For all the naysayers of the Occupy Wall Street movement, Occupy is now involved with an activity that has done more fiscal good in reducing debt for Americans than the Tea Party has ever done in its existence:
This perhaps is one of the most amazing charities ever. This is an off-shoot group of the Occupy movement which was an organization that I was proud to be a part of (and did some work for) during its peak.
Basically, what Rolling Jubilee does is they buy bundled debt from creditors looking to sell it for pennies to the dollar. Credit agencies do this all the time with each other to unload debt and make profits off of each other. Except Rolling Jubilee just buy its and forgives the people of their debt.
For the millions of Americans who have fallen into credit, medical, and student loan debt, Rolling Jubilee is saving Americans by the bundles. Imagine a family who gets a letter in the mail saying their creditors will no longer be hunting them and compounding their debt in interest. Or a college student who still hasn't been able to find a job but is saddled in tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt. Or the uninsured American, a victim of the system, is now able to rest in peace knowing their surgery 5 years ago has now been made off.
This is a 100% transparent charity organization that buys off and abolishes debt. The only associated costs are the paperwork, accounting, and legal fees it takes to organize its operations. All volunteers managing the fund receive no compensation for their time.
If you donate $100, you will abolish $2,000 of someone's debt!
I hope this site inspires you to donate to such an amazing charity.
