Don’t Just Make a Difference. Be the Difference.
There is no denying we live in a fallen world. There are a lot of problems in the world, and sometimes there are so many that it makes it even harder to do something to help. After all, where do we begin?
I wanted to begin with student loan debt. When I was fresh out of college, struggling to find a good job, manage my home life, and pay back the bills, I spent several nights overly worried about my unpaid bills.
I was fortunate that I had a lot of support from my family and friends, but even with the help, I had many restless nights where I would struggle with the fear I would always be in debt. My depression and anxiety were compounded by this fear, and I spent many unhappy months struggling to find meaning and hope in daylight, while wondering if it was even real during the twilight.
Now that life has settled down a little, and I did get my student loans paid off, I want to give back, and this is where I want to begin.
This is my new book, Should I Go to College? What about Student Loan Debt? A Former Teacher’s Guide to Possibly Saving You Thousands of Dollars and Millions of Headaches. All proceeds from this book are going to help students with their loan repayments. In the US, most student loan debt repayments are between $50 and $500 dollars (though there are some that are definitely higher). It is my hope to be able to give out one month’s repayment to a new grad each month. Each ebook that is sold brings in close to $6, and each paperback will bring in $4.
I am working on getting the Incorporation papers together, since I would love to be able to take tax-deductible donations, offer fundraisers, and buy some private loan debts and forgive them. In the meantime, I think this is a great way to start helping. I hope you’ll by the book and check it out, leave a review, and maybe even get a copy for a friend.
I intend to keep records, so if you have any questions about monthly sales, please fill out the contact form and I will be happy to provide documentation. If you have any other questions or if you would like to help by making a donation, please feel free to reach out, too.
