Grand Blanc Woman Starts ‘Thank You’ Crowdfunding Site for Student Loans
She says that she’s completely responsible for her student loan debt, but if you donate, she’ll thank you.
Katie Curnow is a 33-year-old Grand Blanc resident with over $90,000 in lingering student loan debt. She’s done a lot of things to help pay off her debt – from working side jobs (apart from her full-time job) to deferments. Now, she’s just saying “thanks” for donations.
It’s called Katie Thanks You. And, for different levels of donations, you’ll receive different incentives: from simple “thank yous” to homemade crafts sent to your home.
Before any crummy comments can even be typed, remember – this is just like any other crowdfunding site. You may not like it, but you also don’t have to donate. I give her credit because she takes full responsibility for her loans, also admitting that her post-graduate plans have not matched up with her degree.
I’ll be done paying my student loans next April, but I’m also in the hole $500+ per month until then. I give her credit for being bold, brazen and charming at the same time. Kudos, Katie! Good luck on your loans and your career!
