after I was born, and my mother raised me and my siblings with the help of welfare and food stamps."

Ingram's inspiration comes from his mother who generously gave of her time and her money even as she worked and cared for her eleven children. He also learned from people in his community who gave books, food, clothes and other necessities to his family to keep them educated, safe and healthy.

The Mission

The Give and Save 365 Concept is "Creating prosperity through philanthropy." It is rooted in the belief that you can grow your giving through faith and grow your faith through saving. The philosophy came from his pastor, Bishop Victor Curry, who taught him the necessity of giving, and his grandmother, Victoria McCullough, who taught him the power of saving.

The Plan

Ingram lays out an easy plan to create a prosperity cycle in people's lives. The four steps are as follows:

* Give
* Save
* Learn
* Repeat

The challenge is to start immediately, even if only giving and saving a dollar per day. Just as a mustard seed properly planted and cared for can grow into a beautiful tree; a dollar per day properly given and saved can grow into a worthwhile financial future.
