Saves

‘Ando Saves:’ Sudbury’s Jesse Rich raises money by making stops as a hockey goalie to help children of late Lincoln-Sudbury athletic trainer – Sports – MetroWest Daily News, Framingham, MA

Now, it’s Jesse’s turn to help by doing the one thing he likes most: making saves.

WESTBOROUGH — Jesse Rich wants to make a lot of saves this year.

That’s because the 12-year-old ice hockey goalie from Sudbury is stopping pucks for a good cause.

From Sept. 15 to Dec. 15, Rich, who plays netminder for two club hockey teams, is asking people to donate money for each save he makes. Those funds will go to the family of former Lincoln-Sudbury athletic trainer, Yoshitaka Ando, who died from esophageal cancer last year, in order to raise enough money to send all four of Ando’s children to college.

“I want to give back to Ando and his family in the same way he gave to my community,” wrote Rich in an online pledge last month.

This DIY Mom Saves Thousands of Dollars a Year on Kids Clothing

Real Moms, Real Money – Sarah Tyau

Motherhood didn’t lessen Sarah Tyau’s love for fashion, but after the birth of her first child, Tyau’s financial priorities shifted. Tyau began to refashion clothes for less than $10 and her creativity continues to help her family save thousands.

Before marriage and motherhood, money management looked a lot different for blogger Sarah Tyau than it does these days. The Utah-based mom of three wasn’t in debt, but didn’t prioritize saving. “All my paycheck would literally just go to buying clothes,” she says. “I definitely just spent all my money on whatever I wished.”

It was soon after she got married and had her first child that she began rethinking her spending habits. “I knew now I couldn’t spend all my money on clothes, ’cause it’s not just my money and I have to be more responsible,” she shares. “I remember I was online
