We Occupy Jesus is a non-profit organization that seeks to unite atheists, theists, and everyone in-between to change the world for the better. We are excited to launch our first major project...

JESUS, THAT WAS EXPENSIVE!


aka... We're going to pay off someone's student loan debt!


And that someone could be you or someone you nominate. Donate any amount of $5 or higher to be automatically entered. Any gift of $100 or more gets you a T-Shirt!





The more donations we receive the higher the payout! A portion of the donations will go towards fundraising fees and t-shirt distribution. Anything left over is yours!


(Of course we will ask for official proof of student loan debt before payout. Mamma didn't raise no fools).

I nominate my friend "S", I'll provide her name if she wins, of course. 20 years ago she was working on her Masters degree when her boyfriend at that time discouraged her from achieving it. She broke up with him, married a wonderful man who supports her, but she still owes the student loans. She has paid off the equivalent of the principle but due to compound interest over two decades she still owes tens of thousands dollars. She has consulted a lawyer who said her only option at this point is to pay off her loans with credit cards, divorce her husband (who is wonderful!), and file for bankruptcy to discharge the credit card debt because student debt can't be discharged through bankruptcy. But she is too honest to do that, and loves her husband too much to divorce him. So, she continues to make payments every month knowing that without a miracle she will never be able to pay off her loan.

I'd like to nominate my son, Travis Dimmers. He owes about $7000. He started to get his degree when he was 16, but quit because all of the adults enrolled in the program made fun of him for being so young. But, they're still making him pay off the debt even though he didn't finish and he can't go back now that he's 22, because of the debt. Makes me angry people killed his dream!

Student debt. We all have it. Myself included. Education should be affordable, if not free. Instead, education is now being used to put each and every one of us in yokes of servitude. Before we even become rational adults, we already find ourselves swimming in tens or even hundreds of thousands in debt, forcing us to toil away in the machine until this debt is either repaid, or until we die. Education was not meant to be a form of self-enslavement. Let's all give back what we can, and perhaps we can help one another out from under the mountain of student debt they've shouldered us all with.

After going to an Ivy League school for my B.A., and a Big Ten college for my M.F.A., I owe over $163,000 in private student loans (since I'm Canadian, I was not eligible for federal loans, or most scholarships). It would be amazing to pay that off!
