Nickel From Nicole and GWA Partner for Driver Safety Program

GWA Donation Check Presentation to Nickel from Nicole.

March 30, 2018

DALLAS, TEXAS – Global Wealth Advisors has partnered with Nickel from Nicole, a Plano non-profit, to assemble “Nickel Cards” which will be sent to school districts around Texas to help remind student drivers to be safe. The volunteer event benefiting the driver safety program has been scheduled for Saturday, April 7th from 9:00 a.m. until noon at the GWA office.

GWA President Kris Maksimovich  will kick-off the meeting by presenting a $1,000 donation to Nickel from Nicole on behalf of GWA and the Commonwealth Cares foundation, administered through Commonwealth Financial Network®, GWA’s broker-dealer. According to Maksimovich, “GWA and Commonwealth Cares are inspired by Nickel from Nicole’s effort to educate young drivers. As a father of a 16-year-old driver myself, I can appreciate the need to remind them that they are inexperienced and must take extra care on the road.”

During this event, volunteers will be divided into breakout groups that will perform different tasks required in assembling the “Nickel Cards”. When completed, these cards will be sent to various school districts, and academic groups who have requested them to start, or complement their driver safety program.

Nickel from Nicole, a 501(c)(3) organization, was formed out of tragedy as passenger, 16-year-old Nicole became a victim of reckless driving. No texting. No drugs. No alcohol.  In the wake of her death, classmate Lance nicknamed Nicole “Nickel”, and taped a nickel to the dashboard of his car to always remind himself to drive safely.  Nicole’s father Jeff LeGrow, and President of Nickel from Nicole, is paying Lance’s message forward. According to LeGrow, “The #1 cause of teen deaths in the USA is car accidents. Our objective is simple; to get other teens to place a nickel on their dashboard as a constant reminder for them to drive safely.”

Commonwealth Cares is a 501(c)(3) charity operated and administered through Commonwealth Financial Network®. Commonwealth Cares provides contributions of time, talent, and financial support to a wide range of philanthropic efforts aimed at relieving human suffering, promoting social and economic growth, and sustaining and protecting our planet’s resources.
