    I would be privileged if you allow me to write an article on “debt reduction” or “debt management plan”. If you wish you can also suggest me a topic.I assure you the article would be absolutely unique and relevant and will prove useful for your readers.

    If you are displeased with my email, I cordially regret in advance.

  3. Hi there,

    Nice to meet you! My name is Marcela De Vivo, and I came across your site http://www.teachingchildrenaboutmoney.com
    while doing some research on high education costs and saw you had a great post on how to budget for college.

    I’ve recently created a few infographics on education and college costs that I thought you might want to share with your readers. One is on budgeting for a kid’s college fund, another is on the best and worst degrees/careers in today’s economy, while the third covers the history of student loan debt.

    Let me know if these would be of interest to you and I can send them over for your review!

    Thanks for your time!

    I am Harry Martin, I went through your site (www.teachingchildrenaboutmoney.com) while surfing in Google and I am very much impressed with your site’s unique information.

    I work as a content writer in many educational communities and love the chance to guest post for the readers. I would like to share you an unique article on any education related topic. No duplication or copying of the article will be done. I assure you that the article will be posted only on your website.

    The best part is I won’t be charging you a penny, but in return I need just one link within the article.If you are interested to post my content on your site then please confirm.

    I am waiting for your positive reply.

    Best regards,

  5. For the past two years I have been working hard in New Jersey, where I live, to help children and families improve their lives by sharing with them certain principles I uncovered in a five-year research study on the daily habits of successful individuals. I created an ebook that I am giving away to organizations whose mission is to help children and families improve their lives. I would be happy to send anyone who asks (please email me) a free copy of my ebook.

    Dear Amanda,
    This is probably not the right place to send this question, but I need your help.
    On April 2, 2011 we joined your community and paid Euro 57 for an instruction package, which was for sale on your website.
    The money has been charged on our credit card on April 2 with description Paypall Cleverdough 35314369001 GB. We still did not receive your package.
    Can you please have a look at this. Netherlands is far away but it should have arrived by now!
    Thank you for your help.

    Kind regards, Jan Gerus
