Please go RIP Medical Debt site: to see the latest amount raised for this new campaign to abolish $17.76 million in medical debt!

A Declaration of Independence From Unpaid Medical Debt

This will be one of the most unusual causes that you will be asked to participate in this year, if not ever.

So, what are we talking about here? And, why are we seeking your donations. We’re sparking a revolution for these times and responding to a modern threat to what our founding fathers intended to guarantee us 240 years ago – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

That threat is a mountain of unpaid, and unpayable personal medical debt.

Don’t believe for one moment that this is not a serious cause. One in three Americans families is faced with skyrocketing medical bills.  60% of all personal bankruptcies in the U.S. are medical-debt related. Medical accounts comprise over 50% of all collection agency accounts.

Your financial help will both unburden a significant number of people from this seemingly intractable problem as well as set the stage for a national program in which a Declaration of Independence from Unpaid Medical Debt will eventually be realized from coast-to-coast.

This July 4th, 2016 and going forward, we are proclaiming a new Declaration of Independence for afflicted Americans. This time, from unpaid – and unpayable – personal medical debt!

To fulfill that declaration, RIP Medical Debt must raise $177,600 to enable us to buy – and then abolish - $17.76 Million Dollars in personal medical debt here in the NYC Tri-State area! That’s correct – as little as a penny on a dollar can buy medical debt on debt exchanges. We don’t simply buy it – we buy it and ABOLISH it.

Just as in 1776, when America’s peoples were concentrated on the east coast and whose population served as both the need and the tinder for a historic fight, our cause will similarly be concentrated. The $17.76M we settle will free some 6,000 families from the grip of a pernicious debt that competes with paying the rent, putting gas in the car – or even filling a medical prescription.

If this resonates with you, and you would like to “make that difference” in someone’s life, respond via email and we will provide you with the details you need to promote this cause.

You are but one person in our world. But for another other person, you can be that world.

Ready to join us and start a revolution?
