Student Loan Relief

Hi, my name is Sam, I’m just a regular guy who wants to make someone’s life a little better and easier. With this campaign I’m raising money for my friend Jonathan to help pay his student loan debt. He is an amazing person with a passion for life that most only dream of, but is currently running himself ragged trying to pay for life and his student loans!! He currently has $250,000 of student loan debt!!! I know that’s CRAZY right?!   But let me tell you a little bit about this amazing guy!! He has worked hard his entire life starting from a young age, being raised by a single mother who had two other kids. He constantly was trying to ease the burden by working since he was a teenager.  He never  asked his mother for anything because he knew she was struggling to pay for everyday life.  Jonathan had a passion and wanted to make his life better so he went to college. He was an amazing student that put in the time and effort and constantly made the deans list while working multiple jobs to pay for living expenses and books! After graduating from college he went on to obtain a doctorate degree. Unfortunately with all that hard work and determination  came that very hefty student debt.   Now that he has graduated the repayment has begun! His currently makes the minimum payment each month which is over $1,600 and at this pace it will take 30 YEARS to pay off!!.. He is a great persons who aspires to help others and his true ambition is charitable causes. I know in  the future IF he can pay off his loans, he would like to give back to as many as possible.   Being the amazing person he is, he still will not ask for help even if it means struggling everyday for he next 30 years, so I have started this campaign for him and hope to surprise him!!! Even if we only raise half of the money I know it will bring him to tears of joy!! So please help out, I know he could use even the smallest donation! Even $5!! Thanks for your time and support!  Oh AND if we end up raising more than the $250,000 we are going to pay it forward to someone else with student loan debt!! So PLEASE spread the word! And use #studentloanfree
