Will You Move Your Money?

The “Move Your Money” project was created and launched by Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post. The project encourages people to move their money out of the big banks and into locally-owned community banks and credit unions.

Over the past four weeks, it is estimated that 650,000 consumers have opened an account at a credit union. Overall, credit unions in the U.S. have more that 91 million members, which roughly equates to one in three Americans. Have you recently become a member of a credit union? Or do you plan to make the switch soon? Share your thoughts in a comment below.
