The Day of Jubilee

I want to bring attention to a blog I just ran across from NPR posted September 17, 2014. There is a group out there called ” Rolling Jubilee” who is buying up second party debt (the debt banks sell when you default on your loans), but instead of collecting from you, they are paying it off with money they’ve raised from online donations. Why would they do that? You can check them out at http://rollingjubilee.org/. A lot of the debt they are paying off are delinquent medical bills and student loans. If you feel pity for the companies that have been defaulted on, rent “Maxed Out” and see if you feel the same. This group deserves attention for the kind work it is doing and I just wanted to give them a shout-out.
