Putting your tax dollars to good use through charitable giving – advice from Steve Sexton
Steve Sexton is President of Sexton Advisory Group and h0st of “Winning in Life” on KBCQ 1170 AM. On “Winning in Life,” Steve provides financial, business, and travel advice for his listeners as well as ways “to win” in all aspects of life. In addition, one of Steve’s passions that he shares on his show is giving back to the community and making others aware of various charities that provide opportunities to give.
In case you forgot, October is charity month on “Winning in Life,” and this week, Steve sat down with guest speaker, Shawn Nelson, founder of Jacob’s House.
Jacob’s House is a nonprofit organization located in Temecula, California. Similar to the Ronald McDonald House charity program, Jacob’s House provides a place of refuge for those families experiencing a time of crisis. However, the founders, Shawn and Stephanie Nelson wanted to create a place not limited to serving children and children’s hospitals but one for people of all ages from children to senior citizens. Shawn says they wanted to serve “anyone who has a loved one in a crisis situation.”
Shawn shared with listeners that they are currently planning to purchase a home that can provide accommodations for three to four families by the year 2013, and their future goal is to raise $9 million for the construction of a 35,000 sq. ft. 23 guest bedroom facility. Steve pointed out that all the donations go straight to Jacob’s House and helping families in crisis.

Before closing, Steve promised that for every caller with financial questions who mentions Jacob’s House, Winning in Life will donate $100 to the charity. He only asked listeners to consider giving any proceeds that “Winning in Life” helps you get back to Jacob’s House and that the radio show will do the same.
