Over ONE MILLION Signatures!!! Now what?

Late last night, the petition in support of H.R. 4170, The Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012, surpassed ONE MILLION SIGNATURES!  This amazing feat could not have been accomplished without the active support and participation of every one of you.  I am absolutely elated, incredibly proud and forever thankful to each and every supporter of this movement for your hard work and dedication to something we all truly believe in.

Announcing FSLD's New Endeavor: The YouLobby.com Campaign

Dear Friends and Supporters:

I'm writing today to announce a new partnership between ForgiveStudentLoanDebt.com and YouLobby.com.  YouLobby.com is a new crowdfunding site designed to help organizations such as FSLD to raise funding to support a vigorous lobbying and advocacy campaign.

We've made incredible strides since January, 2009, going from a fringe idea to a mainstream, national debate in just a few years. . .and we did so without any money (other than my own savings and 401(k) that I've personally invested in the cause).  Now it's time to kick our cause into high gear and to bring our message into the halls of Congress.  To do that, however, we need funding.  

Have You Recently Graduated And Defaulted on Your Student Loans?

Looking for potential interview subjects willing to share their story with a reporter.  Specifically looking for a relatively recent graduate (2005-2012) who has already defaulted on their student loans.  If you fit the description and are willing to share your story, please email me at mail@forgivestudentloandebt.com and I'll forward your email accordingly.
