Icing up for ALS

Icing up for ALS

  • Savings
Remember back to 2014 when pretty much everyone was having buckets of ice cold water thrown over their heads to raise money for the ALS Association?

The Ice Bucket Challenge promoted awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encouraged donations for research. More than 17 million people posted videos of themselves getting a bucket of ice and water dumped over their head while nominating three people to do the same thing. It went viral in the summer of 2014, using social media as a platform to reach a worldwide audience and encourage donations to the ALS Assocation.

Doesn't time fly? That is particularly true when it comes to savings and a small amount put aside each month can build up over a short period of time. With time going by so quickly, doesn’t it make sense to start saving today for tomorrow?

If you start on your savings journey today, you could build up a nice amount of money over a short period of time. Customers who started saving €75 per month five years ago could have built up their funds to €5,074* now. Customer who saved €150 could have €10,147* today, and for those who saved €300 a month they could have built up their funds to over €20,294*.
