Laurie witnessed her daughter suffer and ultimately succumb to cancer. She watched on as the traditional hopes and worries of a young teenage girl gave way to those of chemotherapy, medical procedures, and remission. She experienced the devastating manner in which cancer can alter the course of a child’s life, robbing them of their carefree exuberance. After fulfilling her daughter’s wish of starting Kay’s Kamp, Laurie witnessed the impact and importance camp had on the children. In this way, Laurie is giving the children of Kay’s Kamp what Kaylyn wanted herself: a place to leave her worries behind, a place to not worry about her scars, a place to be a kid again.
What is a Credit Union?
Since Credit Unions are not-for-profit organizations, income earned above the cost of operations may be returned to the members in the form of dividends, low interest rates on money borrowed, or invested in additional products or services. Credit unions are made up of people with a common bond—something that draws them together, such as a place of employment, an organization, a church, etc. When someone joins a credit union, they open a share account (savings). It is called a share account because the individual becomes part owner of the credit union.
The credit union idea is a simple one: people should be able to pool their money and make loans to each other. It’s an idea that evolved from cooperative activities in 19th century Europe. Since that time, the idea’s guiding principles have remained the same: only people who are credit union members should borrow there, loans are made for prudent and productive purposes, a person’s desire to repay (character) is considered more important than the ability to repay. Members are, after all, borrowing their own money and that of their friends. These principles still govern most of the world’s credit unions.
Member service is the foundation of the credit union movement. Whether a credit union is providing a loan to help a member cover unexpected medical bills, giving financial counseling to a member whose company closed its doors, or simply offering a better deal on a used car loan, the credit union is helping its members and the community as a whole.
