The financial crisis has encouraged many people to join the Move Your Money campaign and bank at local community banks and credit unions instead of major banks and financial institutions. Actor Alan Cumming revealed to New York Magazine's Daily Intel that he, too, has joined the movement.

In addition to asking about his favorite features of New York City, the magazine asked how he had been affected by the Wall Street crisis. He said he had taken his money out of a major financial firm and encouraged others to take his lead:

I moved what was left of my money away from Goldman Sachs. Go to moveyourmoney.info and do the same.

Cumming is not the first celebrity to endorse the Move Your Money campaign. Bill Maher and filmmaker Michael Moore have both backed the idea, as has Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), who chose to end her "abusive relationship" and open an account at a local community bank.
