PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania – November, 5th 2014 – Recent college graduate Montez Smith is introducing “Fight Sallie” on Indiegogo in an attempt to address the national student loan debt crisis. The campaign showcases a new website designed to help students to eliminate their student loan debt by providing them with student loan advice, videos, and programs. But the most unique thing about this project is Fight Sallie’s student loan bailout fund, titled Fight Back.
The Fight Back fund takes revenue from video ads shown on FightSallie.org and uses it to purchase student loan debt from banks & debt collectors. Then once Fight Sallie owns the debt, they forgive it. “There are far too many people who have student loan debt and feel completely helpless. So we wanted to create a multi-faceted resource that both educates students and helps them to take action” said Smith, FS’s founder.
The Fight Sallie team is looking to raise $250K to help them further develop their website, digital materials and purchase their first round of student debt. To jump-start the campaign, the Fight Sallie team is offering super cool kickbacks to everyone who gets involved. Perks include original campaign swag, a chance to host a Fight Sallie video and two tickets to their launch event in Philadelphia. But for those who cannot make it, the party will be live streamed for all to enjoy.
From its pending website to its new buyout program, the Fight Sallie Mae Project is sure to make a much needed change in the lives of students. For a more detailed look at Fight Sallie and to contribute to their campaign, visit their IndieGoGo page at:
