Spending your summer vacation doing chores may not sound ideal to some, but it’s what the Murset Family will be doing.

They’ll be doing chores - and lots of them – every day in different locations, in different cities across the U.S. for different families.

25 stops in 20 days to be exact.

Gregg Murset is the founder and CEO of My Job Chart, an online chore program launched three years ago to help parents teach kids a solid work ethic and money management.

“We’ve taken what used to be hanging on the refrigerator and you put check marks or a sticker on it and we’ve put it online,” he says. “We felt like we were starting to nag and we didn’t want to be those kinds of parents that are constantly nagging, so we thought this would put it more on their heads than ours.”

This summer Greg and his wife Kami took their idea on the road with the Work Across America Tour. Greg calls it a natural extension of their app and adding an element of charity to the equation.

The Arizona family of eight is doing work for families living with autism, cancer and military vets during their 6500 mile trek.

They’re not doing it for nothing. The Murset kids work for an allowance, which is managed on the job app – and helps pay for things like cell phones and music lessons.
