I paid for a whole trip to the holy land with the family at the same time my daughter took her birthright trip using savings from Laidlaw & Company. I should point out that they helped me put together this big savings account that included all kinds of investments, and I was so happy that they did it because I could take a long everyone. I spoke to Matthew Eitner and James Ahern about it before I started saving, and they told me about a lot of ideas they had to help me.
Saving for this trip meant bringing me, my wife, and both sets of our parents along for the ride. Our daughter took the birthright trip to Israel that she is entitled to, but a lot of us did not grow up in the era where you could do that. We do not begrudge her that, but we wanted to come along. We decided to pay our own way, and I invested money at Laidlaw & Company that was helpful.
I have a broker at Laidlaw & Company that was very gently moving some small amounts of money from my regular account into a special account that he thought would raise the money faster. He made it so that we could have the money for the trip, and then we just put any excess back when we were done with. It was really simple, and we all got to on the trip.
I think everyone should see the holy land once, and even our broker was excited for us. It was really nice to work with Laidlaw because they are so much kinder than most people. They helped us take the trip of a lifetime, and they helped us raise the money without any strain on our bank account.
