Our passion during this Easter season is to focus on forgiveness. One massive way that forgiveness is seen in the world is through money. However much we are able to raise from this matching fundraiser is going to pay off debt for others. See the impact that Ramsey had a few months ago from this diagram.
One massive problem in America is debt that cripples individuals and families.
“We have seen dozens of churches and organizations pay off hundreds of millions in debt for pennies on the dollar. We have heard from many people that got a phone call or letter of forgiveness and accept the hope and love that it brings. We have seen the media share this idea to millions of people who see faith in action instead of reporting about what they are against.”

RIP Medical Debt is a powerhouse right now! One option you have would be to partner with them in debt forgiveness. https://ripmedicaldebt.org/contact/#
One thing that RIP Medical does not do is allow you to communicate with those that you impact in your community or nationally. As I worked on this for a year with them, that was one thing I felt was missing. I know they are paying more off. Yet to me, it is about the relationship. It is about connecting with a person and hearing their story
Ramsey Solutions did something that not one organization has ever done. They brokered directly with a debt buyer who is a believer and then put together a campaign to communicate and hear from those impacted.
Here are the statistics that Ramsey Solutions found when they spent $150,000 to eliminate debt of $10,000,000 for over 8,000 families and then had their staff called them, write letters, and then pointed them to a website for resources.
Benefits of doing this:
I have a relationship with Craig M. Geisler of www.cherrywoodenterprises.com who is a believer in Jesus and helps broker debt. He can buy debt at any amount that you can put toward it over $5,000 and then get you all the information for those thousands of people you have helped
We will work with you to put together a simple page on your main webpage that would be similar to this: https://www.daveramsey.com/forgiven
