Sponsorship - only a matter of time (and also expressing thanks)

I wish to express thanks to my amazing readers who offer their talents, and continue to volunteer regularly for All Education Matters (AEM). I know that they have bills to pay, families to feed, and must also contend with their own personal travails. These people remind me of why I am proud to be an American. Their efforts are the best gift that I could ever receive for my upcoming birthday. So, let's all take a moment to thank them.

I am also working on securing sponsorship. I've done this type of work before. However, now it's different because I have an amazing crew of people who have a great deal of knowledge about carrying this out - they are working as hard as they can to make sure this happens. So it's only a matter of time.

On that note, I've raised another $100+ in donations. Thanks to those of you who have donated. Every little bit counts. If you can spare $5-$10, that would mean so much to this recently incorporated non-profit.

I have a big file of Student Loan billing Papers going back 10 plus years.

The are from a number of different banking and Gov't Co's.

Even though I could not pay the debt, I have always kept orderly, chronological records, as best I could. My main motivation being fear over every billing statement, and over very large thousands of dollars owed.

And that is a big motivation.

But still, my records show numerous different entitys and banks, as well as the serpentine progress of my Student Loans.

God willing, I will be able to show the progress of my Student Loans within a 10 to 12 year period, on my little blog. From Womb to Tomb. With all Corporate interests involved, and each one getting $$$ or a whack, so to speak.

And of course It will reflect all of the different banking and Government Co's that have been involved.

Along with that chronology, of course, the logical progress from the 79 thousand I owed in 1997, to the 272 thousand I owe today. And beyond.

A very simple and factual progress of a single person's debt (with no co-signers).

That single person being myself. And the debt being my Student Loan debt.

It is an ambitious project, I think, because I do not think any person alive can explain all the ins-and-outs. All of the selling and re-selling of my Student Loan Debt. From Administration to Administration. Bank to bank. Public to Private, with the lines crossing, and then back again to Public.

The history of my Student Loans defy Scholarship and Legal analysis, I really do believe.

But in the end, an explanation is a poor substitute for a solution; especially for the poor, with no time to wait.

And a Humane solution forthe poor is very pressing, and weighs heavier with every soul destroying day, month and year of Debt.

May God help us all.

Sincerely, John Doe, and I wish I was dead sometimes.
