“Especially this year, there are numerous people feeling as I did when I was jobless with just $7 in my pocket; anxious and uncertain about my life and future. Those seven bucks represented a defining moment that changed my life,” Johnson said in a statement. “By investing in Acorns and helping every family who opens an Acorns Early account receive a $7 investment, I hope to inspire people to take responsibility of their financial future, regardless of background or current situation. The truth is, it doesn’t matter how small you start. Together with Acorns, we can strive to make saving for the next generation a reality for everyone.”
Knowing first-hand the impact $7 can make on someone’s future, Johnson and Acorns pledge to help families “begin with seven bucks” by investing $7 into every single family who opens an account with Acorns Early, a new and simple tool to help families of all backgrounds automatically invest in their child’s future, today until Sept. 7.
“Acorns is an incredible financial organization deeply rooted in its commitment to impact and empower the lives of consumers,” Garcia said in a statement. “The seasoned team of executives, fostered by shared principles of self-investment and service, is passionate about making financial knowledge and security accessible to all. It’s a thrill to partner with the team and add my expertise to advancing their long-term strategies and mission.”
Acorns CEO Noah Kerner praised the new partnership.
“Acorns was founded on the power of humble beginnings,” Kerner said. “We are excited to partner with Dwayne and Dany to encourage more Americans to start investing early ’cause the sooner you start the more that money can grow.”
According to Acorns, if parents began investing only $7 a week for a child from birth, considering an average 8 percent annual return, the youngster could have more than $807,986 by the time they’re 65.
